This summer, I will be participating in the 25th edition of the Circuit des Arts Memphremagog. I truly enjoy meeting people that show up at my studio door during the Circuit. This event gives visitors the opportunity to admire and purchase artworks from professional artists, see their creative space and admire beautiful vistas along the road.
I hope to see you here. As usual, I will have two rooms full of paintings and many new works. Situated at 123 rue Du Lac des Sittelles, my Township studio will be open from 10 am until 5 pm starting July 21st to the 29th . There is also a collective exhibit at the Magog Visual Art Center, located at 61 Merry north in Magog where each artist is showing one piece of artwork representing his or her production. For more information, go on the Circuit's website: Just click here.
I am also participating in the 20th Edition of the Bromont en Art Symposium that takes place in the Old village of Bromont from August 24th to 26th from 10 am to 6pm.
The Lakeshore Association of Artists is holding its exhibition "Art by the Lake" on September 8th and 9th on the beautiful grounds of Stewart Hall. I will be there both days to greet you and will be presenting some new works. Everyone welcome!
I am very excited to announce that I am now an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists! This is opening new doors to be explored in 2018. The association has 2700 members across Canada.
A fun and worthy project I am getting involved in is the Silent Skies Collaborative Mural Project. This Artists For Conservation's first international collaborative mural project will feature all 678 endangered species of birds of the world. The installation will be the artistic centerpiece of the 27th International Ornithological Congress that will take place in Vancouver from August 19th to 26th.
The original artwork will then go on an international tour to select cultural/scientific venues.
I signed up to paint two species of birds: the Banasura laughingthrush (Trochalopteron jerdoni), endemic to Southern India and the Collared laughingthrush (Garrulax yersini), endemic to the Da Lat plateau in Vietnam. Both birds are endangered because of degradation and fragmentation of their habitat. All canvases will be sized 8 X 8 inches. For more details on this mural project, click here.
I just joined the Beaconsfield Artists Association. There is an exhibition this next October taking place at Centennial Hall from October 27th to 29th. Vernissage is on the Friday from 7 to 9 pm. Everyone welcome!
This fall, I am participating in three charitable events taking place in November. The first "Square" exhibition and sale will take place on November 11th from 11 am to 4 pm. Lunch is served, including soup, bread and dessert for $ 5. In addition all artists will offer 12 X 12 inches canvases at the same very advantageous price. It is a date at 232 Chemin de Senneville, in Senneville, to raise funds for the Old Brewery Mission in Montreal.
The second event is scheduled the same weekend on Sunday and I am happy to report that three of my paintings were selected to be sold during the Shield of Athena prestigious annual auction. This 23rd edition will take place at Le 1000 (1000 de la Gauchetière west) on November 12th starting at 2:30 pm. Monies collected will be used to help victims of family violence.
I also participate in the ninth edition of the exhibition "De la couleur contre la douleur", organized by the group Artistes de Coeur. A portion of the sales will go to the Federation of Women's Shelters. Each artist painted 12 to 20 canvases of uniform size 10 X 10 inches. The exhibition takes place from November 22nd to 26th 3 at the Multifunctional Center of St-Lambert located at 81 Hooper street. The vernissage is Wednesday evening (29) from 6 pm to 9 pm.

These are all wonderful opportunities to get an original work of art at a very reasonable price while helping these causes that hold us all to heart.
