Bonheur d’été 2009 exhibition

SHERBROOKE – For the tenth consecutive year, Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre is proud to present the group art show “Bonheur d’été”. The public is cordially invited to meet the artists and enjoy some light refreshments at the Vernissage on Sunday, June 7th from 2–4 p.m., at Uplands, 9 Speid Street in the borough of Lennoxville (Sherbrooke).

The summer 2009 edition of “Bonheur d’été” presents recent works produced in a variety of media by eight talented local artists:

Kasia Chelkowska, ceramist. “The figures that I create are also impregnated with this consciousness of being; being on the Earth and possessing a source of energy. For the sculpted objects, and those that are produced by the wheel, I favour subtle surface treatment so that one may still bear witness to the original matter.”

The ancient art of painting with wax, or encaustic has become a new found medium for Lisa Driver. In this show, Lisa will be exhibiting some of her recent colourful works where people take center stage as subjects.

François Fournier “Whether they are represented in the realist method, abstract or semi-abstract, the scenes of my region are a major source of my inspiration. My work records the actual movements of Nature. My style has a tendency towards the expressionist and impressionist. I mainly use oil paints and pastels.”

Lorraine Girard specializes in scenes and vignettes in miniatures. Over the years she has mastered many different techniques and styles, from painting to sculpture to stained glass. All of these she incorporates into her miniatures, to give them a life and a presence that belies their diminutive size.

The paintings of Carolyne Honey Harrison are imbued with her love of colour and reciprocal relation of colour to colour, as well as the juxtaposition of light and dark, male and female, to produce a phenomenon of mystery.

Trevor Mckinven, painter. “I begin each painting by taking a vivid mental/sensory snapshot to assure that the painting receives a nostalgic treatment that honours the person, place and story behind every work.”

Living in the Eastern Townships for the past 14 years, Heather Sampsom’s inspiration comes from everyday life & rural spaces. She is a painter and illustrator who also creates decorative window glass pieces, which you will find in this exhibit. Her materials include found beach glass from New Brunswick which she incorporates in her “Fun Catchers” and “Mermaid Tears”.

Marielle Savaria Martin’s approach is characterized by a single thread that links her to reality and keeps her at a distance from it. The smartly structured spatial layout in her work suggests vast, inner spaces, and the finely detailed treatment of her painting is rich in texture.

Uplands is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. and starting June 25th, Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 4:30 p.m. “Bonheur d’été” will continue through August 30th, 2009.
