Ryan Livingstone

Ryan Livingstone was born in New Brunswick and studied craft at NBCCD before moving to Toronto to study printmaking and painting at the OCAD-University where he received a BFA in 2010. He is in love with the process of making and would consider himself to be an artist unbound by medium. His artwork has a visual language that has been intensely shaped and influenced by his east-coast heritage as well as urban and rural landscapes. The work often reflects things within the landscape that may fade, crumble, collapse or burn away. More of Ryan’s art here.

Pamela Marie Pierce

Pamela Marie Pierce is a multi-disciplinary artist who works primarily in pen and ink, watercolour, and gouache. She considers every illustration a portrait, regardless of how seemingly azoic a subject may appear. She sees the world as a series of lines, and connects those ones she can. Originally from Nova Scotia, Pamela currently works and lives in her favourite city: Saint John, New Brunswick. She is self-taught. More of Pamela’s work here.

Dan Culberson

Dan Culberson is a commercial, editorial, and fine-art photographer. Dan started out photographing bands and the music scene in his home town, but a desire to get to bed before 2am and a late- developing respect for protecting what hearing he has left has led him to currently work primarily in capturing candid photos from the built and natural world. His photographs have been exhibited at Owens Art Gallery and his first solo show at the Saint John Arts Centre featured industrial scenes and street photographs from Saint John, where he currently lives and works.
