Stanstead artist in Montreal ex­hibit

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Lo­cal artist Louisette Gau­thier-Mitchell is one of ten East­ern Town­ships artists be­ing fea­tured in the ex­hi­bi­tion La Vari­a­tion est la norme, a joint pre­sen­ta­tion be­tween the Ga­lerie d’art cul­turel de l’Univer­sité de Sher­brooke and the Mai­son de la cul­ture Fron­tenac where the event is tak­ing place from Oc­to­ber 21st to Novem­ber 29th.

The ti­tle of the ex­hibit was in­spired by the re­search of pa­le­on­tol­o­gist and author Stephen Jay Gould who be­lieved it was im­pos­si­ble to in­ter­pret the evo­lu­tion of a phe­nom­e­non with­out tak­ing into ac­count the range of its vari­a­tions. In his work, the author has in­vited his read­ers to re­nounce the tra­di­tional idea of dom­i­na­tion and learn to love pe­cu­liar­i­ties and ap­pre­ci­ate di­ver­sity. The artists in the ex­hi­bi­tion, who also in­clude singer Richard Seguin, are known for their au­then­tic re­search, sin­gu­lar­ity, in­tel­li­gence and the var­ied way in which they con­struct their work.

The Mai­son de la cul­ture Fron­tenac is lo­cated on On­tario Street East, in Montreal.
