Struts Gallery is pleased to announce our collaborative partnership with the Soley Cove Legacy Project and support of Fredericton based artist Gillian Dykeman’s residency at Soley Cove.

The Soley Legacy Project is a multidisciplinary outdoor arts event on the Bay of Fundy on August 21 - 22, 2021, which looks to honour the work and activities of Red Clay Farm and its creator, Tom Young. Tom was a longtime supporter of Struts Gallery and the regional arts community and we are honoured to make a small contribution to the creative activity he helped foster at Red Clay.
