City of Saint John Art Bank Adds Three New Works

The Saint John Community Arts Board ​announces the addition of three new works of art to the City of Saint John Art Bank.  After a call for submissions to the City’s Public Art Collection, three local artists’ works were selected by jury to add to the Art Bank.

Carole (Andree) Lulham's “Legacy uncovered”

Carole (Andree) Lulham's “Legacy uncovered” is a contemporary mosaic built using traditional hand tools and techniques used in the 11th century. This mixed media mosaic is made with some 1,000 hand cut glass pieces, fixed onto the hand-built substrate with durable thinset cement.

Lulham is a contemporary mosaic artist who settled in Saint John five years ago, following a career in agronomy and the plant sciences. She is a juried member and grant recipient of ArtsNB, AAAPNB, Craft NB and CARFAC Maritimes. She had four solo shows in New Brunswick, the most recent in October 2023 at Sunbury Shores Arts Centre in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. She was juried into a national mosaic art competition held in 2023 held at Macmillan Gallery in Nanaimo, BC. She has several mural commissions in New Brunswick communities now and enjoys leading cultural mediation projects. The latest was a mural building event held at the Centre Culturel de Dieppe for 75 newcomers in May 2023. She offers mosaic classes at the AX Sussex Arts Centre and NBCCD.

A native of Quebec, Carole is fluently bilingual (English and French). She has a Masters in Environmental Design from the University of Calgary, and a B.Sc. Agriculture (Plant Sciences) from McGill University. Most of her working career was in Alberta, with large agricultural cooperatives, and roles in post secondary education (Instructor, director, dean). She has practised mosaic art for over twenty years, received a Master of Mosaic Art from Scuolo Mosaici in Venice, and learned from world mosaic masters through workshops in the US and Europe.

Deanna Musgrave's Sea Horse

Deanna Musgrave's Sea Horse is a 30" by 40" acrylic painting is a highly dynamic and fluid expression of memory, story, and a deep connection to water.

Musgrave’s work has been a fixture in the Saint John and New Brunswick art community for over a decade. Her paintings are immediately recognizable; ethereal and vibrant, they encapsulate traits that many artists struggle to balance. They are objectively beautiful yet wrought with complex symbolism and capture a narrative while remaining vehemently abstract.

Early on in her career, she was selected by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in 2007 for the Studio Watch Award which aimed at introducing promising new artists to the public. She was later included in multiple Beaverbrook Art Gallery exhibits including “Off the Grid: Abstract Art in New Brunswick” in 2014 (curated by Terry Graff) and in “Materiality and Perception” in 2019 (curated by Tom Smart). Most recently, she was selected to be the first artist to fill the entire green wall of the Elizabeth Curry Gallery (Beaverbrook Art Gallery) with her work “Transcendence” in 2022 (curated by John Leroux).

Her work has been enthusiastically reviewed by the New Brunswick media, and she has won numerous grants and awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, New Brunswick Arts Board, Mount Allison University, and the University of New Brunswick. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University (2005) and a Master of Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of New Brunswick (2019) where she delivered her thesis titled “Connecting Crossmodal Interactions in Visual Music to Create ‘Mindful’ Experiences.”

Brad McIntyre’s untitled piece

Brad McIntyre’s untitled piece reflects his views that art is a shared language, a dialogue that invites viewers to connect with their own interpretations. The collaborative nature of this interaction breathes life into his creations, as each observer contributes a unique perspective. Through this collective journey, his art becomes a reflection of shared experiences.

McIntyre is a passionate painter whose work transcends boundaries, blending airbrush and traditional acrylic brushwork with a distinctive vision that explores the world around us.

Originally hailing from Nova Scotia, McIntyrenow calls Saint John, NB his home. By drawing inspiration from our daily lives, Brad transforms everyday moments into captivating visual stories.

A graduate of McKenzie College in Halifax NS, McIntyre has had a 25-year art career, with the last 10 years as a full-time painter. After mastering the airbrush, McIntyre's work has won multiple awards at various automotive and custom paint events and has in recent years focused more on fine art creations. With his paintings being purchased by collectors across North America, they have also earned recognition from his peers for his unique perspective and technical skills.

These three works will on display the public areas of City Hall.

The City of Saint John has a large collection of visual art and heritage pieces that have been purchased or donated to the City. This work can be seen within City Hall, as well as various locations throughout the City, including the Saint John Arts Centre, Market Square, and the Saint John Free Public Library. The Art Bank program provides an opportunity for the City to expand on this collection.
