News

The Redpath Museum at McGill University is hosting an international symposium on the critical threat to biodiversity: September 21st and 22nd 2019.

The committee invited Montréal sculptor Susan Stromberg to create a piece representing an endangered amphibian that would be featured at this conference. Other related sculptures she has created during her research will be part of a silent auction held to financially assist the scientists and the students involved during the conference.

Her study of endangered amphibians, specifically frogs, began a new theme in Stromberg’s repertoire and dramatically expanded her concern for the planet.

While the frog was being created, it looked just like a frog, so Stromberg adapted it to look more symbolic and more ‘artistic’ by putting an opening through the abdomen in the shape of a frog on each side and inserting a rare piece of Steuben crystal.

By lighting up the interior of her sculpted frog, Stromberg represented the importance of protection and ongoing reproduction of the species in the chain of life to prevent their extinction from our planet. And… therefore hopefully titled the creation: “Enlightenment”.

Carole Doucet

When words take shape

Delight in Discovery

Powerful and technically polished, Carole Doucet’s artworks are above all spiritual messengers on a humanitarian mission that far outreaches the art world from which they emerge.

Based on words of holistic wisdom, her works are constructed around a warm and mineral palette expressing the glowing spirit of the Psalms of David, the Song of Solomon, or the wise proverbs and quotes from which they emanate. ” The goal is to connect the emotion with the idea, freely, without worry about performance. is action will be extended through the spectator’s own perception, corresponding to his particular reality,” says the artist.

Jean-Claude Poitras

Above All, I am a Creator

On Exhibit

“Fashion becomes out of date, style never does!”Coco Chanel

It’s by drawing and then moulding paper shapes on mannequins that the fashion designer has been able to elaborate his ideas, materialize his visions and realize his wishes. An initial outline always serving as starting point, which is also the case in painting and sculpture.

Chalk lines or ink threads on fine China or Japan paper. Silhouetted figures in an amalgam of lines in motion that capture the eye. In drawing as in sculpture, the fashion designer flouts rules and conventions to rather dive into an abundance of knowledge acquired through cultural sharing. He is constantly seeking to further extend the boundaries of creativity. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more

Mireille Dubreuil

The eloquence of stones

Forms, Volume and space

Anyone probing Mireille Dubreuil’s artistic world is invited to partake in a fascinating and instructive experience. Her passion for minerals, her contagious smile, her sensitivity, all are ingredients to the recipe that shapes this exceptional being.

Having travelled the world for some 20 years, Mireille has long recognized that the richness of her existence is in great part inhe- rited from gifts by benevolent strangers who have also long known to decipher what stones of ages are saying.

Whether Magdalen Islands alabaster, Brazil steatite, Japan chlorite or Vermont marble, each piece of rock has its own lan- guage. If we listen these stones do speak to us, as sketched within the furrows of their veins souls have hidden their faces, sheltered from the eyes of merchants.

Inspired by native art, our favorite untamed artist also sculpts totems which are integral parts of his artistic process. His forthcoming solo exhibition will be held in 2017, from February 2 to 26, on the magnificent “Place des Citoyens” in Sainte-Adèle. An occasion not to be missed. Walls are at the ready to receive Ménard’s works. I will be there, will you?

When Forms are Shaped through Sentiment

Forms, Volume and Space

“We must content ourselves to discover and never try to explain.” Georges Braque.

Bronze is a traditional material of ancient heritage. It is a preferred medium of sculptors due to the feasibility of juxtaposing in one élan sparkling smooth surfaces and textured details of minute finesse. This being said, the present day volition to produce artworks in bronze is interesting as it testifies to how perfectly this material can be adapted to contemporary expressions.
