Take your soul on a journey!

Moments of reconnection can happen within yourself, while immersed in the world of art. Art galleries – large and small – are plentiful in New Brunswick, in our large cities or our quiet towns. There’s art everywhere if you know where to look. Local galleries weave in the many cultures within our province, and each has a little something for everyone – you may even be able to take a piece home with you.
