see Dreaming in Glass
Studio Georgeville is pleased to present an exciting exhibition of glass sculptures by contemporary Quebec artists. Valerie Paquin, of Espace VERRE, and Elsie Sullivan, a Friend of Studio Georgeville, have co-curated the show. The artists taking part in the exhibition are: Catherine Benoit, Maryse Chartrand, David Frigon-Lavoie, Jean-Marie Giguère, David James, Lisanne Lachance, Gilles Payette, Jean-Simon Trottier and Vanessa Yanow.
Glass has been used for centuries for functional objects and for decorative pieces. But it has only been in the last fifty years that glass work has evolved into an art form that transcends the merely decorative. The artists who are represented in the Studio Georgeville exhibition have used glass as an artistic medium in striking new ways, initiating viewers into the fascinating world of contemporary studio glass.
The vernissage will be held this Saturday, October 11th, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. The exhibition will run from October 7th to November 9th, 2014. For more information call 819 843-9992.
