Lo­cal car show at­tracts film crew

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

TheS­tanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre (SEC) didn’t just at­tract a big crowd for their third car show which is free for spec­ta­tors; they even at­tracted a film crew from the Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel who came down to Stanstead from Mon­treal to film the event’s Smoke Show. “They found our video on YouTube and de­cided to come and film the show. It was pretty cool,” said Nick­o­las wood, one of the or­ga­niz­ers of the event.

There were about fifty cars, mod­i­fied and an­tique, at the event, some from as far away as Mon­treal and Trois Rivieres. “There was a steady flow of vis­i­tors and we were very busy in the kitchen. It was a great fam­ily event,” said Mr. Wood.

A corn roast fundraiser was also held dur­ing the event to raise money for the Stanstead Fire Depart­ment who had to be on hand be­cause of the Smoke show.

“We’ll be or­ga­niz­ing another car show for next year, but it will be dif­fer­ent and big­ger,” promised Mr. Wood. Next ac­tiv­ity up for the Stanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre, which or­ga­niz­ers are al­ready work­ing on, is a car rally to be held on Septem­ber 27th.

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion “Ton lo­cal” from the artist Jean-Michel Cor­reia from the 14th of Septem­ber to the 2nd of Novem­ber 2014. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 14th of Septem­ber at 2pm. The pub­lic is cor­dially in­vited.

Jean-Michel Cor­reia’s artis­tic work keeps a con­cep­tual and for­mal bond by way of paint­ing, sculpt­ing and ar­chi­tec­ture. The ex­hibit “Ton lo­cal” ma­te­ri­al­izes a project of Jean Michel Cor­reia where the artist ini­ti­ates a di­a­logue be­tween the Nor­ton Cas­tle’s ar­chi­tec­ture and its pic­to­rial com­po­si­tions. “Ton lo­cal” is a con­tin­u­a­tion of “Mod­u­la­tion II “or « Le Mo­du­lor “(a unit of mea­sure), like that of “le Jeu des Pan­neaux” by Le Cor­bus­ier. It is with this guide that Cor­reia may paint freely: stack­ing his col­ors with an ur­gency to scratch, sand, scrub, scrape or score the sur­faces in this in­evitable con­flict be­tween the sanc­tity of a code and the ex­pres­sion­ism of the con­tents. It is be­tween doc­trine and chance that the artist may find his equi­lib­rium. Born in 1958, Jean-Michel Cor­reia lives in Magog (Canada). Visual artist for more than 40 years, he stud­ied at « l’École supérieure des beaux-arts” of Di­jon as well as “l’École na­tionale d’ar­chi­tec­ture” of Paris-la Vil­lette in France. PhD stu­dent in arts at the UQAM, he is also co-owner and man­ager of the “Ga­lerie du ThéâtreM­a­gog-Art con­tem­po­rain” since 2012.
