New partnership = great art!

June 2018

We are so pleased to share a new partnership that we’ve cooked up with the visual art program at the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University in Corner Brook. From now on, we’ll be working together to showcase artwork from students and graduates in our print magazine and on NQonline.ca.

You can get your first look at some of the work in the our new Summer issue, out now. A drawing by Rachel Gilbert accompanies this month’s Aspects article, Mad Dogs and Irishmen. You’ll also see an illustration by Patricia Gora as part of Dave Quinton’s intriguing story of Eliza Downer’s sojourn from Fogo to Patagonia.

We can’t wait to see more from the artists at Grenfell Campus: it’s an opportunity for the students, and an honor for Newfoundland Quarterly!
