Tim Hogan – Artist
Mr. Hogan was the first artist-in-residence at the newly expanded Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick (2017). His medium in a way is nature – porcupine quills, birch bark, sand and more – and his dominant theme is how humans are responsible for the space between Grandmother Moon and Mother Earth. The message is powerful on the human journey.
