What is a Curator?
Borrowed from Latin cūrātor “one who looks after, superintendent, guardian,” from cūrāre “to watch over, attend” + -tor, agent suffix. Curators are responsible for assembling, cataloging, managing, and presenting/displaying artistic and cultural collections.
And with that, we continue our on-going series of incredible EAST coast collections – each with a specific theme – always with the goal of showcasing what Atlantic Canada has to offer.
We’ll put the call out and ask you to tag us when you’ve got something to add to our collection – we’ll share everything, feature our favourites and with your help we’ll show the world just how much there is to love here on Canada’s East Coast!
It’s October – so we’re collecting PUMPKINS!
And oh my gosh, do we love that squash, so YES we can’t wait for you to share your pictures of the awesomely autumnal produce captured from patches to porches throughout New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island too.
But we pumpkin-peekers won’t stop there – we want to see it all – from jewelry and paintings, plates to pottery to sweet signs and well – if it incorporates a pumpkin – we’d be pumped to include it in our collection!
We’ll get it started with these incredible creations from Marlene Veinotte of Yarns at Play in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia – fall-infused fibre art of the most delightful kind.
And how about this truly cool pumpkin angel created by Cape Breton’s Patrick Austin aka @austin_tatiously, and these positively delicious pumpkins from the creators of yummy at Newfoundland Chocolate Company.
Indeed – we’re patrolling for pumpkins… so please Show us Yours!!!
