Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation
In Sheila’s spirit, we are working to make NB a province where artists are supported, understood and valued.
The Foundation cannot and does not seek to replace the responsibility of the federal and provincial governments, nor the work of public institutions or professionals who work in the visual arts sector. But we can and wish to be active partners in opening new avenues, exploring new initiatives and enriching existing resources.Louise Imbeault, President of the Board of Directors
