Atlantic Vernacular | Coming March 4, 2022

Our biennale exhibition – Atlantic Vernacular features the work of 30 artists and 30 poets, on an online platform!  Each poet responded to a piece of work, with a few additional pieces that drew inspiration from our Fundy residency this past fall.  This exhibition will be live at 6pm on March 4th.  There will be artist talks as well as a talk from our curator, Gillian Dykeman, and our Executive Director, Alison Murphy.
