This September and October, the Charlotte Street Arts Centre’s Penny Gallery will showcase the work of emerging/youth artists, under the curation of CSAC summer student intern, Meagan Fanjoy. The exhibition, entitled Emerging Moon, is sponsored by the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council as part of Fanjoy’s internship.
Emerging Moon will feature a diverse sampling of artworks by Maximillian Ackerson, Carissa Boer, Sarah Davison, Rebecca Ewing, Meagan Fanjoy, Jesse Giffin, Kayleigh Gough and Emily Peter-Paul. The artists, all in their 20s, will display works in painting, drawing, mixed media and bead work.
Curator Meagan Fanjoy explains that she and a number of other artists in the exhibition are/were students at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and the theme of Emerging Moon will be, “artists emerging and illuminating the community, so that our work can be seen.” Fanjoy describes that each artist connects spiritually to his or her work, and thus the moon is also an appropriate symbol to communicate that deep relationship.
Meagan Fanjoy is a Canadian artist and full-time student, currently heading into the fourth year of the Bachelor of Applied Arts program at NBCCD/UNB. Fanjoy’s current interests include textiles, particularly intricate detailing and patterns. About her own work, Fanjoy describes, “My work exhibits my eye for detail, as well as my interest in the spiritual realm and connections to living creatures.”
Emerging Moon will be on display in the Penny Gallery beginning August 28 and the exhibition runs until October 23, 2014. The opening reception for the Emerging Moon will take place Friday, September 19, from 5:30-7pm, to coincidewith the exhibition opening in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery. The public is warmly invited to attend the opening reception at 732 Charlotte Street, to meet the artists and celebrate their emergence into the arts community. The Charlotte Street Arts Centre opens the doors of creative expression to all.
