Grenfell Art Gallery is pleased to present Saltbox: Contemporary Arts Festival. Presented in conjunction with a series of generative panels, public forums, and events hosted at Grenfell Art Gallery and the wider Corner Brook area, the festival features leading contemporary performance artists from across the country including Nadège Grebmeier Forget, Hazel Meyer, Jerry Ropson, Adrian Stimson and the inaugural Saltbox writer-in-residence Amy Fung.

The festival’s name, Saltbox, references a form of vernacular architecture commonly associated with Newfoundland, reflecting the festival's intention to resonate with specificities of place. Curated by D’Arcy Wilson and Matthew Hills, Saltbox draws on regional cultural traditions of Newfoundland such as folk music, storytelling, and the theatrical rituals of mummering and "screeching in" to mine the experimental and speculative potential of performance and contemporary art in a context specific to rural Newfoundland.

In addition to scheduled performances and the associated exhibition, Saltbox will include programming such as Biscuit Box Cabaret for student and community artists, panels addressing issues relevant to visual arts and culture in Newfoundland. During the run of the Saltbox exhibition Grenfell Art Gallery will serve as a forum for public engagement events in partnership with Visual Artists Newfoundland & Labrador, AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador, Community Youth Network, and Community Mental Health Initiative.
