FAA Artists in Residence 2010 Summer Series
July 10-16 2010
The series presents local professional artists and fine craftspeople for one- to two-week residencies. Artists create a studio space and provide the public with a wonderful opportunity to talk with the artists, learn about their inspiration and creation and witness professional art in the making. The residencies will be located at York Sunbury Museum, 571 Queen Street (Fredericton, New Brunswick).
Tony Robinson-Smith is a travel writer. He has published a book of his world travels and several travel stories. Robinson-Smith is currently working on a travel book on the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, a project supported by ArtsNB. During his residency, he will be working on an article for Perceptive Travel, an award winning travel magazine, describing a bizarre Buddhist purification ceremony in a tiny Bhutanese village. On display will be authentic religious artefacts, a travel journal and photographs.
