The regular schedule will be reinstated Wednesday, January 3, 2007. The museum will thus be closed on December 24, 25, 26 and 31 as well as January 1 and 2. On show, 3 exhibitions and for all ages! And, please do not forget to visit the museum’s boutique for the last minute and perfect gift: original works from the Townships artists, including paintings, drawings, photographs, jewellery and pottery, something for everyone! The boutique’s schedule is the same than the museum’s.

The museum’s team takes this opportunity to thank you for your generous support this past year and to offer you our best wishes for the Holiday season.

The Joy of Collecting. The Donation Jean de Margerie and family
(Until January 14, 2007)

The Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke acquired recently an important part of Dr. Jean de Margerie’s collection, a native of Saskatchewan, established in Sherbrooke. The exhibition will show some 50 selected works on paper from European artists and paintings, sculptures and works on paper from major Québec artists : from Salvador Dali, Sonia Delaunay, Georges Rouault, Pierre Soulages, Antoni Tapiès, Maurice de Vlaminck to Marcelle Ferron, Gisèle Leclerc, Jean-Paul Riopelle, David Sorensen, Yves Trudeau and Arthur Villeneuve.

Quinze, lucid and lunatic (Until January 21, 2007)

Under the nom de plume Quinze (Fifteen) hides a man born in the Eastern Townships, who now lives in Gaspésie, where he creates singular works, marrying folk art techniques to intellectual preoccupations, regarding society and artistic movements. The exhibition will show nearly 30 works created by this sympathetic and lucid lunatic!

Manières et matières. La collection du Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke
