Past Exhibitions

Gilles Carle Exhibition

September 16 to December 4, 2016

Gilles Carle Exhibition

While better known as an inspired and inspiring filmmaker with a marked international influence, Gilles Carle is also a creative visual artist whose spirit and scope are revealed in the works gathered here. His work boasts an originality, variety, refined intelligence and underlying eroticism that call for a new perspective on the nature of Québécois art and its baroque, playful backdrop.

Chant libre - Spazuk

Chant libre - Spazuk

Since 2001, Steven Spazuk has expressed his artistic vision through the technique of “fire painting.” He uses the open flame of a candle on a blank canvas to create a sooty effect, which he then sculpts using feathers, stylus, brushes and scrapers.
