Guy Duguay (1955-1996)

Guy Duguay was born in Dieppe, New Brunswick in 1955. In 1978, he earned a bachelor of visual arts with a major in ceramics and minor in sculpture from Université de Moncton. Guy Duguay, painter, artist, sculptor, potter, ceramist, engraver and graphic designer, died of AIDS in June 1996.

A versatile and improvisational artist, he mastered a variety of techniques and was fascinated with technology. He had a determination to change styles, materials and forms of expression, like a chameleon. In his work, Guy Duguay projects the ephemeral nature of life-fleeting but rich in colour, movement, sensual delight and humour.

His works are found in many public and private collections, including the Collection du 50e de la Fédération des Caisses populaires acadiennes, which features La fondation de l'Acadie, 1604-1605, the Canada Art Bank, the New Brunswick Art Bank, the Loto-Québec collection, the Galerie d'art de l'Université de Moncton and the art gallery of the Toronto-Dominion Bank. He also received a grant from the Canada Council in 1993 and from the province of New Brunswick in 1992.

Miller Brittain was an outstanding draughtsman, a painter, watercolourist and muralist. He was one of the few Canadian artists creating social satire in the 1930s; his crowded scenes of everyday life reflect a sympathy for humanity and an ability to express character through gesture.
Brittain was a founding member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and a member of the Canadian Society of Graphic Artists and Contemporary Arts Society. Among his honours was the Canadian Centennial Medal, awarded posthumously.
