Like the trees that communicate with each other through a network of roots, the artists of the Circuit des Arts Memphrémagog 2018 want to establish more communication with those around us.

Art plays an important role in our society and we want to stand out from the multitude of symposiums offered. The rigor of the Circuit des Arts to make a selection of professional artists and craftspeople is one of the characteristics that distinguish the quality of our products.

We are professional artists and craftsmen who work all year long. From this exhibition off circuit, we want to make our products known beyond a single summer period.

We invite you to the exhibition ARTborescence to be held from November 7 to December 21, 2018 at the Visual Arts Center of Magog.

The opening will be on Thursday November 8th from 5pm to 7pm. All are welcome!

Since last Saturday, the Circuit des Arts Memphremagog event has been taking place and my studio-gallery has been opened to all that show up at my door up until 5pm this afternoon. Today is the last day and as this exhibit is ending, I though I would share a few photos of my paintings set up in two rooms of my home.

 

Weather-wise, the week was eventful, with strong rain storms and hot sun, a mix of everything. Today for the last day, all is quiet, sunny and cool.

 

I always enjoy that event that puts viewers directly in front of my art without any distractions and helps them understand what is behind it, the motivation for creating it, the difficulties and joys encountered during the development of each painting.

 

For me, there is nothing like direct contact and conversation with the viewer. This exchange is enriching on both sides and more interesting than during a group exhibit or a symposium where the person is trying to see as much as they can in a very short time.

 

This was a wonderful 9 days and I feel I learned a lot about art lovers and their needs and expectations.

 

A big THANK YOU to everyone who visited me!

From November 22nd to 26th 2017, a unique exhibition and sale of artworks, unique called De la couleur contre la douleur (Color against suffering) will be held at the St-Lambert Multifunctional Center (81, ave. Hooper, St-Lambert). For its ninth edition, 39 artists will present more than 500 original paintings, all of the same dimensions (10 in x 10 in) and sold at the unique price of 100$ (cash only). This activity will be held within the framework of the 2017 campaign of twelve days for the elimination of violence against women that takes place every year. Part of the sales will be donated to the Fédération des maisons d’hébergement pour femmes (FMHF), that regroups 36 women shelters for those dealing with multiple social issues.

This exhibition and sale is organised by the group Artistes de cœur, made up of about forty selected artists, which I am part of, and mainly coming from the Monteregie area but also from Montreal, Quebec, Sherbrooke and Lanaudiere areas. We wish, with this exhibition, to promote engaged art by making accessible artworks from artists painters to a large public, and also support women and children that live with violence and find refuge in a women’s shelter.

The opening will take place on November 22nd from 6 pm to 9 pm and I will be showing 16 paintings during this unique event of special size, special price, special cause. Why not get a few as gifts or to make an arrangement on one of your walls?

Please forward this invitation to your family and friends.

I hope to see you there on November 22nd!

Suzanne

In between working on the 10 X 10 series, I also completed another two square paintings, these being 12 X 12 for one special exhibit: “Square” which will take place on November 11th, details below. The last two were painted on wood which presented another challenge. Even after two coats of gesso, I found the paint was still soaking right in and I had to rework the colors in order to soften them some.

Here they are along with the invitation:

This is an invitation to come and admire the works of close to 40 professional artists, members of the Lakeshore Association of Artists, on the shore of Lake St-Louis during the week-end of September 10th and 11th, 2016 during the “Art by the lake” event.

2016-sh-belair

I will be happy to welcome you on the beautiful site that is Stewart Hall, where I will be exhibiting some new 2016 works as well as other favourites. My site # 10 is located on the lower part of the grounds, near the parking area.

A portion of sales will go to On Rock Community Services and Food Bank

 

The show still goes on even if it rains. The exhibit will then take place inside instead of outside.

 

I will be showing my new forests collection and new canvases of my « Traces » series.
