Souffle du vent

May 6 to July 8, 2018

Vernissage : May 6, 2018 (2-4pm)

Uplands Cultural and Heritage Center presents Souffle du vent from May 6 to July 8, 2018. The exhibition showcases the works of artists Lucie St-Jean and Mary Cartmel, who express themselves through painting and sculpture.

Lucie St-Jean

Lucie St-Jean lives in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Art and creativity have been a part of her life since childhood. Through the exhibition Souffle du vent, Lucie would like us to hear her inner music, the music that guides the expression of her poetry and art, makes her vibrate and keeps her authentic. Her imperfect lines reflect freedom, as she seeks to immortalize the wind and depict it in her paintings: she imagines herself touching the wind that fills the sails, that shapes the mountain summits, and that makes everything dance in its path. She seeks communion with the invisible. Lucie was awarded a Gold Medal in 2006 and a Silver Medal in 2005 at the annual Gala of the “Cercle des Artistes et Sculpteurs du Québec”. Her works form part of public and private collections throughout Canada and Europe.

Mary Cartmel

Mary Cartmel has been sculpting in stone since 1993. Originally a Montrealer, she now resides in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Birds are a recurring subject: in contemplative repose, lifting into flight, or landing to rest. The contrasting differences between the hardness and mass of the stone versus the delicate lightness and movement of the subject continue to challenge and intrigue her. Mary received the People’s Choice Award for her work in the 2005 Salon du Printemps exhibition at the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Art. Her sculptures are part of private collections around the world, as well as Canadian Corporate collections.
