Free lunchtime presentations at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery

Join Manager of Collections and Exhibitions John Leroux each month for an exciting, intimate, and fast-paced look at artworks on display.

In July: Claude Roussel's Monumental Models

Claude Roussel’s extraordinary work as an artist, educator, and activist brought a modern consciousness to Acadian art, and has had a profound influence on the growth and development of New Brunswick’s cultural landscape. Roussel has worked with almost every medium, and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery is honoured to exhibit 22 scaled maquettes for public sculptures and architectural artworks designed and built by Roussel over the past 65+ years – a lifetime body of work that has few equals in the modern history of visual art in Canada.

In August: From Stone to Surgery: Barbara Hepworth in the O.R.

Famous for her organic abstract sculptures, finding marble in short supply at the end of the 1940s, British artist Barbara Hepworth took her sketchpad into a hospital operating room. One of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s often overlooked modern masterpieces is a dramatic painting by the artist that channels faith in medicine through a scene of compassion, virtue, delicacy and simple heroics.
