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
