Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience is a celebration of Indigenous resilience. The exhibition uses humour and critical insight to create a troubling retrospective of what Monkman refers to as “the most devastating period for First Peoples.”

Trois panneaux ( deux de 36 x48 et celui du centre 24×36) représentant différentes cultures.

Le panneau central représente les premiers arrivants, alors que les deux autres sont les portraits de 4 élèves de l’école. L’ordre des panneaux va comme suit : filles- premiers arrivants-garçons.

Les 4 mots : Amour-Paix-Harmonie-Fraternité ont été écrits en plusieurs langues. Les élèves les ont dessinés de même que les cercles et plumes que j’ai ensuite découpés et collés.

Ces panneaux iront à l’Omnicentre de la Ville de Pincourt. Ils sont exposés à la Bibliothèque de la ville ( Ecole du Chêne Bleu) jusqu’au 1er juin et partiront ensuite à l’Omnicentre lors d’une journée spéciale de la ville sur le multiculturalisme.

Merci, Céline


A wonderful project done with the students of Le Chêne Bleu high school in Pincourt.

The theme: multiculturalism. The three panels are representing the different cultures in the school. The portraits where created from the photographs of 4 students. The central panel represents the first arrivals. Peace-Fraternity-love and harmony are the 4 words written in different languages.

All the lettering, the feathers and the circles are the creation of the students. They also helped in the painting and the collage of the background of the panels.

Those panels will be displayed at the Pincourt Library ( in the Chêne Bleu high school) until the 1st of June. Then, they will be installed in the Omnicentre of the City of Pincourt.

Thank you, Céline.

His name is Arthur, and despite his disapproving appearance he’ll be happy to hang on the wall of some lucky raffle ticket holder at the Hudson Artists Spring 2019 Art Expo. Visitors are invited to drop in and take a chance on winning Arthur, with raffle proceeds going to the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence Foundation.
For non-winners, a herd of Arthur’s farmyard friends, fresh from the whimsical paintbrush of Carole Lessard, will also be available at very affordable prices during the show.
But there’s much more. Whether a visitor’s preference is for oil paintings, watercolours or mixed media works, they can select from a wide variety of exciting creations by our many other talented artists.
