A WARM WELCOME FROM THE CITY OF GATINEAU TO LE COLLECTIF GRAPHEIN

The opening of PASSAGE À L’ENCRE was a success, thanks to the excellent work of Marthe Cousineau, project manager for the City of Gatineau and exhibit commissioner. Four members of the OGPC (Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Rod Restivo, Manon Tremblay) showed 55 prints among which thirty percent were sold the first evening.

Everything had been planned to make this evening a memorable event. The hanging of the prints and the lighting showed the prints at their best. The musician as well as the personnel from the catering service placed everyone at ease. Each artist was pleased with the dialogue that took place between themselves and the visitors. The questions asked were pertinent and the comments encouraging.

The exhibit – at l’espace René-Prevost, 39 rue Leduc, Gatineau – continues to June 10. Make sure to make a visit!

May 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25 from 6pm to 9:30pm
May 19, 26, 30, 31 and June 1, 2, 8, 9 from noon to 5pm
May 30, 31 and June 6, 7 from 6:30 pm to 9pm

UN ACCUEIL CHALEUREUX DE LA VILLE DE GATINEAU
AU LE COLLECTIF GRAPHEIN

Le succès du vernissage de _Passage à l’encre_ est largement dû à l’excellent travail de Marthe Cousineau, chargée de projet à la ville de Gatineau et commissaire de l’exposition. Quatre membres du groupe connective (Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Rod Restivo, Manon Tremblay) exposaient 55 estampes dont trente pour-cent ont été venues le soir même.

Tout avait été planifié afin de rendre cette soirée mémorable : l’éclairage et l’accrochage des œuvres les mettaient en valeur et le musicien ainsi que le personnel du service de traiteur mettaient à l’aise toutes les personnes présentent. Chaque artiste avait plaisir à
communiquer avec les visiteurs et les questions soulevées étaient pertinentes. Les commentaires émis étaient très encourageants.

L’exposition – à l’espace René-Provost, 39 rue Leduc, Gatineau – se poursuit jusqu’au 10 juin. Ne la manquez pas.
16,17,18,23,24,25 mai de 18h à 21h30

WOOD CUT PRINTS  BY TED JOHNSTON

WOOD CUT PRINTS
BY TED JOHNSTON

Working from original photographs or designs, he has created a collection of prints of scenes ranging from Ottawa to a variety of foreign locations based on postings and travels. Two ‘works-in-progress’ are Ottawa-focused: The Streets of the City and Church Facades and Steeples. He has also created original sketches and representations of people, animals, and whimsical ideas.
Many are familiar with prints as records of by-gone scenes or events, before cameras were invented. By selecting contemporary scenes, however, Ted’s prints renew one’s perception of buildings, vistas or events that are normally lost through every day familiarity.
