From October 5th to December 2nd – Gallery Colline at the University of Moncton, Edmundston Campus in New-Brunswick. With ArtCADIE, artistic expression takes the environment of the maritime, agricultural, riparian, islands or urban landscape to tell its “acadienneté”. The artists’ origin is diversified: New-Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince-Edward-Island, Iles-de-la-Madeleine and Gaspésie. Their works were selected after a competition, inviting them to submit a creative painting or sculpture project by the theme “Visions of Acadian Space”. Works of a guest artist from Louisiana and works from the Acadian artist Nérée DeGrâce are also part of the exhibition. Created in 2004 in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Acadia’ founding, ArtCADIE is the result of the association between the Acadian Museum in Bonaventure Quebec, the Acadian Festival of Caraquet and the Marine Musuem of Iles de-le-Madeleine and Celebrations Canada. The exhibition has already been presented in Normandy, Britain, France and in several places in Canada.
This is a great way to discover an important part of our Acadian’ culture and pride! For more information, call 506-737-2014
