Entries in Sarah Jones artist (11)
Welcome to Project 100! Starting on January 15th, 2013, I will create one 6"x6" work of art per day for one hundred days. Each piece will be available for $100.
Follow this blog to chart the progress of the project! Photos of the new work will be posted daily (I am aiming for a noon release).
A ongoing compilation of the Project 100 work will be available on the studio's portfolio page.
Reasons for Project 100:
1. I like little paintings.
2. I am trying to encourage the idea that local, original art is both affordable and accessible.
3. I like a challenge. My brother dared me.
Wish me luck. Yarrr.
Studio building in context. Ten, maybe eleven, feet across.
I overheard a tour guide describing my building to a group of cruise ship passengers as "Stuart Little's" house - just as my one-hundred-and-fifty pound Newfoundland dog tumbled out the front door. Hah, Stuart Little.
Very pleased to share this press release from the Province of New Brunswick:
New Brunswick artists selected for next Francophonie Games
29 November 2012
FREDERICTON (GNB) – Four young New Brunswick artists will represent team Canada-New Brunswick at the international cultural competition of the VII Games of La Francophonie. The Games will be held Sept. 6-15, 2013, in Nice, France.
"The Games of La Francophonie are an extraordinary experience for our province's young artists,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Trevor Holder. "They provide a unique opportunity to represent the province internationally while showcasing their talents and competing against artists from other countries."
Team Canada-New Brunswick will be represented by the following artists:
● Kevin Arseneau, Moncton, storytelling;
● Pierre-André Doucet, Moncton, literature;
● Jaret Belliveau, Moncton, photography; and
● Sarah Jones, Saint John, painting.
New Brunswick artists between the ages of 18 and 35 were invited to take part in the one of the Games' 11 cultural competitions: street performance (puppet, juggling or hip hop), painting, sculpture, song, storytelling, original dance, literature (short story), photography and digital creation.
The Canadian delegation to the Games is divided into three teams: Canada, Canada-New Brunswick and Canada-Quebec.
"The Games provide young New Brunswick artists and athletes with a unique opportunity to experience another francophone region of the world and enrich their understanding and appreciation of francophone culture," said Economic Development Minister Paul Robichaud. "As minister responsible for La Francophonie, I am already looking forward to hearing about their many successes."
The Francophonie Games are an international cultural and sporting event held every four years for athletes and artists from member states and governments of La Francophonie. The Games differ from similar events in that they are the only major international games in which sports and cultural activities are presented in a competitive setting.
The athletes representing Team Canada-New Brunswick will be announced in the summer of 2013.
