Myriane Berg

I am Myriane Bergeron, self-taught painter and my artist name is Myriane Berg.  My attraction to painting manifested itself in adolescence at the same time as writing._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ These two modes of expression imposed themselves as a necessity, an impulse of the soul.  The desire to understand and express my existential questions found their results on my canvases.  Painting gave me an existential update. 

 

After some basic studies in art schools, I favored the self-taught adventure and favored spontaneous gestures.  The result is naturally tinged with figurative abstraction and impressionism._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_  Painting becomes for me a great school of freedom where letting go is a constant reminder. 

 

Today, in front of the white canvas, I take the time to surround myself with an atmosphere.  I create a background of colors on the canvas and I stay in touch with this colored fragrance for moment.  I continue according to my emotions.  I sometimes allow myself to destroy in order to rebuild something new, the important thing being the moment of creation and not a goal to reach.  The work ends when she delivered her message to me.

 

It is with this in mind that I have structured workshops exploring individual creativity.  We use tools and exercises that stimulate openness to everyone's innate abilities._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ Pleasure, spontaneity and wonder are important parts of the creative process.  This results in a better understanding of one's humanity. _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

 

Color is the first expression of creation.  The joy of creating opens us up to ourselves and to the world

Exhibition October 2017

Opening September 29

Edith Blais

I discovered drawing quite late, around the age of 15. Overnight, I discovered a passion that is now part of me. I started with a portrait course. It was quite a technical course. Until about 5 years ago, I mostly did reproductions. I liked it, but I lacked the expression, I wanted to express myself with my art and not just practice the technique. That's when I decided to take a watercolor and mixed media course. The revelation!  I tried a combination at home that surprised me. Indian ink mixed with watercolour. I wanted to learn to master these two techniques together because I had been impressed with the result. Then, in homage to my love for nature. I also wanted to share this beauty and include it in my art.

 

I started a great journey at the age of 29. I left for western Canada thinking of returning after 3 months. I didn't come back. I traveled with my pack, slept on beaches with communities, under bridges, in my tent... I moved around and felt completely free. I followed the wind, the seasons, friends, odd jobs. After 3 years of nomadism, I came back to Quebec for a few months where I created this exhibition. I painted with this essence of freedom and adventures that filled me. Now I'm back again because I haven't just discovered travel, but rather a way of life that resembles me and that I like. Quebec to paint because I miss it a lot. I try to live my passions and art is part of it.

Exposure

Mixed exhibition November to February 2018

Michelle Coutu

Coming from a family of artists,  my father was, outside of his work, a painter and my mother was an interior decorator. I discovered very young a certain talent for the portrait. I have a taste for detail. The precision of the lines and the emotion transmitted by the look are really a passion for me.

 

Even if, during my life, I painted a lot of landscapes, street scenes and others..., I always came back to the portrait. collection of paintings representing artists recognized for their songs.  Each of my paintings illustrates the words, the portrait of the artist and the thought conveyed by the song._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ As for the one representing  Celine Dion with her song MY HEART WILL GO ON.  I reproduced on my canvas, the Titanic sinking on a raging sea and Céline who lives the emotion of the song.

 

I exhibited several years ago at the Hériot Art Gallery  (today AXART) in Drummondville where Mr. Fernand Brunelle had classified me as a professional from my first presentation._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ Every year I participate in the Salon des Métiers d'Art at the CEGEP and I give painting lessons to convey my passion for colors and shapes.

 

I am happy today to present you some of my paintings, those that I call MY ANGELS AND MY FAIRIES and I thank La Maison de la Culture de l'Avenir for giving me the opportunity.

 

Hope to meet you.

Carole Coutu

Opening November 30, 6:30 p.m.

Self-taught painter, born into a family of artists, Carole Coutu began her artistic career as a musician. in plastic art and drama.  She wrote musicals by creating the story, the staging, the music, the texts, the sets and costumes._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ As she approached retirement, she discovered a taste for painting. She then chose to express herself for 10 years as an animal painter.

She will seek in animals the naturalness and the expression that make them so endearing and why some people choose them to be part of their lives.

 

For her, each animal has its own soul and she believes that this is why it is so easy to create chemistry between humans and animals, and this has always been the case.  Fascinated by their different behaviors, his subjects (birds, horses, puppies and kittens) are placed in their

  environment and must represent calm, nobility, curiosity or even maternal instinct.

Here are some of his past experiences in expo :

  • Côme Saint-Germain library in Drummondville

  • world of cultures

  • Arts and crafts fair at Cegep de Drummondville

Exhibition end of January to end of March

Helen Durocher

She has always been fascinated  by the human body. With a scientific background in human biology and a teacher in this field, it was natural to combine this fascination with sa passion for drawing.

 

First enrolled in drawing courses on physiognomy and by exploring various mediums, dry pastel became the means of expression that corresponded most to her personality. The direct contact with the chalk which clings to the support gives me a feeling of closeness to the subject. 

 

She particularly likes the portrait where she  seeks to touch the "aura", to bring out the state of mind that hides behind the gaze. Everything becomes a question of emotion, each subject becomes an emotional experience.

 

In permanent formation, son art evolves, however, the theme of the human being is the permanent basis.

Exhibition Carolle Cajolet

Opening April 6, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.

From his first pencil strokes, his talent was noticed by those around him. Encouraged by her parents, from the age of 9, she took painting lessons where she distinguished herself by her artistic instinct. At 12, Carolle made her first contract; an oil to illustrate the house of ''aunt Gilberte''.

 

In secondary school, several walls were signed ''Cajolet''. We often called on his multiple skills for everything related to art. Inhabited by this passion, Carolle was convinced of having found her domain.  Over the years, she exploits her various spheres: from drawing to painting, from graphics to chief designer, from pottery to sculpture, from costumes to stage decor... Today, mastering several mediums, Carolle shares her expertise and her love for teaching.  Many believe she has a , that magic took hold of his brushes and his pencils. Accomplished artist, it is in several forms of medium that she presents these paintings filled with ardor and emotions. Room for magic.
