We salute our catalan artist Montserrat Duran Muntadas for her first bilingual monograph: “Montserrat Duran Muntadas, ENGENDRER L’IMPALPABLE“. In this book, the author Pascale Beaudet retraces the artist’s journey and artistic practice since 2009.

We are very happy for this young, beautiful and talented sculptor and glass blower, who creates impressive glass and textile artworks whose themes encompass important and complex themes, such as femininity, fertility and nature.

Gilles Boisvert was and continues to be a significant visual artist of our history in Quebec for more than 60 years. We wish to underline his obtainment of a new architecture integration (1%) project, at the reception hall of the Metropolitan Parc of the Domaine Seigneurial de Mascouche, the 20th since the beginning of his career.

Bravo to this great artist for this ambitious project, that will be constructed in May 2022!

We wish to congratulate the great Czech ceramist Eva Lapka for the recent acquisition of one of her artworks from the “CHUCHOTEMENT” series, by the Musée des métiers d’arts du Québec (MUMAQ), in 2021.

Bravo to Lapka for all her beautiful, atypical, provocative and intimate artworks, full of history, that she offers to the world since more than 50 years!

“The “CHUCHOTEMENT” series are made of heads hidden behind murmuring hands. You have to understand that I lived my childhood and adolescence years in the Czechoslovakia communist era. The walls had ears and silence was mandatory, under penalty of denunciation.” Eva Lapka

We would like to congratulate our artist Carole Baillargeon for her creative research residency at the Maison des métiers d’art de Québec (MMAQ), from January 31st to April 1st 2022.

Baillargeon will refine her research on natural dyes extracted from local plants and exotic materials. She will pursue the creation of artworks for her “exploration journals” of dyes and natural inks, that we have presented at the Papier art fair 2021. We wish her success and enjoyment during her residency. We are already excited to see the next big “pages” to come!
