Until 16 January 2011: Melissa Doherty. Survey

 

Melissa Doherty's works challenge the way we perceive landscapes. Instead of looking outward at deep, frontier space, as in the grand tradition of landscape painting, her paintings look down, or into, very shallow, introspective spaces. The aerial view reflects a notion of landscape where we are above it, increasingly unconnected and distanced from it, and often changing and rearranging it, as in an architectural model. Melissa Doherty graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo. She is one of 200 painters included in Carte Blanche Vol. 2: Painting, a showcase of the current state of painting in Canada, and was shortlisted in 2002 for the RBC New Canadian Painting Competition. A recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council, her work has been included in exhibitions at Queen's Park, the University of Toronto, Art Chicago, Scope Miami, and Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico City. Her work is represented in private and public collections in Canada and the U.S, including the Royal Bank of Canada, BMO, the FEMMARTE Collection, and the University of Toronto. Melissa was born in Chatham, Ontario and is based in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. The exhibition is organised by the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke.

 

Until 9 January 2011: Maurice Cullen and His Circle

 

The exhibition Maurice Cullen and His Circle provides a unique opportunity to see works by Maurice Cullen (1866–1934) together with those of some of his contemporaries and the future generation of artists he inspired. Comprising nearly forty oil paintings selected from the National Gallery of Canada's permanent collection of Canadian Art, the exhibition examines works by Cullen alongside those of his contemporaries, including such artists as James Wilson Morrice and William Brymner. The show also features works by artists whom Cullen was known to have influenced, including his stepson Robert Pilot and the then future member of the Group of Seven A.Y. Jackson. Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Maurice Cullen spent most of his adult life in Québec, where he began his artistic studies. In 1889 he was one of many aspiring young Canadian artists who left to study in Paris. Many of the works selected for this show have not been exhibited publicly for almost two decades. This project has been made possible in part through a grant from the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage.

 

Spaces and Landscapes: the Collection

 

Thanks to a grant from the Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine, the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke has been able to undertake the renewal of its permanent collection. The exhibition allows visitors to appreciate the evolution of landscape art over time, from the panoramic views of earlier centuries to the dynamic concepts of contemporary art, and including the more personal vision of naïve artists. Many important artists are represented here, including some from our region, and representatives of the next artistic generation. A special place is accorded to our own landscape painter, Frederick Simpson Coburn.
