Danielle and Chris­tiane Dion - Art Ex­hibit and Sale

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Up­lands Cul­tural and Her­itage Cen­tre once again hosts sis­ters Danielle and Chris­tiane Dion for a spring ex­hi­bi­tion. Their works will be on dis­play at the Up­lands gallery from April 3rd to May 29th, 2016.

The pub­lic is in­vited to come and meet the artists at the vernissage which will take place Sun­day, April 3rd, be­tween 2 and 4 pm, at 9 Speid Street in the Len­noxville bor­ough of Sher­brooke. The Dion sis­ters re­turn, in force! Danielle Dion, em­broi­derer, creates colour­ful tableaus that elicit an am­bi­ence, an emo­tion. With ac­com­plished fi­nesse, uti­liz­ing her threads, silk ap­pliqués and small trea­sures, she de­signs won­drous land­scapes, at times im­pres­sion­is­tic, at times pho­to­graphic.

Ce­ramist Chris­tiane Dion of­fers us an all-new col­lec­tion of unique in­di­vid­u­als brought to life from her vivid imag­i­na­tion. Her fir­ing tech­niques are equally var­ied: raku, smoker, elec­tri­cor wood-fired, they are all here.

In ad­di­tion, she also presents use­ful and at­trac­tive pieces for the ta­ble (bowls, salad servers, serv­ing plates,) unit­ing the plea­sure of the eye with that of the home. Ex­plor­ing a new pal­ette of colours, her works range from the very clas­si­cal to the more fan­tas­ti­cal.

Open­ing hours Up­lands is open from Wed­nes­day through Sun­day, 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free.
