We are pleased to announce Bonavista Biennale 2017, a contemporary visual art exhibition launching this summer on the Bonavista Peninsula. Curators Catherine Beaudette and Patricia Grattan bring together works by 25 leading Newfoundland and other Canadian artists for Canada’s 150th anniversary. Presented in non-gallery sites (micro-brewery, fishstore, old schoolhouse, seal plant, beach, etc) the Biennale promises a unique encounter with this spectacular area where history and traditional culture combine with art by both newer and established artists: Catherine Blackburn,  Marlene Creates, John Hartman, Iris Hauessler, Dil Hildebrand, Ned Pratt, Reinhard Reitzenstein and more.

A project of 2 Rooms Contemporary Art Projects, Bonavista Biennale 2017 is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Canada150 Fund, the Newfoundland Arts Council and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Fishers Loft, corporate sponsors, local businesses and individual donors.  Bonavista Biennale 2017 has been selected as one of Canadian Art magazine’s “20 Shows We Want to See In 2017.”
