New partnership = great art!

BY NQ

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!

It’s getting colder out there, but luckily the Winter issue of NQ is now on-stands, ready to warm you up with a mug of hot cocoa.

The Southside Hills in History and Song

BY Matthew Hollett

I’M NOT SURE who first referred to them as the “Dear Old” Southside Hills, or if anyone still calls them that. Possibly the name went out of fashion when the huge oil tanks were built. But the nickname seems to have stuck for a while in the early 1900s, a curious term of affection for the imposing hillside that gives shape to St. John’s Harbour.
