FAA Artists in Residence presents Melanie Buyting & Mary Grant | NBCCD Barracks

Local painter Melanie Buyting and rug hooking artist Mary Grant will work on art projects from July 29 to August 4 as part of the summerresidence series in the Soldiers’ Barracks.

Mary Buyting, who has submitted her work to the Isaac’s Way, Abbey Cafe, and Max Institution Art Auctions, will be creating three paintings on wooden canvases using acrylic and oil paints, and gold, silver, and copper leaf. The multiple mediums will be used to represent the changing of New Brunswick’s seasons.

Mary Grant, who has been practicing her craft for 17 years and who has taught rug hooking courses across the Maritimes since 2012, will be taking suggestions for trees that are native to the Fredericton area and hook them into an Ingraham Family Mat, and paint it with wool-fabric and yarn.

The artist residencies, organized by the Fredericton Arts alliance, encourage visitors to interact with the artists. The studio is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday, and from 12pm to 5pm on Sunday.
