World Water Day: Two Photography Exhibitions 💧

March 8 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

UNB Art Centre Celebrates World Water Day with Two Exhibitions.

The UNB Art Centre celebrates its 13th annual World Water Day with two exhibitions, Beachcomber by Gary Weekes and Aqua by Jean-Christophe Lemay. World Water Day (WWD) is an initiative of the United Nations to bring awareness to the importance of water resources and their sustainable management. This year’s exhibition represents two different perspectives on WWD. Weekes’ focus is less about environmental concerns and more about social ones — the use of water as a historic means of transportation as it relates particularly to the Black experience. Lemay on the other hand, presents a series of large-scale photographs that depict the power and beauty of our Canadian waters and its inhabitants. Through his camera, Lemay creates stunning documents of the great Canadian outdoors and invites the viewer on this passionate journey with him. The exhibits open Friday, March 8 at 5 p.m. and runs until April 26.

Weekes’ Beachcomber presents a perspective on Black Canadian history. On the walls are images of the Bay of Fundy’s New River Beach. As part of the North Atlantic, the waters of the Bay of Fundy, are those same waters that touch the shores of England and Africa providing the currents upon which 18th century sailing vessels plied their trade.

Photographer Jean-Christophe Lemay’s exhibition Aqua, directs his lens on Canada’s aquatic environments and the animals that inhabit them. His images are a means to discover the bounty that exists in this country but also to highlight the precariousness of these ecosystems. As a result of habitat degradation, pollution, over-hunting and over-fishing, the world is losing approximately 100 – 10,000 species a year. In Canada alone, it is currently estimated that more than 800 species are on the brink of extinction with over 4,000 more at risk.

Rotchild Choisy: Artist in Residence at the Beaverbrook 🏠

February 15 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

This presentation discusses my artistic journey from 2016 to 2023 and the various projects I have mounted based on my interests in figuration, gesture, neo-expressionism and automatic techniques; my approach to memory and genre scenes through archival images and image banks. I hope to highlight the themes and conceptual models that run through my work in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and media art.

Bio: Rotchild Choisy is an emerging multidisciplinary artist who holds a Baccalauréat en arts visuels (2022) from the Université de Moncton. Between April and June 2022, he presented his work in a series of solo exhibitions at the Alliance Française cultural salon, Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen and Galerie Sans Nom’s Salle Sans Sous, all in Moncton. He has also been awarded several leadership scholarships, as well as the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation Merit Scholarship in 2020. He recently presented his work in a solo exhibition at the Capitol Theatre Art Gallery entitled E.S.M.I, in the 7th edition of the Sudbury Alternative Art Fair and in a group installation at Académie Sainte-Famille as part of Dialogues Riopelle, celebrating the artist’s 100th birthday.
