CORNER BROOK
Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Art Gallery presents an exhibition of Anne Meredith Barry’s Gros Morne Journals and Translations. In 1998 and the following summer of 1999, Anne Meredith Barry had the opportunity to work as artist-in-residence at Canada’s newest UNESCO Heritage Site, Gros Morne National Park, on the West Coast of Newfoundland. The exhibition records her response to the biology, geology and history of this magnificent region and examines the “paper trail” of one artist’s creative process. This exhibition is both documentation of the profound effect a new environment can have on an artist and an exuberant tribute to the Gros Morne landscape. It will include paintings, original prints, mixed media drawings, collage, and bookworks and will be accompanied by a publication with text by award-winning author, Kevin Major. The exhibition runs until Sept. 15. Gallery hours are: Monday to Saturday, 11 to 5 p.m.
