Build the Playhouse 2.0 Project

Can you imagine Fredericton without a live performance venue like the Playhouse? Neither can we. We must make our plan for a new venue a reality before it’s too late. Our community needs it. Our artists need it. Our downtown needs it.

We have put together all of the information we have on the state of the current Playhouse building as well as our plans for our future in a clear and current website called Build the Playhouse 2.0: https://buildtheplayhouse2.ca

Please have a look, follow along, and please SPEAK UP! If you think this project is important, your community needs to hear from you now. You ca subscribe to project updates through this link too!

Gallery 78 opens first solo exhibition from Kathryn Cronin

From September 7 to 23, Gallery 78 is proud to present Kathryn Cronin’s work in her first solo exhibition, Fortified. Delving into a theme she explored during the Advanced Studio Practice program at the NBCCD, she shows in her jewellery how life changes and continues to form her, and one must overcome difficulties. In her words: “This series is made of small, weak segments of wire that I fused together over and over until I had a sizeable piece that is architectural and grand, and infinitely stronger both physically and aesthetically.”

At the same time, enjoy an assortment of secondary market pieces in New Brunswick Collects, wherein works from Miller Brittain, Fred Ross, Tom Forrestall, and Philip Iverson become available once again.


Gallery 78,
796 Queen St. (corner of Church and Queen), Fredericton
Open: Tues to Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-3pm, Sun 1-4pm or visit virtually at: www.gallery78.com

Fredericton Arts Alliance’s Provincial Election Forum on Arts Issues

Fredericton Arts Alliance’s Provincial Election Forum on Arts Issues, September 6 at 7pm in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre

The Fredericton Arts Alliance has organized a town hall forum on arts issues. All provincial political parties have been invited to send one candidate to discuss things cultural and artistic, party policies on the arts, and plans or projects to encourage the arts. Susanne Alexander of Goose Lane Editions will moderate the forum.

The format will consist of opening statements (order of speaking to be determined by a draw), followed by questions directed to the various candidates. There will be an opportunity for closing remarks in reverse order of the opening statements. We are asking Arts News readers to highlight issues they would like raised at the forum. If you have something you want the candidates to address, please send an email with your suggestions to us at: president@frederictonartsalliance.ca.

We would like to circulate five questions to the candidates in advance of the forum to start the discussion rolling, and to ensure that most of the key questions are addressed. Further questions from the floor will round out the evening. Light refreshments will be served. The Fredericton Arts Alliance has organized election forums for every federal, provincial, and municipal election since 1999.
