Arrive early or linger afterwards and take a stroll through Mavor’s Restaurant, which is full of Burke’s figurative paintings, all featuring local residents. Do you recognize anyone you know?

Kevin Rice, current director of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery describes Burke as “One of the Island’s most significant painters ever. Burke pursued his long interest in expressive figurative painting with passion and commitment. Brian was an artist who inspired a generation with his body of work, and for making his way in the world as a painter and musician.”

Burke was born in Charlottetown and studied design at Holland College and fine art at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts since 2003, Burke’s work has been shown in private and public galleries in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.

Catherine Hennessey is the driving force behind the Circle Around Centre Luncheon Series. A portion of each ticket purchased will be donated to The Circle Around the Centre Fund of the Confederation Centre of the Arts Foundation which commemorates and celebrates individuals and events that have a special significance to the Centre.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
