Welcome to the New Brunswick Gallery.  

 

The 2017 exhibit is the Carnagie Rug Hookers "Places We Have Been:  Journeys in Rug Hooking".

This is a broadly themed exhibit, conceived with the intention of encouraging each rug hooker to create an original and personal work based on a memory of a passage or place that is subjective and emotive.  The journeys represented in this exhibit are literal and figurative, physical and spiritual.  They are countries we have traveled to, placed we have lived, passages in life  and journeys in healing.  We invite you to open your mind and let your spirit soar as you travel with us.

The underlying objective of the show is to demonstrate that, as practical as they are, hooked rugs are also art ... and we are artists.

 

The Carnagie Rughookers, founded in 2004, meet every Friday morning from 9:30 to 12:00 at the Saint John Art Centre to hook rugs.  Members are of all ages, from many backgrounds and interests, and work in a variety of styles and techniques.  The Rughookers named their group after Andrew Carnagie, benefactor of the construction of the Saint John Free Public Library which was build in 1904 and is now home to the Saint John Art Centre.
