Artist Bar­bara Sala at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Museum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hibit “Contes du coeur mag­ique” by the artist Bar­bara Sala from the 8th of May to the 3rd of July 2016. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 15th of May at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

« When you en­ter the uni­verse of Bar­bara Sala’s cre­ations, Michel For­est writes; cu­ra­tor of the In­ter­na­tional Museum of naïve art in Ma­gog; our first im­pres­sion might be to feel as if you are in a child’s world. Though, this im­pres­sion can be de­cep­tive be­cause Bar­bara Sale’s cre­ations are not child­like at all. It is an adult’s uni­verse with adult themes with con­tin­u­ing stages to self-anal­y­sis. A phase rich in sym­bols and re­al­i­ties, which she chooses heart­edly to share with you.”

With a brush and can­vas, she en­ters the mag­i­cal king­dom of her heart. Through sym­bols and ideas, she tells sto­ries with­out re­ally know­ing the sto­ry­lines. Her teach­ing tool is her mys­te­ri­ous and dream­like qual­ity with a child­like style be­ing the ba­sic con­tent of her life and her views to­wards the world.

Born in Ger­many and world trav­eler, Bar­bara Sala moved to Quebec, Mon­treal in 1974. Since1987, Bar­bara has pre­sented over fif­teen solo ex­hibits through­out Quebec. She has also par­tic­i­pated in many group ex­hibits in Quebec, in the United States, in Poland, in France, in Italy, in Tu­nisia, in Is­rael and in Spain.

She has been awarded many pres­ti­gious prizes for her cre­ations which can be found in many mu­se­ums and pri­vate col­lec­tions here and else­where as well as nu­mer­ous pub­li­ca­tions.
