Tous Ensemble and Jason Krpan at Studio Georgeville
More than eight years ago, a group of local artists met to talk about their shared dream of opening a year-round art gallery in Georgeville. They formed an artists' cooperative and founded Studio Georgeville. The gallery has since grown into a flourishing cultural centre and has become integral to life in this picturesque lakeside village.
"We've had smooth sailing at times and rough sailing at times," Studio Georgeville president Louise Abbott says. "But we've always had tremendous community support, and we have a wonderful set of members." Appropriately enough, those members are holding an exhibition that shows their solidarity; the title is Tous ensemble—All Together.
The exhibition will run from September 13 to October 2 at Studio Georgeville, 20 carré Copp, in Georgeville. The vernissage will take place on Saturday, September 17, from 3 to 5 p.m.
On view will be drawings by Luc Olscamp; furniture by Niels Jensen; jewellery by Carla Straessle; paintings by Pamela Cartwright, Virginia Cope, Dominique Gagnon, and Agnes McKenna Power; papiers mâchés by Agnes McKenna Power; photographs by Louise Abbott, Niels Jensen, and Duff Armour; and sculptures by Mary Cartmel.
The vernissage on September 17 will be preceded by a timely monologue by well-known Georgeville satirist Jason Krpan—"How Donald Trump could have become a great president." Krpan will begin his performance at 2 p.m.
