The Fredericton Region Museum is holding an event in recognition of local artist Linda Bartlett on Wednesday August 7th beginning at 7 pm.
Linda is a New Brunswick resident, who has been painting for more than 30 years. She received her training from the Saint John Vocational school, where her passion for painting was nurtured. Her favoured medium is acrylic on canvas, and her subjects include historical locations in New Brunswick, and countryside landscapes.
Linda’s paintings can be found on display in a number of locations and galleries in the maritime provinces. Recently, 62 historic paintings of the area exhibited at the United Church in Sheffield. They are now on display in her studio, the Art Attic. Linda Bartlett has also recently been published, on the front page of the Daily Gleaner and after 14 years of work, she unveiled the Art Attic, which is a cottage she built almost entirely on her own.
The cottage represents the ideal space for Linda to express herself artistically, and she invites artists who also require a place to create, to join her. If you’re interested in learning more about the Art Attic, visit the Facebook page.
Linda has recently published a collection of her works depicting the Sheffield area called Sheffield A Place in Time. It is for this reason that the event is being held. The publication of Sheffield A Place in Time, with its stunning collection of landscapes, coincides with the 250th anniversary of the Maugerville/ Sheffield area, making it an exceptional commemoration and testament to the historic and contemporary beauty of the area.
In addition to the art of Linda Bartlett is the opportunity to hear the music of the Inishowen fiddle winner, Sidney Murgatroyd. Sidney received the fiddle in recognition of his talent, courtesy of the Irish-Canadian Cultural Association of New Brunswick and Canada’s Irish Festival on the Miramichi.
Please join us at the Fredericton Region Museum tomorrow night, Wednesday August 7th at 7 pm.
