Art400²

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre 139 Water Street, St. Andrews

The pastiche or collage of curatorship is only as good as the materials it is given. What is fabulous can be augmented, unveiled, turned upside down, or made meta for the universally curious, but it needs to be interesting to begin with, passionate already, even if by quiet means, even if by loud. The materials in this exhibit are fabulously different from one another and yet raucously grounded in the artisanal scene of the crafting culture and memory of this place. Art400² is a collective of artists and curators from New Brunswick who is currently floating between physical spaces. The previous artistic director, Sara Brinkhurst, invited them in to share their current processes with us using the stage of our physical space (a space we are blessed to have and blessed to work for its endurance and evolution).
