Hon­or­ing cul­tural sites

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

The Beaulne Mu­seum in Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion Émul­sion noc­turne, by artist San­dra Trem­blay, from 3 Fe­bru­ary to 31 March 2013. The vernissage will take place on Sun­day 3 Fe­bru­ary at 2 p.m. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

San­dra Trem­blay is from Lac-St-Jean. She com­pleted a BFA at Laval Univer­sity in 2002 and cur­rently spe­cial­izes in paint­ing and print­mak­ing. She is a Town­ship­per since 2007.

The main idea of the present ap­proach is based on a work ethic at­tempt­ing a re­flec­tion-aware­ness on the life­style of to­day’s so­ci­ety and con­sumerism (im­pact on poverty, the en­vi­ron­ment, women’s rights). The re­sult is il­lus­trated by the re­in­force­ment of cre­ation through art, a play­ful vi­sion of daily life in an ur­ban set­ting. It is a rec­on­cil­i­a­tion of the con­tem­po­rary hu­man be­ing with na­ture and its com­po­si­tion, its or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Émul­sion noc­turne

The paint­ings in the col­lec­tion have been cre­ated with the in­ten­tion of hon­or­ing th­ese cul­tural sites in the East­ern Town­ships, places that are mean­ing­ful to the type of artist she is. Th­ese vis­its to the mu­se­ums, the­atres, and events in con­stant evo­lu­tion and vi­brancy af­fected her. As ma­jor fig­ures in our cul­tural land­scape, their grandiose ar­chi­tec­ture re­flects the artis­tic past and present of this re­gion. A quick glance at the rail and tex­tile in­dus­tries re­veals a vast im­por­tance in the devel­op­ment of the East­ern Town­ships. Th­ese paint­ings were re­cently cre­ated in the sum­mer of 2011. This project earned her a schol­ar­ship from the Que­bec Arts Coun­cil and the Re­gional Con­fer­ence of Elected Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the East­ern Town­ships. She is thank­ful to th­ese two or­ga­ni­za­tions for their sup­port.
