This expansive exhibition is paired with a collection of work by New Brunswick artist Amber Leger. Born in 1971, Leger is a native of the Acadian community from eastern New Brunswick where she maintains her home and art practice. She studied at the Université de Moncton in the early 1990’s with Marie Ulmer, Claude Gauvin and André Lapointe. She has exhibited in many juried group and solo exhibitions in the City of Moncton and in the surrounding communities and has won many prizes over the years. Her work may be found in private collections in Canada and the US as well as in the public collection of the City of Moncton. Learn more about Amber and her work here.

These exhibitions open on Friday, August 14 from 4-7 p.m. The public are invited to come by to mingle outside and tour the gallery in limited numbers. Face masks are required, and handmade masks will be available to buy.

These exhibitions will be on display until Saturday, September 5 and always online at www.gallery78.com.
