Smith, Arnold

Smith, Arnold

The Connector
Profile by Jane Ledwell

With roots in Pleasant Valley that go back to 1780, Arnold Smith can stand on a hill and in one direction see where his father was born; in another, where his mother was born. He can point to the home places of four grandparents, all eight great-grandparents, “and a good part,” he says, of his 16 great-great-grandparents. “When this side married that side, then

Martin, Derek

Reel to Reel
by Jane Ledwell

In the lobby of City Cinema, the perforated edges of a film glide through Derek Martin’s fingers. He is spooling film from the large reel used in the projector booth onto smaller reels, to be shipped by bus to its next showing. In 18 years running City Cinema, hundreds of films have passed through Derek’s fingers in this physical, painstaking process that is fast

Putnam, Anne

The Theatre of Life
Profile by Jane Ledwell

It is twilight on the south shore when I pull up past the for sale sign at Anne Putnam’s house. The house is, indeed, for sale and only half full, leaving room for rehearsal spaces for The Attic, the Pearls, and Three Fine Girls, being created by a collective of five women. Anne is a stage manager of renown, and she is stage manager for The Attic, but,

Opening Doorsa
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I feel very fortunate that I do enjoy performing so many types of music, and so many genres and instruments,” says Christine Anderson Gallant. By that measure of fortune, she’s a rich woman. In addition to her work as Executive Director at the Indian River Festival, as Music Director at Trinity United Church, and as a parent of five grown or growing children,

McCarville, B.J.

Power to the People
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Visual artist and educator B.J. McCarville has been home on PEI less than a year since living “away” and studying studio arts and education, and the comment she hears most is, “I didn’t know you were into art.” Now her mission as an arts educator at Confederation Centre Art Gallery is to engage people with art in life-altering ways—whether they know what

Deighan, Pat

Getting Along Great
Profile by Jane Ledwell

He’s been a Strawberry, had Eyes for Telescopes, been an Orb Weaver, and has hit roads with In-Flight Safety, but summer finds Island musician Pat Deighan at home behind the counter at Back Alley Music flogging other people’s CDs and vinyl in the last remaining music store in Charlottetown.

“I feel like a bartender here, except I’m not selling alcohol,”

Davis, Tanya

The Soul of a Poet
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I dove into the ocean today,” says a wide-eyed Tanya Davis on an unseasonal, chilly June Wednesday when the Halifax-based poet and musician is visiting her home province to perform. “It was like washing the winter off, or like summer joined winter on my skin.”

Ask anything of Tanya, and art happens—language with the rhythm of music, personal revelation

Wendt, Pan

Wendt, Pan

Creative Change
Profile by Jane Ledwell

When I meet Pan Wendt at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, kids are playing in the concourse outside Mavor’s Bistro, poking at glass display cases for visual art exhibitions. “As a kid,” Pan remembers, “I was in here all the time, and in some senses it was just the place where my dad [Konrad Wendt] worked. I had no idea of its place in the community.”
