Gerard Collins-Saint John High School Mural-1973

Hello everyone!

Gerard Collins recently gave me 2 slides depicting a mural that he did on the back wall of the Cafeteria while attending Saint John High School (SJHS) in 1973.

Gerard shared me that the art teacher picked an artist to do a mural every year and in 1973 he was chosen by his teacher to create and display his work for two years. Herb Foley was the art teacher and in 1973 Gerard was 15 years young 😀.

Gerard and I both agreed that this may be of interest to some of his collectors. We have created limited addition print of 50 in total measuring
11 x 14 to be printed on archival paper.

They can be purchased at the studio for $110.00 (framed).

Please message us if interested!

As you can see, even at a young age, Gerard was interested in cityscapes, buildings and streets that makes our city so enchanting.

Gerard Collins

Hello Everyone,

A few years ago I commissioned a local photographer (Rob Roy) to capture Gerard Collins in his element. I thought I would share some pictures of him and his camp where so many masterpieces are created.

Gerard Collins is Saint Johns living Picasso! His artwork adorns so many walls (galleries, commercial spaces, private collections and the National Art Gallery of Canada to name a few).

Gerard Collins artwork appeals to so many people of all ages, he captures that magic in every painted scene. Whether its a landscape or portrait there is something magical and something for all in the art work of Gerard.

Miller Gore Brittain

A short film of the life and career of Miller Gore Brittain. Enjoy

Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, in 1912, he painted most of the time in or near that city. He served two tours as a bomb aimer in the Second World War, a copy of William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience tucked in his flack jacket on the run into Germany.Personal, social and religious upheavals were all reflected in his art, in aching, obsessive works that people didn't understand, and much of the time didn't buy, though now they are worth thousands. The film is a reconstruction of the life and career of this misunderstood Maritime painter.
