Navy Island, 2015, Oil on Canvas, 11 x 14"


I found out last Friday that one of my mapscapes, C-Port, was acquired a few months ago for the UNB permanent collection. It is currently being displayed in a show entitled "Spotlight on the Collection" at the UNB Art Centre:

 



"The West Gallery features a display of recent acquisitions to the collection by artists such as Ann Manuel, Cliff Turner, Michael McEwing and others. This diverse range of emerging and established contemporary New Brunswick artists demonstrate their facility with a variety of media, such as sculpture, painting, printmaking, drawing, photography and collage."


The latest landscape paintings for the NTNB Conservation on Canvas project will be showing at the 6th Annual Dooryard Arts Festival in Woodstock. Check out dooryardfestival.com for complete details.

As one of the festival events,  I will be giving an Artist Talk on Saturday July 26th at 2PM at Connell House.

I plan to visit all of the NB Nature Trust preserves and paint at least one landscape painting from each site.
