TheMusée des beauxarts de Sher­brooke will cel­e­brate the Journées de la Cul­ture Sun­day 29 Septem­ber, open­ing its doors to vis­i­tors free of charge, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Vis­i­tors will dis­cover with plea­sure the works of two ma­jor Que­bec artists: painters Peter Krausz and Marc-Aurèle Fortin, as well as works from the mu­seum’s col­lec­tion, Spa­ces and Land­scapes. There will be guided tours of the exhibitions, in French, at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.

In 1969, Peter Krausz, then in his early twen­ties, se­cretly left his na­tive Ru­ma­nia. For more than forty years, the flight to­wards the un­known has con­tin­ued to nour­ish the re­flec­tions of the artist. The land­scapes which in­spire him are those marked by his­tory, con­flict, and war. He trans­forms and el­e­vates them, turn­ing them into spa­ces halfway be­tween the real and the imag­i­nary. His paint­ing is colour­ful

Marc-Aurele Fortin painted ru­ral and marine scenes in the early 1900’s.
