Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is de­lighted to present the ex­hi­bi­tion « en tre sur d autres un ers by the artist Renée Morin from the 22nd of June to the 10th of Au­gust 2014. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 22nd of June at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

Renée Morin, a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary artist paints with acrylics and uses mixed tech­niques. Nu­meric im­pres­sion is also part of her work and she prefers stone and bronze for sculpt­ing.

Her sci­en­tific train­ing in mi­cro­bi­ol­ogy en­abled her to work with the in­fin­itely small to the in­fin­itely big. From MACRO to MI­CRO she meta­mor­phoses parts of flow­ers, fruits, pollen and micro­organ­isms within her ab­stract cre­ations which are full of col­ors and vi­brant tex­tures. She loves na­ture and the strength within these phe­nomenons which she in­ter­prets and trans­forms into her col­or­ful and promis­ing cre­ations.

Within her sculp­tures, na­ture’s strength is also present in an ab­stract way. One may find a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of pieces of life and the dif­fi­culty in es­tab­lish­ing a just bal­ance. Ev­ery­thing wa­vers be­tween equi­lib­rium and im­bal­ance, a theme which is re­cur­rent within her sculpted cre­ations. There­fore, in paint­ing, in sculpt­ing or in nu­meric im­pres­sion she priv­i­leges ab­stract cre­ations of par­al­lel worlds.

The ex­hibit con­tains more than thirty paint­ings and twenty sculp­tures.

For more than fif­teen years, she has par­tic­i­pated in many solo and col­lec­tive ex­hibits and has re­ceived nu­mer­ous hon­orific men­tions. Her cre­ations may be found in sev­eral pri­vate col­lec­tions.

The6th An­nual Piper Clas­sic Golf Tour­na­ment will be held on Satur­day, July 5th at the Milby Golf Club. The pop­u­lar event has raised around $35, 000 over its five year his­tory and looks to break the amount they raised last year.

The idea of the fundraiser orig­i­nated six years ago in mem­ory of John Haller who was a long time teacher and coach at Alexan­der Galt, but trag­i­cally lost his bat­tle with cancer. Mr. Haller was not only a great hus­band and fa­ther of three chil­dren (Anna, Jared and Erin), but a ded­i­cated teacher and coach that helped and in­spired hun­dreds of stu­dents.

The money raised helps sup­port all of the in­ter­scholas­tic pro­grams at Galt, such as uni­forms, trans­porta­tion, equip­ment, pho­tos and bur­saries. Four ma­jor ath­letic bur­saries are handed out each year from the Piper Clas­sic in hon­our of Mr. Haller. Jacki Lum­ley (Ella Hoy), Alex Mckin­ney Ther­rien (Reg New­ton),
