the Belgo Building, St Catherine's street, Montreal. This post is a really brief summary of only four artists exhibiting this month. (I chose them because of their use of tactile materials) All photos in this post are by me, taken quickly during our visit yesterday. Thank you to the artists and the galleries. I have included links to their websites.
John Heward's self portraits in the galerie roger bellemare connected with me very strongly. The fabrics were painted on several mis-matched pieces of rayon and cotton fabrics, clipped together, the clips also serving to hang the pieces.
Sarah Bertrand Hamel's exhibition, Inhabiting, at the Joyce Yahouda Gallery was her Concordia University's MFA thesis exhibition.
Nathalie Grimard embroiders large panels of canvas with line drawings that reference memories.
galerie trois points.
Emily Hermant's exhibition, Spatial drawings, was made up of large scale works made of wood that twist and stretch through the large gallery space in Circa gallery.
fibres and materials study at Concordia.
I was very glad that we were able to spend even a short amount of time in the Belgo building . We are very busy packing as she is moving from Montreal.
