A place where stories are told by the light.

A gallery and hop to dinner

Monica and I visited our son, Ryan, in Fredericton on a mild Saturday in January. Our family destination was the Beaverbrook Art Gallery to enjoy the excellent 1-hour guided tour through the various exhibits and permanent collections. It was our first time at this gallery since the new wing was added in 2017. It is a beautiful space full of light. I’ve included just a few photos below but, if interested, you can browse all my photos of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery including descriptions of each piece.

After the gallery, the three of us hopped next door to Issac’s Way for a delicious meal and stimulating conversation as we recollected our gallery experience. This restaurant is also a venue for emerging artists and displays works on all the walls. Patrons can bid to purchase the artworks in a silent auction format that lasts for several weeks. It’s genius marketing as it keeps partons coming back to the restaurant to check if their latest bid is still on top.

It was a fun afternoon. I enjoy going through the photos again and again 😀

    What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, Nelson. I have always thought that the Kreighoff collection at the Beacerbrook is second to none; but had not realized there were so many other beauties – from Maude Lewis – Mary Pratt – Alex Colville – Fred Ross, etc, etc…superb. A motivation to visit again for sure. Thank you for sharing. Marg
