Fredericton Arts Alliance Artists in Residence 2018 Summer Series

Located in the Soldiers’ Barracks in downtown Fredericton, the series presents local professional artists and fine craftspeople for one to two-week residencies in the Soldiers’ Barracks Casemates (on the corner of Carleton and Queen), in the heart of Fredericton art district. Artists will create an outdoor studio space providing the public with a wonderful opportunity to talk with the artists, learn about their inspirations and creation, and witness professional art in the making. Each week, two new Fredericton artists will be on location to offer their expertise and ideas to the community. The first two resident artists are:

Derek Davidson has been painting professionally since 2009, and specializes in open-air acrylic painting, water-colour painting, and ink sketches. He will be painting and sketching in the studio and outdoors with acrylic, water-colour and ink-based styles.

Emily Kennedy is a local musician and composer who has performed across Canada, and explores a multitude of different musical genres in her work. Emily will be composing short musical pieces for the cello and viola and workshopping the pieces once they are finished.

This residency runs June 25 – July 1.

The Casemates are open daily from 10am-5pm from Monday to Saturday, and 12pm-5pm on Sunday. All are welcome and there is no charge for admission. Donations are gratefully accepted.
