“The consistency of my work lies in the expressive struggle to use the image as a bridge between the felt and the observed.” – Stephen Scott

Stephen Scott has called the Fredericton area home throughout most of his career painting. After studying at the Ontario College of Art in the early 1970’s he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University in 1978. In 1998 he earned a Master of Arts degree in Art Therapy at Concordia University in Montreal. He traveled and did independent study in Belgium 1980-1981, in Sweden in 1991 and in Berlin, Germany in 2003-2004 and 2005. Read Scott’s full bio.

“After the Rain” Parsing the Wild by Daniel Porter features landscapes and wildlife from central New Brunswick created using pastels. 

Daniel Porter is a resident of New Brunswick, Canada and a great lover of his home province, a student of nature, conservationist & outdoorsman. His work is noted for its attention to unique detail which is tempered and evident by his first hand knowledge and close experience with the subjects dealt with throughout his work.

View all the works in person beginning June 3 with a reception 5-7 p.m. Masks are encouraged. All works are now available online and will be on display until July 2.
