by Charlotte Wilson-Hammond
September — October 2020
During the last fifty years, Charlotte Wilson-Hamomnd has used her body as a way of accessing the strength, sensuality, vulnerability, beauty, and now the fragility of the female form, all part of the eternal cycle of birth, growth, regeneration, and death.
In 2015, Charlotte began a new series of conté drawings and shadow photograph/print/drawings, once again using herself as the subject. In this work, Wilson-Hammond reflects on the fragility, vulnerability and yet the beauty and strength of this timeless human condition, noting that one of the most mystifying aspects of aging is that one’s presence is diminished within the general public, often to the point of invisibility.
Three years in creation, the exhibition consists of large (36 x 59 inch) drawings using photographs of Charlotte’s shadow in the landscape. After digital manipulation, the resulting images are printed on semi-transparent mylar at reduced saturation, then the entire surface is worked with coloured pencil. She thinks of Mylar as a skin, and connects its transparency to the quality of shadows.
The work connects a 50-year career of making art using the female body “as it relates to the landscape, and I view the land as a body as well, so they are connected in a very integral way,” says the artist.

Exposition itinérante des artistes de la Résidence de Création Interculturelle 2019/ Cross-Cultural Creation Residency Exhibit
La Résidence de Création Interculturelle 2019 a été organisée en partenariat avec l’Association acadienne des artistes professionnels.le.s du Nouveau-Brunswick (AAAPNB), ArtsLink NB et Mawi’art: Wabanaki Artist Collective.
Nicole Haché est originaire de l’île Lamèque et est maintenant basée à Caraquet, au Nouveau-Brunswick. Depuis 2002, elle participe activement à l’effervescence des arts et de la culture dans la province. Au cours de son parcours artistique, l’artiste acadienne s’est démarquée en participant à plusieurs projets d’expositions individuelles et collectives ainsi qu’à plusieurs résidences d’artistes aux niveaux provincial, national et international, en Europe, en Amérique du Nord et en Afrique. Durant la Résidence de Création Interculturelle, elle se consacre davantage à une méthodologie qui examine les liens imperceptibles des interactions humaines en société, tout comme la vie cellulaire du corps humain. Œuvrant autrefois comme technologiste en laboratoire médical, celle-ci conjugue l’histologie à une démarche artistique qui entrelace le savoir et la créativité. L’installation Autobiographie collective témoigne de son expérience et de sa sensibilité face aux relations interpersonnelles et à l’importance d’une symbiose collective tout en célébrant la diversité.
Merci à la Fondation Sheila Hugh Mackay et au gouvernement du Nouveau-Brunswick pour leur généreux soutien.

Biography of Carolyn Ritchie Bedford
Carolyn has exhibited in various group shows in Nova Scotia and had many solo shows of paintings which have seen reviews and now, exhibits her sculpture work. She does her own bronze work and has a small foundry to produce the pieces and also fires her own clay work. Carolyn was apprenticed in the bronze and believes strongly in hands on throughout the process of any medium. For over 50 years, Carolyn has also worked in the advancement of the arts, working on the provincial board, operating a Co-op gallery, organizing a symposium, giving presentations, teaching and keeping her interest in local art events. At present she is on the board as Vice Chair, of Creative Pictou County arts council. She has held workshops in anatomy and life drawing and sculpting and opening her studio for tours.
Carolyn’s successful completion of the public sculpture piece,” The Village Well” in the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre was a culmination of five years’ study and apprenticeship of the lost wax process of bronze sculpture and a recent venture into the public art sector. Her most recent installation was working with John Todd Vassallo completing the outdoor riverfront art piece, “Chillin by the River” in New Glasgow after learning the art of welding and cement sculpting from Todd leading to the set up of her own shop. Now with a new collaborative colleague she plans other new sculpture pieces for New Glasgow area and the county. She continues to paint and sculpt for exhibition and pleasure enjoying the comradeship of many creatives in the county.
Murielle Caissie has exercised her painting skills over the past decade, in a playful exploration of dreams, imagination and the unknown. Artistic expression and growth are never far from her thoughts and during her extensive teaching career in Southeastern New Brunswick, she was able to promote the importance of cultural showcases as learning tools to encourage awareness of the arts and artists at all school level.
Born in the vicinity of Néguac, New Brunswick, she has saltwater running through her veins and draws from woodland memories of childhood make-believe to bring texture and fluidity to her compositions. “Out in the country, all the senses open up and our inner world is enriched by nature” said Murielle. The acrylic abstractions she produces nowadays with the use of spatula, fingers or rag are intensely vibrant, reflecting her guest for perfection.
She has lately begun exhibiting on her own and in group shows, at the Moncton Public Library gallery space, the Assumption-Life gallery, etc. Murielle is present in the Centre culturel de Kent-Sud in Bouctouche and the Shediac Artists Village, and one of her paintings has recently been added to the City of Moncton’s Art Collection.
