Nature of ART of Nature
The UNB Art Centre in Fredericton is pleased to host the exhibition Nature of ART of Nature, a collaborative project with the Nature Trust of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (NBCCD), the New Brunswick Museum, the UNB Art Centre and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, which officially opened on Friday, April 12, at 5 p.m.
Curated by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s newly installed director, Terry Graff, Nature of ART of Nature was organized to celebrate the Nature Trust’s 25th anniversary of conserving special natural places in the province and educating the people of NB about their natural heritage.
Nature of ART of Nature is an exhibition of artworks created by NBCCD students who explored, as many artists have before them, the age-old relationship between art and the natural world. Students took part in group excursions to one or more of the thirty-five provincial Nature Trust preserves. They were asked to consider the specificity of place, to observe, to contemplate and to assimilate aspects of their experiences into their creations.
The result is a multi-disciplinary exhibition of twenty-four works: black and white and colour photography, ceramics, jewelry/metal arts, fibre arts, painting and sculpture, in a variety of contemporary and fresh perspectives. The Nature of ART of Nature exhibition is on display from April 12 to May 24. Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm (open during lunch). The UNB Art Centre is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, and Fredericton Campus.
