CURRENT EXHIBITION
GHISLAINE RIENDEAU
À l'origine

Traces de Lascaux XIII, Ghislaine Riendeau

From May 2 to August 15, 2021

A retired mathematics teacher, Ghislaine Riendeau traded in her chalk for paintbrushes around 15 years ago. Inspired by rock paintings and ancient civilizations, she shows us her creative universe by swinging between abstract and figurative art.

Her canvases, rendered in warm tones contrasted with ethereal white, evoke the art that decorates the walls of the famed Lascaux Caves. Depictions of human beings and animals are at the very heart of Riendeau’s paintings. Acrylic, gold leaf, impasto on a cement base and transparency give birth to (among other things) frolicking horses and iconic snow geese. The Stone Age and contemporary society come together in this exhibition, illustrating a universal language that offers an interpretation of the mystery of life – the very essence of humanity.   

LUC PELLETIER
À l'origine

Luc PelletierFrom May 2 to August 15, 2021

Quebec artist Luc Pelletier, whose sculptures are imbued with meaning and the kind of intangible details normally attributed to archeologists, has put together his latest show entitled Comme l’arbre, je suis. Comprised of seven series – Duo, Fleurs, Monolithe, At The Funeral, Inner Fire, Mono p’pa rental, Potential – the exhibits are a collection of woodcarvings, poems and installations (including a replica of the artist’s studio) inside and outside the Cultural Centre.

Pelletier skillfully highlights what we can learn from other living things, juxtaposing what is unique with what we have in common and showing ways in which human beings and nature compliment one another. His poetry dwells on brotherhood, suffering, serenity – personal and yet universal – and inevitably give one food for thought.

ZONÉ VERT (Christine Juillard and Michel Bachelet)
À l'origine

Christine Juillard et Michel BacheletFrom May 2 to August 15, 2021

Juillard is a visual arts teacher. Bachelet is a cabinetmaker specializing in decorative sculpture. Together, they form the Zoné Vert collective art intervention.

This Townships’ duo is particularly interested in the relationship between human beings and their environment, whether that be in urban or rural settings. Drawing inspiration from the physical appearance of a place and its history, they transform the scene by interpreting it through their poetic eyes, designing installations with natural materials.   

Memory, imagination, texture, perspective and the play of light and shadow all come together in one stunning piece of art – creating a space that is not just pleasing to the eye but also invites the viewer to reflect on the ways in which mankind has impacted the environment.   

Be prepared to be totally captivated by this immersive experience that marries nature with culture…
