Lightbox Exhibit launches in Downtown Charlottetown
Posted on 03/08/2024
Art lovers in the Capital can expect to see a bright and colourful downtown this spring as the City of Charlottetown launches Ensemble: Music and Sounds of the Island, an outdoor lightbox exhibit showcasing the artistic talent of 15 Island-based artists.

The exhibit features the work of Agate Hoffmann-Dousset, Andrew Lewis, Ashley Anne Clark, Duncan Brooks, Gloria Wooldridge, Jen DesRoche, Josiane Vlitos, Karen Gallant, Katelynn Hicks, Kels Smith, Kristen Campbell, Lindsey Ross, Omar Broderick, Patricia Bourque, and Sandra MacGillivray.

Inspired by the theme "Music and Sounds of the Island," the exhibit seeks to capture Prince Edward Island's rich auditory identity. From songbirds to whale songs and traditional fiddle music to indie rock, each artwork in Ensemble offers a unique visual interpretation of the region’s diverse soundscape.

The artworks will be displayed in lightboxes attached to lamp posts around the downtown area to help celebrate P.E.I. Music Week (March 6 to 10) and the 33rd annual East Coast Music Awards (May 1 to 5).

Several artists who contributed to the exhibit are Charlottetown residents, such as Gloria Wooldridge, who has painted professionally for the past seven years. Another artist, Omar Broderick, has spent several years contributing to the City’s artistic vision through photography, music and art. His piece, entitled ‘Crawfish Therapy,’ depicts Louisiana-based singer-songwriter Cedric Watson, whose musical style celebrates the cultural similarities between Acadian and Cajun cultures.

The exhibit runs from March 5 to May 6. Visit for more information on the exhibit and to view a map of the lightbox locations.
