ARTSLINK AGM AND ATLANTIC VERNACULAR PANEL TO BE HELD IN SAINT ANDREWS

ArtsLink NB is hosting its annual general meeting in Saint Andrews Oct. 14th, at the Huntsman Marine Science Centre.

 

SAINT JOHN, N.B. Sep. 21, 2018 ArtsLink NB is hosting its annual general meeting October 14th in St. Andrews. The AGM and will be followed by a panel discussion asking what is the “Atlantic Vernacular”? What are the materials and motifs defining artists of this region? Both events will take place at the Huntsman Marine Science Centre, 1 Lower Campus Rd, St. Andrews, on Sunday, Oct.14th, from 10-4 p.m.

 

Attend the AGM to find out what your provincial professional artist’s association – ArtsLink NB – has been up to. You’ll also have a good look at what programming and projects we are planning for the year ahead. This is a chance to connect with your fellow artists, give the organization feedback, and get more involved with arts initiatives in New Brunswick.

 

We’ll switch gears in the afternoon, and host both a panel and group discussion about regional identity in the arts. ArtsLink NB is embarking on a multi-year project dedicated to exploring the “Atlantic Vernacular”, and would love member input in planning a larger symposium and publication. Come share your experiences with art colleagues from around the province.

 

Saturday’s multidisciplinary panel features:

SARAH JOHNSON POWER, JERRY ROPSON, CHARLIE GAFFNEY, and SHOSHANNA WINGATE

 

The event is free and open to the public.
