Coat­i­cook Mu­seum Presents

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion «Mur­mure sylvestre » by the artist Manon Potvin from the 2nd of May to the 10th of June 2015. The grand open­ing will be held on Satur­day the 2nd of May at 2 pm. The public and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

The art of Manon Potvin takes place in the wake of sur­re­al­ists and more so with an al­le­gor­i­cal re­al­is­tic ap­proach. Drawn from a fan­tas­tic imag­i­na­tion, the artist in­vites us into her world full of trees, wa­ter, clouds, light, and land­scapes full of life and seren­ity. In the ab­sence of any con­trol over rea­son, out­side of any ac­tual func­tion­ing thoughts, she lets us en­ter into her pri­vate world.

Imag­i­na­tion, in­spi­ra­tion and in­tu­ition gen­tly guide the artist to­wards a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of life. She ex­presses her­self with bits and pieces of com­pre­hen­sion as well as an over­flow of won­der. Her cre­ations will make you smile and re­flect but mostly ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty in life.

Manon Potvin is orig­i­nally from Mon­treal but now re­sides in Ma­gog. Self-taught, she has been paint­ing since 2001. She is a mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional Academy of Arts in Que­bec as well as a sig­na­tory of the Fig­u­ra­tive Arts In­sti­tute. She also re­ceived many hon­ors from pan­els and the public.
