Wildlife photojournalist Bob Belliveau-Ferrin Lemieux invites you to attend his solo exhibition and virtual tour of North America’s most important migratory bird flyway; the Acadian Peninsula of New Brunswick, Canada.
Bob is the featured nature and wildlife artist, showcasing the Acadian Peninsula, the Acadian culture, her tragic history, and her most important resource, the warmth and beauty of her people. The solo exhibition will be open to the public during the World Congress of Acadians, in the Acadian Peninsula, of Northern New Brunswick; August 8th—23rd.
The Acadian Peninsula stretches from Neguac to the south east along the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Grande Anse, to the west along New Brunswick’s most picturesque shoreline, the Baie-des-Chaleurs.
The honor of presenting the fruits of his six-year odyssey of capturing and documenting the migrating shorebirds of the region has been bestowed upon him by the organizers of the 2009 world-wide reunion of America’s first permanent, European, settlers.
The Expo d’un Belliveau, “La vie côtière acadienne en images / The Acadian coastal life in images” features more than 100 images of the region her people, her migrating shorebird visitors and a history of the Acadian people. Bob has also prepared a dynamic bilingual Power Point Program, to run throughout the day along with the exhibition.
You will not only share in the history and life in Acadie through the eyes of the artist but he is sure to regale you with stories of how he captured each image, its content, its subject the interaction between photographer and subject and the “laugh-a-day” antics of his constant companion Jack…his precocious Chichauaha.
The six day exhibition, the first of its kind for the region is assured to be an educational and entertaining success filled with the who’s who of naturalists and Acadians alike. 150,000 Acadians and their friends and families are expected to converge on the region during their homecoming. Although the exhibition is open to the public, free of charge, Nature-n-Focus and the exhibit organizers have extended 3,000 invitations to Acadians across the world to attend the noted nature and wildlife icons presentation.
The exhibition at the City Hall in Bas-Caraquet is open daily 10 A.M.—9:00 P.M. with Bob on hand to answer your questions and share the beauty he discovered while interacting with all residents of the Peninsula in what the locals call, Paradise.
