An Artist’s Welcome

Portrait 

Pursuant to the editorial in this fall issue of your Magazin’Art, here is an innovative business model for the marketing of artworks by the artists themselves. An excellent initiative that avoids falling under the yoke of excessively greedy gallery owners… and independents.

Not a “cooperative gallery” with shares, neither a “community gallery”, but a collective of nine artists with premises on a busy street via a unique exhibition space and a profusion of planned travelling shows, events and workshops. A full agenda, indeed! The address: 113 Saint-Paul Street in Québec City. The welcome is warm and unpretentious. A friendly and knowledgeable welcome since it is extended by one of the gallery artists.

Redolent Paintings

Ilinca Ghibu

Art in a Feminine Perspective

Her paintings are like welcome breaths of fresh air, beneficial and appeasing. She possesses the unusual experience of an immigrant who views and observes, takes root and expresses herself. She benefits from a Romanian cultural heritage as well as an important Québécois cultural baggage. Her  name: Ilinca Ghibu, a lawyer at the Justice Department in Ottawa, who, since 2012, has devoted herself to the experience of art by taking up her brushes to paint on a daily basis. In the practice of art, down times can be tragic for the artist, but are easily offset by heights brought about by wonderful unexpected and inexplicable events. Welcome to the universe of someone who knows.  Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.
