FAA Artists in Residence Brian Dykeman & Tony Robinson Smith

FAA Artists in Residence 2010 Summer Series

 July 10-16 2010

Fredericton Arts Alliance Artist in Residence Brian Dykeman

Brian Dykeman, Woodland Creations ... creating in front of the York Sunbury Museum!


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).  

Brian Dykeman is a wildlife sculptor/carver.  Working in wood, Dykeman strives for highly realistic, yet unique compositions that are both challenging for the artist and exciting for the viewer.  He will be displaying pieces at all stages of development, from design, pattern development, rough carving, fine carving, and painting.  Dykeman will work primarily on fine carving and painting throughout the week.  He is also prepared to give carving demonstrations outside the museum.
