Devine Architecture 

by James Mullinger

James Mullinger interviews Ontario-born, Quebec-trained and New York-career architect Sanaz Shirshekar on moving to New Brunswick and doing her most personal work to date. 

The Petitcodiac Baptist congregation has been a vital and vibrant part of this southern New Brunswick, Westmorland County community for 182 years. Built in 1879, its church building was a majestic example of Gothic Revival architecture. Originally built on Renfrew Street, it was relocated to the corner of Old Post Road and Renfrew Street in 1910, where it served as the very heart of congregational life for the people of this tight-knit community. Pastor David Woodworth, at the helm since July 2011, welcomed over 200 people to the Sunday-morning worship services. Even more people used the space for workshops, family gatherings, parties, classes and other vital activities.

The Fairytale of Ticklebelly Hill

by Morgan Leet

Atop a hill in southern New Brunswick sprawls scenic farmland. The red post-and-beam barn within the scene is 150 years old, still intact and true to its history but enhanced by modern touches.

It is surrounded by greenery and wildflowers — and salty air from the close-by ocean. Inside the barn the warm lighting, modern decor and statement chandelier all work to create a one-of-a-kind wedding venue, Ticklebelly Hill. Just a short drive away from the historic and popular tourist destination of Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, this magical venue is the brainchild of owner Sarah Conley.

B.J. Snowden: The New Brunswick Whistleblower

by Andrew McGilligan

How an African American woman from Massachusetts taught millions of Americans about the joys of New Brunswick, using only a keyboard.

She hated ballet.

That’s how one of the oddest pop cultural curios involving New Brunswick began.

Every year, on New Brunswick Day, a clip of musician B. J. Snowden performing her song “New Brunswick” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! makes its way around social media and gets liked and shared. “New Brunswick” has become a sort of unofficial cult theme song for the province.

Without any context, the clip from September 3, 2005 is a mixture of oddity, delight, fun and confusion.
