EXHIBITION: SUZANNE HILL: SINGULAR

New Brunswick Museum, Market Square.

Until 16 April 2017: Produced by the New Brunswick Museum, the exhibition includes mixed media works and installations.  Through the artwork, Hill presents a thought-provoking interpretation of the singularity of the life of human beings.  At the same time, the exhibition is complemented by responses from contemporary literature and dance, highlighting the interconnectivity of cultural forms, in art and everyday life.  Five installations, like the fingers on a single hand, express Suzanne Hill’s exploration of the idea of existing apart from others.  “We are all islands” is the premise around which Suzanne Hill centres her most recent body of work, Singular.

VIMY RIDGE: BEYOND THE MYTHS.

New Brunswick Museum, 1 Market Square.

The NB Hisstorical Society is sponsoring a free illustrated public lecture: “Why Vimy Ridge Matters: Beyond the Myths.”  2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, part of the battle of Arras, fought between April 9 and April 12, 1917. Four divisions of the Canadian Corps attacked three divisions of the German Sixth Army. The Canadians lost roughly 3,600 men and several thousand were wounded but captured the ridge, contributing to Canadian morale. 1936 marked the official opening of Canada’s iconic Vimy monument on the site, which was dedicated to nearly 12,000 men who were buried in unmarked graves in France. This presentation will examine the Vimy campaign and go beyond the myths.  Speaker:Maj. (Ret) Tom McLaughlin, chair of the board of the 8th Hussars Museum. This is a free event and open to the public. For more information: (506) 650-8293 or gmarquis@unb.ca   To check on the status of this event in case of bad weather, visit the Facebook site: “The Loyalist House & New Brunswick Historical Society.”
