The Originals | Les Originaux

[nggallery id=3]

Saint John is home to some of the nation’s finest and most celebrated artists, artisans, and arts volunteers – people whose passion and dedication have inspired our community, our nation, and the world.

In order to recognize and celebrate the importance of these individuals and organizations, a dedicated group of committee members, under the guidance of the Saint John Community Arts Board, has created what it hopes will be an annual or biennial event – ‘The Originals/Les Originaux’.

“Holy Cow you landed the mother of all fish!!  That was one heck of a show, more shimmer and shine that a school of blowfish on a tropical reef… I was so excited my dorsal fin was sticking straight up out of the water!! Thank you for your amazing work and for arranging for us to be part of it.

My family has been in New Brunswick since 1766 and I am about as proud a Saint Johner as you will meet but I was humbled by the beautiful way you showcased the awesome talent living among us.”  —Daryl Steeves

The Originals event was spectacular!!  Gary and I were quite literally speechless! Judith, you have given countless hours of your time and your touch was felt in every little aspect of the evening.  What a grand success!  The evening left me very proud to be a Saint Johner, surrounded by such talent.  The sense of community was very strong in the venue!  Judith, you made the night look effortless, the mark of a true master.
