This face-on view of the old Charlotte Street School shows the oldest section of the building, which dates from 1884. It was designed by James C. Dumaresq of Halifax, who also designed the New Brunswick legislature, and Harry H. Mott of Saint John.

The Charlotte Street Arts Centre (CSAC) is proud to announce that a stunning artwork, entitled Red Rhythm by the late artist Charlotte Glencross, is now on permanent display at the centre. Graciously donated by Jon Thompson, the artwork is a wall piece created in 1986 that showcases Glencross’ characteristic exuberant style of hand-dyed yarns and monofilament woven into sculptural form.
Thompson’s donation and the installation of this artwork at the centre follows last year’s retrospective of Glencross’ work at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, The Fabric of Her Life, where a similar piece, Blue Waves, was displayed. Red Rhythm has found a natural new home at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre as the centre itself represents a culmination of arts advocacy and community work that Glencross saw to fruition and left as one of her many legacies to Fredericton.
“Red Rhythm illuminates the whole hallway in such an organic way. It looks like it was meant to be there. We are so honored to have Charlotte's work grace the walls, and so thankful to Jon Thompson for his generosity,” says Lesandra Dodson, director of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre. Red Rhythm can be viewed on the second floor of the CSAC, in the hallway leading to the Auditorium. This space, designated for works in the permanent collection of the centre, is newly inaugurated with the installation of Glencross’ work. The centre wishes to also thank Vita Plume, curator of The Fabric of Her Life, for her support in the acquisition.
Centre hours are from 9am-10pm daily. The public is welcome to visit the centre during open hours to view the new installation.
