The Art of Storytelling Through Very Fine Folk Art

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada

Take a course this Spring and learn about the magic, fun and stories associated with folk art and how to express them in a work of art. Learn to tell a story in a painting – then tell the story. Beginners to experts – this is a different way of thinking and musing. Course paintings will be acrylic on canvas. Great drawing skills are not necessary but a sense of humour is. This is not your typical folk art. Registration Deadline: March 3, 2018

Calais Bookshop selects “Barkskins” By Annie Proulx for its April 25th Reading Group

April 25 @ 4:15 pm - 6:30 pm
Calais Bookshop, 405 Main St.
Calais, ME 04619 United States

"In the late seventeenth century, two penniless young Frenchmen, Rene Sel and Charles Duquet, arrive in Canada, then known as New France. Bound to a feudal lord for three years in exchange for land, they become woodcutters – barkskins. Sel, suffering extraordinary hardship in the forest he is charged with clearing, is forced to marry a Mi'kmaw woman. Duquet, crafter and ruthless, runs away, becomes a fur trader, then sets up a timber business. Proulx tells the stories of their descendants over three hundred years – their travels across North America, to Europe, China and New Zealand under stunningly brutal conditions – the revenge of rivals, accidents, pestilence, Indian attacks and cultural annihilation. "Barkskins is an extraordinary marriage of history and imagination from one of America's most formidable novelists," according to the book cover.

The EAC’s Children’s Theater Workhop staged “The Bubbles, the Beatles, and the BFG” in 2015 and “The Curse of the Mona Lisa” in 2017, receiving in return bouquets of roses, ovations and looks of pained confusion from its adult audiences. No matter! We forge ahead into the unknown, because we are aware that theater is always about risk and certainly never for the faint of heart. A new season is currently underway. All those interested in acting, directing, set design, costume, or backstage roles are urged to join us Saturdays from 10-11:30 am (snacks provided!) at the EAC. Tarah Waters and Jon Calame will co-direct the upcoming project, which is yet to be named. Please do come bask in the glory of underground Bohemian theater with us.
