by Jennifer Wood

He integrates four components — Mi'kmaq petroglyphs and hieroglyphs, the ancient Mi'kmaq star, and various double-curve designs — into his work. His contemporaries, art enthusiasts and collectors from around the world know his work when they see it. The phrase “Oh, that's a Marcus Gosse" is telling of his success.

From Farm To Table

by James Mullinger 

James Mullinger meets internationally recognized chef Chris Aerni and one of Atlantic Canada's aquaculture pioneers, dr. Steven Backman to learn why they are passionate about Atlantic Canada and its locally farmed salmon. 

Atlantic Canada is known for its friendly people, beautiful views and world-class seafood. If there is one person in the region who is an undisputed expert on delicious seafood, it is Chris Aerni, the proprietor and owner of the Rossmount Inn in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. The inn boasts a restaurant that is widely regarded as one of the best in the world, thanks in no small part to Aerni’s unique and famous dishes using fresh premium Atlantic farmed salmon.

The Acadian Giant 

by Andrew Nickerson

Andrew Nickerson meets New Brunswick's Hollywood Star, Robert Maillet

Robert Maillet grew up in the small community of Sainte-Marie-de-Kent. The size of his hometown is the only thing small about him. Whether it be his sevenfoot frame and imposing physical stature or the large entertainment platforms he has been a part of for almost 25 years, he certainly does not fit the profile of the small-town Maritimes most of us think of. I was glad to have the opportunity to talk to him about having success in both professional wrestling and the acting career that followed.

Lesley Hampton's Wolfpack

by Jennifer Wood

How the Indigenous Designer is Leading the Shift towards Body Positivity and Inclusivity in the Canadian Fashion Industry 

At the age of 25, Newfoundland and Labrador– born Indigenous fashion designer Lesley Hampton has received more industry praise than most would earn in a lifetime. In four short years, her designs have been featured in major publications like Vogue and Glamour in the UK and Allure, to name but a few. Her collections have been cherished, worn and modelled by national and international public figures, artists and athletes, including Adrianne Haslet, Serena Ryder, Penny Oleksiak, Margaret Trudeau and Lainey Lui. A nomad by design, Hampton’s formative years were filled with experiences of relocating and adjusting to new places throughout the world — an offshoot of her father’s work in the mining industry. At an early age, she began to develop an appetite for and understanding of socio-cultural concepts, marking the genesis of what we appreciate in her clothing lines today.

by Coreen Hildebrand 

Born in 1988 and raised in Devon, a neighbourhood of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Brian Leonard knew he was a legend in the making at an early age.

Discovering Stable Island

by Jennifer Irving 

How five hundred wild horses attracted one of New Brunswick's top photographers to the Graveyard of the Atlantic. 

On Wednesday the runway flooded. Thursday, the winds were too high. By Friday it seemed my years-long dream of going to Sable Island to photograph its wild horse population would remain just that.

But then, good news. A man who had chartered a flight kindly let us hitch a ride. We arrived at a little terminal at Halifax airport at 7 a.m. and crammed ourselves into a tiny twin-prop plane.

The Authentic Glynn Williams

by Grant Heckman

How one man breathed new life into a small coastal town. 

Guysborough is a lazy little coastal hamlet, a clutch of mostly century-old frame buildings strung along Highway 16, which snakes southward and along the Nova Scotia coast from east of Antigonish. In the summer of 1987 Glynn Williams and his wife Charlene arrived at the village on a biking trip through the province and fell in love with the place. Born in Montreal and raised in Quebec and Ontario, he was working on Bay Street for an investment dealer but would move into other business areas in which he would prosper.
