Wabanaki 2024

June 14 @ 5:30 pm 6:30 pm

Gallery on Queen is pleased to invite you to our annual “Wabanaki 2024” exhibition showcasing various Indigenous artists and mediums. We are proud to have this opportunity to feature works from so many working Indigenous artists in New Brunswick.

This exhibition celebrates the heritage, the strength and the variety of forms that these artists create. The exhibition takes place in June to coincide with National Indigenous Peoples Day and we would be honoured to have you attend the opening celebration on June 14th, 5:30PM.

The Wabanaki people, also known as the People of the dawn, are the easternmost tribes of Turtle Island, also referred to as Northeastern woodland tribes. Their culture and language have been in existence for over 10,000 years. Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqewik, Penobscot, Passamaquoddy and Abenaki are the member tribes of the Wabanaki Tribes that have endured the longest and earliest contact with the new man on this continent.

“Wabanaki 2024” is a multidisciplinary exhibit that features accomplished indigenous artists in Atlantic Canada. The exhibit includes visual artists, wood carvers, silversmiths, bead and quill works, alongside a body of work that from masters that have passed on. Also included is a museum component where we exhibit baskets and tools that represent the connection from the past to the modern day artists.

This year’s show features works from:
Alan Syliboy, Audrey Arsenault, Mel Beaulieu, Ingrid Brooks, Nelson Cloud, Lisa Dutcher, Tara Francis, Tim Hogan, Brian Francis, Chan Polchies, Charlie Gaffney, Francine Francis, Garry Sanipass, Gordon Sparks, Justin Sappier, Percy Sacobie, Marcus Gosse, Nancy Oakley, Natasha Sacobie, Shane Perley Dutcher and Pauline Young.
