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.
Time: 12:15 PM
