St. Malachy’s: Paint It Forward

April - June 2019

-Over 100 paintings to be donated to public spaces in the Saint John Community every year!

We look forward to donating stretched canvases (16 X 20) and large MDF board acrylic paintings to several public spaces in Saint John annually such as Mental Health Clinic in the Mercantile building, the SJRH, schools, Romero House, the Food Basket, Carleton Kirk Complex,... First terms’ paintings are displayed in an art show at the West Branch Saint John Regional Library for November and December.Now we display the second terms’ images at the Imperial theatre (March, April, May and June) before we donate them.

We have donated over 1000 pieces of art from past shows to the community. This assignment has been in place since 2003.

Students love to make the world a more beautiful place!

Artist Submissions


Imperial Theatre Exhibition Committee (ITEC) has brought work from area artists to the patrons of Imperial Theatre and the Saint John arts community since 1994. With the number of live performances at the Theatre, exposure for exhibits is high, focused to an audience knowledgeable in art, as well as newcomers to visual art. During the summer months tourist traffic flows through the exhibition space during guided tours of the facility.

The exhibition space, located in the lobbies of Imperial Theatre, has space for a large collection. Exhibits must be comprised of a minimum of 15 pieces. With medium-sized pieces, (roughly 30” X 30”) more than twenty pieces can be accommodated.

The exhibitions operate on a rotating basis where each exhibit enjoys a term of roughly two months. Additionally, our website has a page dedicated to the ITEC displays, featuring an image of some of the art pieces, facilitating further exposure of the work.

ITEC receives, on an ongoing basis, proposals from artists to display their works. Each proposal is reviewed by ITEC, and considered for display.
