High Tide: Paintings from the Atlantic Collection

April 5 - April 13, 2015    |    Regular Exhibition

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s superb collection of paintings produced by artists of Atlantic Canada during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries is a source of regional pride and identity. Characterized by a diversity of subject matter, its exceptional quality has been shaped by an understanding and appreciation of each individual artist’s working methods, material explorations, and visual and conceptual concerns.

This exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to view a cross-section of some of the best-loved paintings from the Gallery’s extensive reservoir of Atlantic-based works, and allows each individual work to speak for itself.

Presented are paintings by Mary Pratt, Tom Forrestall, Molly Lamb Bobak, Fred Ross, Miller Brittain, Jack Humphrey, Christopher Pratt, and others.

Curator: Terry Graff
Organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery with the support of the City of Fredericton, and the Province of New Brunswick.
