Local Artists in Campbellton and Dalhousie Selected for ArtsNB’s Artist in Residence Program

 

 

 

 

 

A pair of local artists will be the newest ArtsNB – Artists in Residence this summer.

 

 

Audrey Arseneault of Campbellton, NB and Sylvie Pilotte of Dalhousie, NB were 2 of 10 to be picked for the program.

 

 

According to The Tribune, ArtsNB provides those who were chosen with a location where they can work while engaging with the public, with that comes a $3,000 grant.

 

 

Not only will this help the artists, who were hit hard by the pandemic but it also hopes to boost tourism, by encouraging people in New Brunswick to visit the different regions where the artists are set up.

 

 

Arseneault will be at the Sugarloaf Provincial Park from August 11-15, 2021, while Pilotte will be at Mount Carleton Provincial Park from August 25-29, 2021.
