From April 16th to July 6th, 2016, the Fore­man Art Gallery presents One-Eyed-Rab­bit, the first in­stall­ment of a three-year pro­gram ded­i­cated to reach­ing new au­di­ences. One-Eyed Rab­bit is one of few con­tem­po­rary art ex­hi­bi­tions de­signed for chil­dren.

In a play­ful at­mos­phere and through the story of a friendly rab­bit, Jonathan Plante in­vites young peo­ple to (re)dis­cover the mysteries of vis­ual per­cep­tion in a va­ri­ety of ways. The artist is of­fer­ing an an­i­mated video, orig­i­nal paint­ings, a gi­ant di­dac­tic book, and mir­ror anamor­phoses that will stim­u­late the imag­i­na­tion of lit­tle ones and grownups alike.

These un­ex­pected and in­ter­ac­tive aes­thetic ex­pe­ri­ences no­tably ad­dress ab­strac­tion, art his­tory and op­ti­cal il­lu­sions. Through the var­i­ous works, chil­dren are in­vited to dis­cover the mech­a­nisms of vi­sion and the role it plays in the arts, while de­vel­op­ing their imag­i­na­tion. Fi­nally, a chil­dren’s book based on the exhibition will al­low read­ers to re­visit the story of One-Eyed-Rab­bit for years to come (avail­able in French only). Open­ing re­cep­tion

The open­ing re­cep­tion will take place on Satur­day, April 16th 2016 from 11 am with the artist present.

re­gion of the East­ern Town­ships is well known as fer­tile ground for those who work in the vis­ual arts. The Musée des beaux-arts de Sher­brooke has drawn from this rich source of tal­ent to de­velop the eighth edi­tion of the Salon du print­emps des artistes des Can­tons-de-l’Est. This exhibition, opened on 9 April, pro­vides an ex­cep­tional show­case in which the pub­lic can ap­preci- ate the bril­liance of re­cent work by lo­cal artists. Tak­ing ac­count of the di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion of dis­ci­plines which make up the body of work of this not-to-be­missed spring “hap­pen­ing”, the Musée’s team pro­poses a re­flec­tion on the wide range of cur­rent prac­tice in the vis­ual arts. Draw­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, in­stal­la­tion, paint­ing, serig­ra­phy, and sound art sit side by side, in­spir­ing a di­a­logue which is sure to en­gage all view­ers. cont'd page 7
