see Dream­ing in Glass

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
