The Alliance Française of Calgary and Sabine Lecorre-Moore are teaming up to present an exhibition at cSPACE. This exhibition is called Memory and consists of abstract paintings painted on large canvases. Sabine uses watercolour, a delicate medium to depict the fragility of our memory.
The artistic duo Conversation is composed of Patricia Lortie and Sabine Lecorre-Moore. Recently, they have created, with the help of the public, a mural on a Plexiglas support. This project, titled Awareness, took place November 3 at the ACFA gala (Association canadienne-française de l’Alberta). The resulting artwork is a vibrant portrait of Calgary’s diverse Franco-Albertan community.
An idea for end of the year presents: books about Canadian artists. Here are my favourites that I keep handy in my studio.
- Oh, Canada or: How I Learned to Love 3.8 Million Square Miles of Art North of the 49th Parallel, a book on contemporary art made in Canada.
- Livre Livre, a Franco-Canadian book explaining the intricacy of writing an artist statement.
- Chris Cran: Sincerely Yours, this book, about one of the great Alberta artist, is so beautiful that it could be hang on a wall as an artwork.
- Earthlings Nunajuarmi Nunaqaqtut Terriens, a superb exhibition catalogue by the Esker Foundation, gathering the artists Roger Aksadjuak, Shuvinai Ashoona, Pierre Aupilardjuk, Jessie Kenalogak, John Kurok, Leo Napayok et Shary Boyle.
