Shared Energies Residency
SJAC is thrilled to welcome back Maria Doering for a summer artist residency, this time joined by her collaborator Fiona Chinkan! Visit Fiona and Maria during open studio time (July 18th until August 9th, Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 5pm) to see their amazing body of work – here’s more information from the artists: 'We are thrilled to travel to Saint John this summer and work in the Percival room at the Saint John Arts Centre in Saint John, NB, Canada. We will be there from July 18th until August 9th. If you are in the area please stop in to visit us Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 5pm to see our progress on a set of four new large drawings.

Welcome to the Shared Energies Project
“Shared Energies: Cells, Stars and the Fluidity Between” is a collaborative project between New York City (USA) based artist Fiona Chinkan and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (Canada) based artist Maria Doering.

Why ‘Shared Energies’?
We chose the title “Shared Energies” because of the exchange of the visual language and creative energy that happens between the two of us when we are drawing on the same piece of paper. On a conceptual level, the project is a merging of two ideas. The first being, “Outer Space” (the cosmos) and the second being, “Inner Space” (within the human body). Ultimately, this work is about creating and becoming something much bigger than our own individual work, which can only exist with both our input.' -

HARBOUR: Taking Inventory
A guest workshop designed and facilitated by Third Space artist in residence, KC Wilcox.

Please join us Sunday, June 23rd, noon at Saint John Arts Centre, for a workshop with artist KC Wilcox. (See itinerary & accessibility notes below)

Taking Inventory is a workshop for artists, writers and thinkers to develop new directions in their own generative process. During this workshop, participants will explore their relationship to objects in the setting of natural space. Over the course of one afternoon, participants will investigate Tin Can Beach through a short series of immersive experiences that will engage their sense of observation and response. Participants will work alongside one another to curate a unique inventory that speaks to their understanding of material and natural worlds. This practice will set the framework for a discussion on confounding boundaries between the two. Participants will have the opportunity to explore in both visual and verbal language what objects represent (in terms of lived experience / as necessities for survival / in excess / as cultural icons) and how they fit into the spaces we share with non-human life.

12:00 Meet at the Saint John Arts Centre
1:30 Arrive at tin can beach for exploratory walk
3:00 Return to Saint John Arts Centre for workshop activities
5:00 Finish
To sign up for Taking Inventory, please RSVP by emailing tiersespace@gmail.com with the subject line “Taking Inventory”. This workshop is open to everyone, free of charge. All materials will be provided..

SJAC is pleased to invite you to join us for an evening with award-winning writer Anne Compton, as we launch her new book of poetry, Smallholding on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 7 pm. “In her fifth collection, celebrated poet Anne Compton turns her attention to smaller objects – the strangeness of thought that plays around common, everyday things and occasions. Mindful of the mysterious quality of daily life, she is the diarist of a river’s moods, fog in its variations, and the reliable return of plant and birdlife. In poems that travel between the exterior and interior, the book arcs from the objects observed to the observing mind, its vagaries and slippages.” ~ published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside ~

All Welcome |  Books will be available for sale and signing.
