Brown Bag Lunch Series

Dr. Graham Daborn speaking at a seminarEvery week, we invite ALL members and members of our local community to join us for a free, casual lunchtime learning session.

Brown Bag Lunches are meant to offer you a slice of life while you enjoy a slice of your meal. We cover topics both big and small in scope, from local to international, and from arts to sciences. We aim to offer lively talks, from engaging speakers, that anyone in the audience can enjoy. And yes, many members do actually bring their lunch to eat during the presentation.

We meet every Thursday at noon in Seminary House, Room 229 (main level). Alternate locations are noted in the schedule.


This Week's Topic

12:00pm - 1:00pm


Seminary House, Room 229

Session Title:

Journey into the Artist Life

Guest Speaker:

Jean Leung



Each person is multi-faceted. Some of those facets, we seldom share, perhaps because people seldom ask to see that side. Today I will share my journey to becoming an artist. I know that I am on the right pathway when I become enlivened by the pursuit of a good painting. Let me tell you how I began, where I have been, and where I want to go into the future as an artist. I will share some of my work and tell you some of my challenges as an artist. I look forward to answering your questions. Who knows... maybe you will join me on an artist's journey.



Jean Leung makes her home in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia. She paints using the difficult medium of watercolor. She is inspired by the beauty of field, forest, and family. She has explored Black River Lake for the last 40 years by canoe and many of her painting reflect this unique viewpoint. Jean has exhibited her paintings in more than 20 group shows and 10 solo shows.
