Fredericton / Calendar / Masterworks: Homecoming—A celebratory selection from the international collection

Masterworks: Homecoming—A celebratory selection from the international collection

Beaverbrook Art Gallery
703 Queen Street
Fredericton, NB


After ending its four-year North American tour, Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery is finally home once again!

At all six tour venues (Florida, Alabama, Calgary, Winnipeg, Sarnia, and Whistler), the Gallery told its story and expanded its audience, as Masterworks resonated with both young and old alike, and with people from all walks of life. Many expats from New Brunswick came out in droves to celebrate paintings that were familiar to them, and to share their own personal stories and memorable encounters with particular works of art on view.

There were even several people living in Florida and Calgary that recounted memories of meeting Lord Beaverbrook and of attending the grand opening of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in 1959, when New Brunswick became the official home of the most significant and valuable art collection in Atlantic Canada.

This celebratory presentation of Masterworks does not feature all 75 works that were included in the monumental exhibition tour, but gives special focus to many of the Gallery’s most prestigious international holdings, many of which have long been popular favourites of both local residents and visitors alike.
