Winter at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke: a whirlwind of activities!

2007-01-09, from Member
Sherbrooke, January 9th, 2007. Winter at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke is traditionally a whirlwind of activities: between the Soirée des Beaux-Arts and the exhibitions, the visitors as well as the Museum’s staff are kept, albeit nicely kept, busy! We would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the media for their generous support all along 2006 and to wish you a happy new year.

Until January 14: The Joy of Collecting. The Donation Jean de Margerie and Family
Until January 21: Quinze, Lucid and Lunatic

The Peter Winkworth Collection of of Canadiana. Early Impressions of Quebec (January 20 to March 18): An exhibition organised and toured by Library and Archives Canada, that shows 84 pieces from one of the most important Canadian collection of works on paper from the 19th century. These works, by artists such as James Peachey, George Heriot, Cornelius Krieghoff, Frances Anne Hopkins and Joseph Légaré provide the viewer with a variety of artistic styles, and a sweeping view of the era’s lively society and the region’s spectacular landscape. Peter Winkworth’s interest in depictions of the province of his birth is demonstrated through the beauty and the number of works he collected from this region. Are depicted: the St. Lawrence River and other waterways, Aboriginal and colonial conflicts, French settlers, fur traders, soldiers and Loyalists.

Works to be auctioned at Soirée des Beaux-Arts (January 27 to February 13): The Soirée des Beaux-Arts, the annual benefit auction organised by and for the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke, will take place this year on February 13, with Mr Michel Dallaire, Industrial Designer and Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas 1991 presiding. The 50 works to be auctioned are exhibited for visitors and eventual buyers.

Merci aux artistes ! (From March 24) : As per tradition, three artists who gave some pieces for the Soirée des Beaux-Arts exhibit their more recent works. A nice way to acknowledge their generosity end their talent.
