Merci aux artistes, the 2007 edition

2007-03-13, from Member
Sherbrooke, March 13th, 2007 - The Soirée des Beaux-Arts, which was held on February 13th last, was a huge success. The event was presided over by Mr. Michel Dallaire RCA, industrial designer, with numerous artists, collectors, art lovers, business people and professionals attending. Gallery owner Bertrand La Palme auctioned 56 works from regional artists and art collectors. The Soirée gathered a record $56,650 for the Museum’s activities. To thank the artists who donated a work, three names were drawn. Elmyna Bouchard, Sylvain Grondin and Yong Sook Kim Lambert were thus invited to exhibit their works in the context of the Merci aux artistes, 2007 edition. Ms Bouchard, who is busy with two other exhibitions, had to decline our invitation. The vernissage will be held on Saturday, March 24th at 5 p.m. The exhibition runs from March 24 to May 13.

Sylvain Grondin : Born in Sherbrooke in 1960, M. Grondin is a professional chef, and for the last 18 years a self-taught painter. He has participated in a variety of workshop training programmes, and has shown in a number of exhibitions in Québec. His pieces can be found in several private collections, as well as in that of Bishop’s University. “In my work, I want to communicate a renewed vision of nature. By combining the beauty of the wild with abstract elements, I can unveil my emotions and the life around me. The painting, evoking my subconscious, invites you to capture the present moment, the elusive reflection. I hope only to convey the essential: emotion.” Sylvain Grondin is associated with the ArtAzo Gallery on Wellington Street.

Yong Sook Kim Lambert : “I have always been fascinated by the human being, and I try to express my thoughts and feelings in an autobiographical manner as a way of establishing my identity. The mother of two children, born in Korea but now living in Magog and the United States, I attempt to reconcile everything through art by facing the challenge of capturing the essential through simplicity. Thus I combine figurative and abstract environments through the interaction of the figurative form with the abstract use of colour.” Ms. Lambert was born into a South Korean family of 10 children, in 1962. She grew up in the capital, where from a very young age she showed an aptitude for drawing. Elected to the Canadian Society of Watercolorists in 1997, Yong Sook Kim Lambert has received various awards and distinctions, in particular from the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society. Her works can be found in several collections, including those of the Canadian House of Commons, the Canadian Museum of Civilisation, Loto-Québec, and the Museum of the Southern Alleghenies in Pennsylvania, USA.
