Gallery 78 is proud to be part of Atlantic Canada’s largest winter celebration, Fredericton’s own – FROSTival
with activities on January 19, 26 and February 2.

Friday, January 19, 3-6 pm

Mark your calendars for Gallery 78’s annual free Family Art Exploration on Friday, January 19 from 3-6 pm. This year’s hands-on activities will include creating sculptures and pottery out of clay with Matt Cripps, who is studying ceramics at NBCCD and making decorative art cards for Valentine’s Day with Nikki Thériault! We will also have an art history game and reading corner. Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while exploring this historic building and be inspired by the beautiful art on display. Fun for the whole family!

Friday, January 26, 7-9 pm

Beat the post-holiday blues and socialize with friends at Gallery 78 as we explore the world of Port. This special tasting event, hosted by Opimian (Canada’s largest non-profit wine-buying club), will introduce you to the varieties of port, without the commitment of buying a bottle. We will serve a dry white port, tawny, reserve and crusted port. Learn how to appreciate these fortified wines and enjoy some of the best chocolate treats Fredericton has to offer! This is a ticketed event. More information may be found here at the FROSTival website.

Friday, February 2, 5-8 pm

Head downtown to the heart of the city and stroll from gallery to gallery to enjoy the pleasures of visual art at the Gallery on Queen, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, the College of Craft and Design and Gallery 78. Besides a feast for the eyes, there will also be live entertainment featured at each venue. More details soon.
