Cats and birds in­spire art

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Water­ville

Look­ing­for an in­ter­est­ing cul­tural event this Fri­day night ? Head down to the Gallery “Café Au Vieux Pres­bytère “, 350 Comp­ton Street East, in Water­ville. Start­ing at 5:30 p.m. till 6:30 p.m., you can ad­mire the art works, fol­lowed at 7:00 p.m. by a “Ta­ble d’Hôte” veg­e­tar­ian meal by reser­va­tion only.

The Gallery “Café Au Vieux Pres­bytère” is pre­sent­ing “Le chat et l’oiseau”, an ex­hibit by vis­ual artist Brigitte Blanchet, from Fri­day, April 8th (open­ing night vernissage) un­til May 8th, 2011.

Spring is in the air and also in the re­cent art works by vis­ual artist Brigitte Blanchet. She cap­ti­vates a vis­ual di­a­logue be­tween her cat as her live model, in pen and ink draw­ings and mixed me­dia paint­ings. Dur­ing a short stay in France, she was in­spired af­ter tak­ing a cre­ative work­shop on wire sculp­tures. In her ex­hibit, we can al­most hear chirp­ing sounds from her lin­ear wire sculp­tured birds, peek­ing from atop the edge of cho­sen cat paint­ings.

We can feel a child­like cu­rios­ity spring­ing from her artis­tic pal­ette!
