SACKVILLE, N.B. – Join the Owens Gallery staff Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. for Owens After Dark.
This event is the backstage pass to the inner-workings of the Gallery! Go behind-the-scenes to rarely viewed spots at the Owens where all the ‘magic happens’!
Venture downstairs to the painting vault and take a look at the 800 artworks that are stored here. Learn about various pieces within this collection from the most historical items to the newest contemporary Canadian artworks to be included within the acquisitions.
Take a tour of the Fine Art Conservation Laboratory and talk to our Fine Art Conservator, Jane Tisdale. Learn about elements of conservation from someone currently working in the field. Jane will be discussing caring for the collection and visitors will get a first hand look at works with conservation issues and some undergoing repairs.
You can create artwork of your own in the lobby, where there will be pin-back button making. Sit down, grab a cup of hot chocolate and be inspired by the many exhibitions that surround you.
The Owens Open House is a community event for all ages sponsored by the Friends of the Owens.
