Upcoming print exhibition in Gatineau, Quebec!


We are looking forward to a great print exhibition coming up where 4 of our printmakers celebrate food culture! Here are the details! (French follows)

August 20 to October 12, 2014
Espace Pierre-Debain
Opening night: September 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Everyone is invited, admission is free.

Inspired by the chefs who gave the art of the table its prestige, the Graphein collective borrows from the kitchen for its latest exhibition: The Banquet. When it comes to engraving, we cannot ignore the contribution of artists like niello-goldsmith Maso Finiguerra, who in 1452 discovered how to pull a proof from a silver plate that he had engraved for the church of St. John in Florence. Or that of Danish artist Henrick Boegh, who founded Grafisk Eksperimentarium in 1997, workshops for the dissemination of non-toxic printmaking techniques. Thanks to these and other trailblazers, contemporary artists have access to numerous recipes for developing their creative work. This exhibition brings together four artists with four different techniques, exploring the theme of the kitchen, a place for creation and production where surprises abound in the final concoctions. From container to content, come rediscover the world of multiple art.

Artists: Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Denise Tremblay and Deidre Hierlihy

Du 20 août au 12 octobre 2014
Espace Pierre-Debain
Vernissage exceptionnellement le 3 septembre de 18 h à 20 h. Le grand public est invité. Entrée libre en tout temps.

Inspiré par les chefs qui ont su donner ses lettres de noblesse à l’art de la table, le collectif Graphein passe par la cuisine pour vous présenter sa plus récente exposition : Le Banquet. En gravure, nous ne saurions ignorer l’apport d’artistes comme Maso Finiguerra, orfèvre nielleur qui trouva en 1452 le moyen de tirer l’épreuve d’une plaque d’argent qu’il avait gravée pour l’église Saint-Jean de Florence. Encore moins celui de l’artiste danois Henrick Boegh, fondateur de l’Experimentarium pour les arts imprimés en 1997, ateliers visant la diffusion des techniques de gravure non toxique. Grâce à eux et à bien d’autres, de nombreuses recettes s’offrent aux artistes contemporains dans la mise en valeur de leur création. Cette exposition regroupe quatre artistes : quatre techniques différentes qui explorent le thème de la cuisine, espace de création et de production où ce que l’on y mijote cache bien des surprises. Du contenu au contenant, venez redécouvrir l’art du multiple!

Artistes : Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Denise Tremblay et Deidre Hierlihy
