Here’s a quick look at a few things coming in this weekend.
Art in the Centre
The Charlotte Street Arts Centre presents a special exhibition of works by seven resident artists this coming Friday, December 12, 2014. Art in the Centre will feature paintings by Guy Vezina, Margaret Bannister, Donna Mulholland, Katie FitzRandolph, Laurie Winter, Chris Harding and pottery by Karen Burk in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery.
The public is invited to attend the opening reception and open house/ open studios event on the 12th from 5:30-7:00pm.
Sharktooth Records Showdown
When it comes to music, Saint John has always had that special something, a unique vibe that can’t properly be put into words. We’ve all tried. It’s not related to a specific sound or a specific band. It might best be described as a resilient attempt to build a sustainable infrastructure that supports and encourages creative output – or something like that.
Enter Sharktooth Records. A small label dedicated to “Syndicating the sounds from the bowels of the Bay of Fundy” by releasing cassette and digital releases from a broad range of Saint John performers.
Three Sharktooth bands will perform at The Capital Complex on December 12, 2014. Learning, Stegosaurus and Reagan’s Rayguns.
Book Signing at Westminster Books
In April, 2014, Jo-Ann published a book, 385 Northumberland Street. The book is an account of life in New Brunswick from the end of the Second World War to the 1970’s. It gives a light, cheerful view of this life through the use of vignettes, anecdotes, and short stories.
Jo-Ann Fellows will be signing copies of her book, 385 Northumberland Street, at Westminster Books on December 13 and 14, starting at 1pm.
