Rebecca Belliveau

In this series of seven legends, Rebecca Belliveau tells the fables based on the story she documented (and sometimes experienced), and expresses them from the viewpoint of Colette Savoie, her grandmother whose family heritage included the traditional skill of fortune telling. 

Colette is the voice of these authentic Acadian legends, each from a region of Acadia:  Bouctouche, Ste-Anne-de-Kent, Kouchibougouac, Richibouctou, Shediac, Memramcook and Miramichi. 

The visual representations displayed encompass the scenic and breathtaking beauty of these locations, and within it, a portion of the legend is visually integrated. 

Rebecca Belliveau, who resides in Moncton, uses a combination of photographic elements and textured acrylic mediums.

The launching of the art exhibition Légendes de mon Acadie will take place on Thursday December 14 at 6:30 pm at the Galerie des Bâtisseurs of the Centre communautaire Sainte-Anne (CCSA).
