Tous En­sem­ble and Ja­son Kr­pan at Stu­dio Ge­orgeville

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

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.
