13 April Sunday 2pm : Artist Talk: André Lapointe: Maritima Regular Admission. Join artist André Lapointe for a talk on the André Lapointe: Maritima exhibition at the New Brunswick Museum until April 27, 2014. This temporary exhibition is a part of the New Brunswick Museum’s “Know Your Own Artists” series. The NBM is proud to recognize and support contemporary New Brunswick visual art through this series. André Lapointe’s sculptural work has focused on interactions with the maritime landscape. His art works depend on an element of visual surprise where natural versus man-made is not immediately or even definitively obvious. André Lapointe’s inspiration is the common elements of his surroundings - water, snow, ice - stones, clay, sand - trees, branches, and leaves. (In English)
