Visual storytelling and imagery can sometimes reach us in a compelling way that words aren’t able to. Beyond Words: a photographic gallery, presented by ten students from the second year Diploma program in Photography at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, is an exhibition that explores the power of image. 

Beyond Words is a showcase of stories that reflect an eclectic mix of interests ranging from fine art and documentary photography to work of a more commercial nature: editorial, portraiture, baby and wedding photography. The artists in the exhibition include: Sara Bakker, Allie Beckwith, Dori Drewniak, Felicia Duguay, Mary Grace Haynes, Ian Lawrence, Jessica Moulaisson, Natasha Pascale, Jessica Radcliffe and Cheryl Spring.

These students are all part of a course called Photographic Entrepreneurship: Gallery and Marketplace led by Fredericton artist, Karen Ruet. During the term they learn about the business of photography, and also the gallery side of creating work. They visit local galleries, interview artists, curators, and professionals working in the arts to gain insight into the options of working as professional photographers or creating another career in the arts after graduating from the program.

The photography program at NBCCD brings together individuals who are interested in developing their photography and design skills. Although their interests are diverse as a group, they share a common bond and purpose of helping one another reach the height of their creative potential as visual storytellers. Each has a unique voice, and raison d'etre. This will be one of their last performances as a group before they travel into different directions, working toward their individual professional careers.

Beyond Words: a photographic gallery opens in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre on Wedneday, April 16th from 5:30-7pm. All are welcome to attend the opening reception and meet the artists. The show will run until May 12, 2014. The Charlotte Street Arts Centre opens the doors of creative expression to all.
