The Sculpture Garden at Kingsbrae

Kingsbrae Garden is home to a growing collection of sculptures, principally in the Sculpture Garden, home to the winners of the Kingsbrae Garden Canadian Scupture Competition. For a look at the Sculpture Garden, watch the video below. The marriage of art and gardens is a natural one. Around the 27-acre Kingsbrae site are other works: metal and glass creations by Don Pell, several works on loan from the Beaverbrook collection, and a variety of animal figures. Despite these, a Dutch windmill and collections of over 50,000 plants, there is always room for more.

ARTrageous is about partnerships and community. Organizations throughout Charlotte County come together to celebrate the arts and to promote and raise awareness of the talent found not only in our own backyard, but right across the country.

ARTrageous and Kingsbrae Garden are home to the highly-acclaimed annual sculpture competition, an annual free community concert featuring Sistema, a market in the garden, as well as many art workshops for children from area schools.

ARTrageous will take place on June 10th, 2017. For a full list of events please visit: http://www.artrageousnb.com/

The Art Gallery is located adjacent to the Garden Café, in the turn-of-the-century Edward Maxwell manor home, original to the estate that makes up the bulk of Kingsbrae Garden’s 27 acres. Two full walls of window give stunning views of the surrounding gardens,  Ministers Island and the Passamaquoddy Bay.

In 2016, the Gallery will feature the 6th Annual Folk Art Festival Exhibit. This fun event brings together colourful paintings and sculpture created by folk artists from across the Maritimes.

What is Folk Art?
Folk Art by definition is the art produced by self-taught people – in other words, those who have not studied at art school. However today, the term “Folk Art” is also used to describe techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
