Beaulne Mu­seum Pre­sents

Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion « Femmes, fleurs et oiseaux » by the artist Cather­ine Lemieux from the 11th of May to the 29th of June 2014. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 18th of May at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

The ex­hibit, « Femmes, fleurs et oiseaux » is at its sec­ond show­ing. Like a ser­pent, it has shed its skin. New draw­ings and a dif­fer­ent ap­proach in the im­ages are sim­i­lar but at the same time, re­newed. Some cre­ations of the past sur­vived. Their sym­bolic man­ner and their con­trolled lines re­mind us of il­lus­tra­tions from chil­dren’s books. The New Year barely started, took the artist to­wards a new ap­proach. The sto­ries are no longer il­lus­trated in her head. Her cre­ations have be­come a cry; a cry of anger, a cry of in­domitable love. Her cre­ations are now a way of ex­pres­sion for what can­not be said and what mod­esty does not al­low to be writ­ten.

When she was a child, her fa­ther gave her his old box of “pris­ma­col­ors” crayons. She played around with the col­ors, she cre­ated spi­rals, drops and cir­cles and some­times, a face or a flower would ap­pear. He then taught her how to do shades on ap­ples, on roses and on hands. Later on, she de­cided to go to col­lege with the in­ten­tion of be­com­ing an

artist. But un­for­tu­nately or maybe, luck­ily, she was self-taught and undis­ci­plined. She dropped out and did what she loved best, us­ing colored crayons and wa­ter col­ors. To­day, she pre­sents her sec­ond ex­hibit, her con­fes­sion on paper, the re­flec­tion in her heart, of “Femmes, fleurs et oiseaux”. Cather­ine Lemieux’s work is on dis­play at the Beaulne un­til June 29th.
