Art Tells Stories represents two Art organizations in Northern New Brunswick, Canada. In Bathurst it is the Bathurst Art Society and on the Miramichi it is the Miramichi Art Core association.
Approximately 65 visual artists are represented by our two associations. After some discussions in the spring and summer of 2011 we decided to work together to further art in the region.
Our goal is to work together to plan and organize events that:
- promote art in or regions
- encourage more young artists to get involved in the visual arts
- draw attention to the works of both new and experienced artists
- demonstrate that the arts should be part of any regional development
- show the importance of art in our every day family and work environments
- encourage government to more fully understand the importance of art
as a vital part of business in northern NB.
