Celebrating Feminism, Creative Empowerment, and Collective Success in a Spectacular Exhibition
George Fry Gallery
June 1 – August 29
From June 1 to August 29, The Coven illuminates the diverse talents and visionary artworks of the Advanced Studio Practice (ASP) program’s graduates: Daisy Warren, Natasha Sacobie, Danielle Thorn, Jasmine Williams, Erin Chasse, Emily Richards, and Olivia Joynt. Combined, these emerging artists have mastered the intricacies of Wabanaki Visual Arts, Jewellery/Metal Arts, Ceramics, Photography/Videography, and 3D Digital Design while also embracing a collective creative journey.
“We all have our own path, but allowing them to intertwine this year has been a magical experience,” said ASP student Jasmine Williams.
The Coven exhibit will open June 1 at 4:30pm at the George Fry Gallery for an opening reception and will run until August 29, 2023. The George Fry Gallery is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm at 408 Queen St., Fredericton.
The Resilient Spirit of Feminism
Within the Advanced Studio Practice exhibition’s enchanting confines, visitors will embark on a journey through a tapestry of artistic styles, narratives, and expressions of feminine creative power.
“The Coven is more than just a collection of artworks. It’s a testament to the magic that unfolds when women come together and tap into their creative essence,” said ASP student Danielle Thorn.
As creatives, we delve into the realm of imagination and possibility, allowing ourselves to be guided by our feelings and intuitive understanding of synergy.”
A Collective Achievement
NBCCD’s Advanced Studio Practice program is known for its focus on peer support and collective achievement, instead of mere individual practice. Throughout this one-year certificate program, students have the chance to creatively collaborate with students from different disciplines, which they haven’t had the opportunity to do since their first year at the college, in Foundation Visual Arts. In addition, the program instills them with the knowledge, connections, and confidence to jumpstart their creative career.
Within this empowering artistic community, these graduates have nurtured an environment that celebrates one another’s successes, and resulted in the exceptional work of The Coven.
