Making Things Matter: Five Painters

Category: arts 91

Exhibit begins online October 27. Opens October 30 at Gallery 78.


Stephen May, David McKay, Steven Rhude, Réjean Roy, and Stephen Scott are among the most important and thoughtful artists working in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia today.  These five artists “Make Things Matter” as they carefully observe life.  They each depict the natural world and the objects in it.  They paint in ways that make us see differently and consider – ideas, memories, space.  Their work is material to the time and place in which we live.

Making Things Matter is an exhibition of nature as cast through a many-tiered gauze of textures.  These artists observe and muse and then convert, direct, conduct the bolts of their understanding onto surfaces for us to see and consider and enjoy.  These artists create art that matters.  This exhibition shows us how to look at what matters, returning us to ourselves along the way.  The exhibition will be available on-line beginning Tuesday, October 27.

Gallery 78, 796 Queen St. (corner of Church and Queen), Fredericton
.  Open: Tues to Fri 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sat 10a.m. – 3 p.m., Sun 1 – 4 p.m. or visit virtually at:
