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!

Paying Ode to Funambulists

BY Prajwala Dixit

“Do you remember everything I’ve told you?” I ask my fiancé for the millionth time. We are in the lobby of a Quality Inn near Pearson International. Four floors up, my parents await to meet their daughter and future son-in-law. This is the first time my Indian and Canadian realms will come face to face.

Sending Up Kites

BY Matthew Hollett

NEWFOUNDLAND QUARTERLY was founded in 1901, the same year Marconi flew a 500-foot kite on Signal Hill and intercepted the first trans-Atlantic wireless transmission. The second-oldest magazine in Canada, NQ began as “a literary magazine of interest to Newfoundlanders at home and abroad,” which is not far off the way it describes itself today, as “a cultural journal of Newfoundland and Labrador.” That’s a remarkable persistency of purpose over 116 years.
