In this sumptuous two dimensional "gallery," James Wilson, Peter Larocque, and Peter Buckland showcase thirty artists to tell the story of contemporary painting in New Brunswick.
Beginning in 1970 and continuing until the end of the Millennium, Portraits introduces readers to some of New Brunswick’s most provocative painters. Beginning with an essay by Peter Larocque, the book introduces each artist with a biographical sketch, reproductions of selected paintings, and a photographic portrait of each artist by James Wilson. With each succeeding chapter, Portraits: New Brunswick Painters / Peintres du Nouveau-Brunswick develops a larger experience of contemporary art, its practise and its practitioners.
Featured artists include Glenn Adams, Bruno Bobak, Molly Lamb Bobak, Paul Édouard Bourque, Rebecca Burke, Rick Burns, Gerard Collins, Lionel Cormier, Francis Coutellier, Marjory Donaldson, William Forestall, Yvon Gallant, Angel Gomez, Toby Graser, Glenn Hall, Suzanne Hill, Kathy Hooper, Herzl Kashetsky, Raymond Martin, Paul Mathieson, Stephen May, David McKay, Ghislaine McLaughlin, Fred Ross, Roméo Savoie, Stephen Scott, Nancy King Schofield, Peggy Smith, Roger Vautour, and Lynn Wigginton.
