A much-anticipated exhibition, Self Portrait features new monotypes by Francis Wishart and colourfully bold paintings by Gerard Collins. Though not entirely a show of self portraits in the strict sense of the word, these bodies of work portray the extension of selves of these two talented men. Self Portrait delves into their harmony with the natural world, their workspaces (Francis’ at his camp in Nigadoo; Gerard’s home studio and surrounding rural and urban landscapes), and is all grounded with bits of Canadiana and seemingly disparate objects to make a pleasing whole: a portrait of themselves.
Gallery 78 is delighted to offer rare works by David Silverberg, a 1940’s oil by Miller Gore Brittain, lithographs by Jean-Paul Riopelle, wood carvings by Nancy Schofield among many other fine artworks for sale in New Brunswick Collects.
Both exhibitions begin on April 20 and continue until May 13. We look forward to your visit!
