Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre Openings
October 8 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
“In the Loop/Beyond the Hoop” is a showcase of rugs and textile sculptures by talented fibre artists from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick! These works have a whimsical feel and portray a love and admiration for locations, brands and moments that influenced each artist.
Laura Kenney brings technically skillful rug work with messages of climate change and natural life. Logan Milne brings a piece that is a love letter to a farm that influenced her life as a person and artist. Lucie Quintal’s “Pillow Talk Series” expresses her experience as an Artist in Residence at Sunbury Shores; telling the story of the people she met and the connections she made during her time in St Andrews. Finally, Larry Weyand’s sculptural work is almost an homage to the ’90s era and brings forth a sense of nostalgia and humour.
“In the Place Where You Live”, a solo show by Theresa MacKnight, depicts the activity of wildlife in Saint Andrews at night. This show demonstrates Theresa’s love for painting and the animals of Charlotte County that inhabit and adapt continuously, regardless of our human intentions or wishes. With the use of trail cameras and her exploration with neon colours, Theresa interpreted the inexact, accidental, and sometimes humorous photographs. The trail images are taken at night so there are no true colours. When Theresa painted the images, she invented the colours in the composition along with her fascination with fluorescent paint.
