Materiality and Perception in Contemporary Atlantic Art: The 2019 Marion McCain Exhibition

Deanna Musgrave (New Brunswick), A Conversation With Emma Kunz (detail), 2019. Acrylic on canvas, 47" tondo. Collection of the artist.

October 19 - January 26, 2020    |    Regular Exhibition

It has now been over thirty years that the Beaverbrook Art Gallery has presented the Marion McCain Exhibition of Atlantic Art. The first exhibition was presented in 1987 as a juried show with artwork selected from among a wide array of submissions by artists from around New Brunswick.
This installment of the Marion McCain Exhibition of Atlantic Art, curated by Tom Smart, reflects how art and decorative arts are expressive agents for the individuals creating them. They are also ways for viewers to explore how objects themselves and the materials from which they are made can change the way we see ourselves, our communities and the world at large.

Curated by Tom Smart and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Support for this exhibition has been generously provided by the H. Harrison McCain family.
