Favourites list: May 2016
I've decided to do a favourites list once in awhile of things I come across in my digging around the New Brunswick art and craft scene - here is the first one! Some are artists in the CreatedHere directory, some not yet...
New Brunswick Artists take to Facebookand it's awesome. This group is a dedicated space where artists can share their work and snapshots of their studio spaces. Check it out!
This rug that Emily McCumber (a.k.a. the Spinner Weaver) is making. I want one!
I recently discovered multi-disciplinary artist Denise Richard. She is a teacher at the New Brunwick College of Craft and Design, and makes props and costumes for theater companies amongst other things. I recently took a natural dyeing workshop with her and was blown away by her knowledge and talent! Just look at some of these pieces. I must know more.
This episode of Studio Tour about Marie-Hélène Allain. She is a legendary sculptor from St-Marie-de-Kent whom I would love to meet. She also has a great name. See full interview with filmmaker Matt Brown here.
NB artist Chantal Khoury now makes Montreal home, but was recently in Fredericton for the opening of her parents' new gallery, Gallery on Queen. Her work feels like seeing a scene through the lens of emotion, like she painted a feeling. We'll be seeing more of her on here...
