Upcoming Exhibit - 2023 Season
"Seaweed Bouquets & Oyster Clusters"
For the 2023 season we are celebrating the natural world around us! We are very excited to host the work of artist Catherine Beaudette and her exhibition "Seaweed Bouquets & Oyster Clusters" from June 28th to September 17th
"Invisible to the naked eye, the ocean is populated with a plethora of exotic organisms, which include an array of seaweeds and oysters. Often seen as common ‘weeds and shells’, in this exhibition Catherine Beaudette challenges conventional perception of our ocean’s innate complexities. Assembled and photographed on the beach, Beaudette’s seaweed bouquets are imbued with an ethereal elegance. Her paintings of oystersecho the ocean’s rich biodiversity. Harbingers of climate change, seaweed and oysters provide vital replenishment for the environment. Their exquisite beauty is aptly captured and represented in this intriguing collection of photographs and paintings."
Catherine's exhibition will be paired with a collections based exhibit, exploring the natural heritage of the Northumberland Strait, and showcasing what there is to be found in our waters!
