Le cadeau [The Gift] is the new group show for late 2019 and early 2020 at the Galerie des Beaux-arts des Amériques in Montréal. I was very pleased that my painting “A Hut by the Sea” was selected for this exhibition.
For many years, my spouse and I have visited the South Shore of Nova Scotia. We have long felt that to have small house in the area would be a fine and fortunate “gift” should we ever manage to acquire it.
This area is of exceptional beauty with many picturesque, historic communities perched directly on the ocean. The inspiration for my painting is derived from the charming buildings in the community of Blue Rocks, near the the town of Lunenburg, a Unesco heritage site. In effect, all these structures and settings are gifts to humanity.
Le cadeau runs from November 7 to December 21, 2019 at the Galerie des Beaux-arts des Amériques.
