1. FAA Launches Second Artists in the Schools Series
The Fredericton Arts Alliance is sponsoring a new series of Art in the Schools projects. The FAA will pay artists $500 to work with a school
classroom for about 25 hours on a project to be coordinated with a classroom teacher. Priority will go to projects that involve the students
directly and that produce something of lasting value for the school, the class, or the students.
In the first series, which ran last spring, students created murals in three schools, a book of photography in a fourth, individual original
paintings in a fifth, and worked on a film/digital media project in a sixth. Artists can work in any media – a musician working with
children’s words to create a song, creating a dance to dramatize a history lesson, a visual artist working with a class to illustrate class
stories and create a book. The FAA will also cover all material costs involved in the creation, upon submission of receipts.
The program is administered through the Anglophone West School District, and its Fine Arts Coordinator, Andrea Penney. Application
forms and detailed criteria are available from her at [email protected] The FAA encourages teachers in the area to make
proposals as well as artists to come up with ideas. We will work with teachers and artists to pair up proposals to make exciting things
happen. The guidelines are flexible enough to permit a wide range of suggestions to come forward.
The deadline for applications is November 28.

2. Maritime Shino: New work by Lee Horus Clark at Gallery 78
Interesting and beautiful surprises always emerge from Lee Horus Clark's wood-fire kilns. His process creates a magical array of natural
ash on his organic forms. For 15 years, Lee has experimented with indigenous materials for his shino glazes. Maritime Shino is his first
exhibition where the shino glaze is derived solely from minerals and elements collected right here in the Maritimes. These works were
fired in an Anagama kiln that Lee designed and built himself at his home in rural New Brunswick.
The exhibition will continue until November 16, 2014 along with My Favourite Things featuring paintings and drawings by Jessie Babin,
Ann Balch, Joanne Hunt, Susan Paterson, and Cathy Ross
Gallery 78 is open weekdays: Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm and on the weekends: Saturdays 10am-3pm, Sundays 1-4pm. Or visit
virtually at: www.gallery78.com. We look forward to seeing you soon. Back to top.

Osage County) and features Leighton Meester (Country Strong, Gossip Girl) and Tony Award winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer). The

7. Connexion ARC presents the Cold Cuts Video Festival Nov 6-20
The presence of digital media and the online world is now ubiquitous. Its relevance is unquestioned. Its scope is poignant and inescapable
– and we must revel in it! From November 6-20, Connexion ARC will host the Cold Cuts Video Festival on tour from Dawson City, Yukon.
Curated by Nicole Rayburn, this year’s theme, Revel in It!, explores the world of pop culture and mass media, through the work of artists
who are enveloped by it, who wallow in it, and who from within its spectrum, reflect on the possibilities of social reconfiguration and the
plurality of identity, offering both a critique of contemporary culture and a shameless and simultaneous embrace.
Exhibiting artists include: Ryan Trecartin; Pipilotti Rist; Kent Monkman; Stephen Andrews & John Greyson; Istvan Kantor; Kelly Richardson;
Jeremy Bailey; and Lisa Birke. Videos will be on exhibit at Connexion ARC, and at various locations in the downtown (see
www.ConnexionARC.org for details).

8. Carl Parker and Penelope Stevens Open Solo Exhibitions at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre Nov 7
Two new solo exhibitions open at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre on Friday, November 7, 2014. Something Recognizable, an exhibition of
stylized acrylic paintings by Carl Parker opens in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery, while #myhiphegemony, an exhibition of linocut prints by
Penelope Stevens opens in the Penny Gallery. Both openings happen concurrently from 5:30-7pm.
Quispamsis-based artist, Carl Parker, has shown his paintings across Canada, most recently in Calgary, Alberta, as well as internationally,
at the La Biennale d'Arte Contemporanea di Firenze (Florence Biennale, 2011).Something Recognizable, a collection of acrylic paintings on
canvas, is Parker's second solo exhibition in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery. Parker paints abstract, landscape and figure paintings with
rich, impressionistic texture and a vivid colour palette - sometimes with a touch of whimsy in the subject matter.
#myhiphegemony serves as an exploration of the young female, transforming through the lens of her iPhone, into a feminist. Fredericton
artist and musician, Penelope Stevens explains, "I don't know when feminism became cool; when our culture, through social media and
popular marketing, grabbed hold of feminism in a hegemonic distortion of its true values. The free spirits of the world, hairy armpits in full
view, are suddenly raised to fashionista status, while subverting the underlying principles of equality and justice. Is it sexy to be feminist?"
The Charlotte Street Arts Centre welcomes the public to join us for the opening reception of Something Recognizable: Stylized Paintings by
Carl Parker in addition to #myhiphegemony by Penelope Stevens, on Friday, November 17, 2014, from 5:30-7pm. Both exhibitions run
until December 9, 2014. Back to top.

th
Theatre New Brunswick Honours the 100 anniversary of WW1 with a production of Somme Letters Home, from the letters of Private John
Bapst Cronin, on November 9 at The TNB Studio. Adapted by Caleb Marshall.
This intimate, two-actor play, starring Fredericton’s Alex Donovan and Sharisse LeBrun, is based on actual correspondence between one
New Brunswick soldier serving in France, and his family at home in Saint John. Somme Letters Home is drawn directly from the forty-five
th
letters Pte. John Bapst Cronin wrote to his mother, brother, and his sister Molly in Saint John while he served with The 49 Western
Battalion during the Great War these letters are artifacts, preserving a personal, military and Canadian history that we must never
forget. Such a thorough first hand depiction of the soldiers experience is rivaled only by some of the Great War novels of the period.
Tickets available at the door: $15 for General; $10 for Students. Space is limited ; please call 460-1381 to reserve seating. Back to top.
13. NB Film Co-op’s Monday Night Film Series presents Calvary Nov 10 & 17
Calvary
November 10, 2014, 7:30pm at Tilley Hall, UNB Campus
John Michael McDonagh
Ireland/United Kingdom, 2014
English
100 minutes
Principal Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Aidan Gillen, Kelly Reilly, Dylan Moran, M. Emmet Walsh, Domhnall Gleeson, Marie-Josée
Croze
In his follow-up to The Guard, writer and director John Michael McDonagh returns with a superbly written, darkly funny and powerfully
moving mystery set in a sleepy coastal village in County Sligo, Ireland. Anchored by a magnificent central performance from McDonagh’s
Guard star Brendan Gleeson (The Grand Seduction), Calvary focuses on local parish priest Father James (Gleeson), who, after receiving a
death threat from one of his parishioners during confession, spends what he believes to be the last week of his life pondering whether
he’s made any difference at all to his community.
Though Father James apparently knows the identity of his would-be murderer, he is more concerned about the struggling souls around
him than of his own fate, and calmly goes about his weekly rounds in this quiet village where all is not as it seems. One by one, the
assorted villagers (and potential suspects) are given a chance to tell their variously unhappy stories: a smug local tycoon (Dylan Moran,
Good Vibrations), the cuckolded butcher (Chris O’Dowd, The Sapphires), his promiscuous wife (Orla O’Rourke), her surly lover (Isaach De
Bankolé, The Limits of Control), a disillusioned cop (Gary Lydon, War Horse), and a cynical doctor (Aidan Gillen, HBO’s Game of Thrones).
ARTSnews November 6, 2014
Volume 16, Issue 43
6
At the same time, Father James is visited by his troubled daughter Fiona (Kelly Reilly, Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster), the result of his tragic
marriage in the years before he joined the priesthood. In each encounter, the benevolent priest patiently argues for the value of the
Church—and of faith in general—in a modern society increasingly skeptical of this seemingly archaic institution.
Featuring lively performances, spectacular scenery, and crackling dialogue, Calvary offers a contemplative portrait of faith and guilt. Filled
with fierce gallows humour and touching compassion, it’s a must-see for believers and agnostics alike.
Fading Gigolo
November 17, 2014, 7:30pm at Tilley Hall, UNB Campus
John Turturro
USA, 2013
English
98 minutes
Principal Cast: John Turturro, Woody Allen, Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara
John Turturro (Margot at the Wedding, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) has played a number of strange parts in his acclaimed career, but in
his new film as writer, director and star, he tackles his most unlikely role yet: a man who decides to enter the gigolo game more than a
little late in life, with the aid of an equally novice pimp played by none other than Woody Allen. Accept this brilliantly absurd premise and
you’re in for a hilarious ride.
Fioravante (Turturro) is a florist whose friend Murray (Allen) is facing insolvency with the imminent closure of his small bookshop.
Searching for a way to save the business, the friends hit upon the idea that, in a New York full of wealthy older women with active libidos,
surely a greying Don Juan could make a few bucks. And so, adopting the names “Virgil Howard” and “Dan Bongo,” the duo embarks upon
the world’s oldest profession.
Turturro sets up this crazy idea in quick, bold strokes, then goes on to explore just what it would mean to be a man-for-hire well past his
prime. His brilliantly leftfield comic sensibility is given even greater punch by a marvellous supporting cast, including Sharon Stone (Bobby)
and Sofia Vergara (television’s Modern Family) as eager clients, and Vanessa Paradis (Café de Flore) as a lonely and sheltered orthodox
Jewish widow whose tentative romance with Fioravante plays out under the watchful eye of Dovi (Liev Schreiber, The Reluctant
Fundamentalist), a vigilant member of the neighbourhood’s Jewish police.
In the midst of Allen’s remarkable resurgence behind the camera, it’s a thrill to watch him work onscreen with someone else’s material.
His wit and distinctive comic rhythms are in fine form here, and Turturro knows how to use the legend to best effect. With Fading Gigolo,
Allen adds yet another indelible role to his catalogue of New York stories.
This term, 12 limited release, independent, foreign, and Canadian films will be shown. The film series is open to everyone. Regular
admission is $7; Member’s admission is $4. January-April Memberships are $20 (regular), and $12 (Students/Seniors (65 years and
up)/NBFC Members). Memberships are available at the door.

14. Two Women Artists Exhibit Diverse Contemporary Views at the UNB Art Centre Nov 14
Join us on November 14 at 5pm at the UNB Art Centre in Memorial Hall for the opening of two special exhibits - Unstilled Egos: Selected
Works by Chantal Khoury, and Dozay’s Glooscap/Kluscap Series.
Chantal Khoury’s artistic practice focuses on figurative studies that probe the female identity, awkward beauty, and lost glamour. Her
compositions are inspired by images found in newspapers and magazines and often feature a “lonely protagonist.” Working in oil paint,
Ms. Khoury’s paintings are simplified and abstracted, featuring a Fauvist palette with intense colour contrasts and loose brushwork.
The paintings presented in the exhibition Unstilled Egos: Selected Works by Chantal Khoury are striking studies in contemporary
expressionism. Originally from Fredericton, now based in Montreal, Chantal Khoury received her BFA from Concordia University.
Dozay’s Glooscap/Kluscap Series, was born of a desire to bring attention to the distinct aboriginal culture of the Wabanaki tribes of North
America. Illustrating the story of Glooscap, the legendary founder and guide of the Wabanaki people, the exhibit features episodes in the
life of Glooscap and traces his adventures along the Wolastoq. Each painting is accompanied by text panels containing stories, poems and
historical notes describing the landmarks in each of the paintings.
ARTSnews November 6, 2014
Volume 16, Issue 43
7
These airbrushed acrylic paintings have the appearance of dreams, or recollections, referencing the stories the Wabanaki people have
always known but which were never written down. Each painting features a unique border design based on ancient petroglyphs, birch
bark baskets, clothing and wampum. Dozay was born and raised on the banks of the Saint John and Tobique Rivers. She attended the Nova
Scotia College of Art and Design.
This exhibit is presented in conjunction with the University of New Brunswick’s Mi’kmaq-Maliseet Institute’s Circle of
Understanding program designed to promote Mi’kmaq-Maliseet culture and history within the community. As part of this program
please join us on December 3, 2014 for the Circle of Understanding Program, Celebration of Wolastoqey and Mi’kmaq Culture.
Unstilled Egos: Selected Works by Chantal Khoury and Dozay’s Glooscap/Kluscap Series will be on view at the UNB Art Centre’s East and
West Galleries November 14 - December 19, 2014.
The UNB Art Centre is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The galleries are open from
9am-4pm weekdays and for special events. Admission is free to members of the public. Everyone is welcome. Back to top.
15. Nasty Shadows Theatre Company presents Rougher Magic: A Cubist Shakespeare by Robert Moore Nov 14
Is there anything older than the story of civilized folk trapped on a desert island? This particular telling of the age-old tale centres around a
loving yet strangely indifferent father whose powers are failing him, his fantastically nasty dogsbody of a spirit helper, his estranged
daughter and her several alter-egos, and last and (too often) least, a colonized son/brother (the island's only indigenous inhabitant) who
has yet to figure out the rules governing the master race's notions of "civil conversation."
Sound familiar? Rougher Magic: A Cubist Shakespeare is written through, as much as around, Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Using one of
the Bard’s final plays as the source for a stunningly original story, Rougher Magic is a funny and moving deconstruction of the various ways
in which The Tempest (that extended meditation on the inevitability of death) constructs race and gender.
Robert Moore’s Rougher Magic, directed by fellow Shadow co-founder, Scott Shannon, and performed by a tribe of veteran ‘Nasties,’
offers an unforgettable theatrical adventure for cast and audience alike.
This production will run in Fredericton and Saint John on four “Featured Fridays” at 7:30pm nightly. The dates and locations are:
