University of New Brunswick Art Centre Digitization
The UNB Art Centre’s contribution to the ArtCan.ca digitization project includes 73 paintings and drawings by Pegi Nicol Macleod and Lucy Jarvis, as well as over 60 sketchbooks by Lucy Jarvis. While the UNB Permanent Collection numbers over 2000 artworks, works by these two artists were selected because of their importance as founders of the UNB Art Centre.
While the works of Pegi Nicol Macleod are perhaps more well known than Lucy Jarvis, the UNB Art Centre in conjunction with the Beaverbrook Art Gallery has launched a special exhibition series, curated by Roslyn Rosenfeld, firmly re-positioning this important maritime artist within a national context.
The UNB Art Centre will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2016 with a series of special exhibitions as well as a special anniversary launch of the ArtCan.ca on-line catalogue.
