Fiddles and fibre grace the Barracks
Celtic fiddling and ceramic sea-dwellers will share space in the Garrison District July 16 to 22.
UNB Fiddle Camp founder Katherine Moller and ceramic/fibre artist Emilie Grace Lavoie will work on projects focused on the theme of “the river” in Casemate 11 of the Soldiers’ Barracks.
Moller will use the stories and history of the river as inspiration for composing Celtic fiddle pieces. Visitors can learn how she goes about composing an original piece.
Lavoie, who will later have an art residency in Estonia, will create figures of ceramic and fibre, imagining them as water-dwelling creatures who eventually adapt to life on land.
The artist residencies, organized by the Fredericton Arts alliance, encourage visitors to interact with the artists. The studio is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
