Art Trail



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Art trail of the High Forest. That's what it would be called in English, maybe, our Sentier artistique des Hauts-Boisés. But don't get tied into knots about language. The trail offers the shared language of Art, and here is your chance to learn a bit of its vocabulary, as in drawings, paintings, poetry, pottery, photography, paintings, sculptures and woodworking.

The Sentier is now in its sixth incarnation, with a full dozen artists inviting us into their studios, ready to share their inspirations and their creations. It offers more artists and more diversity than ever before, and it takes you into the hidden reaches of Bury, Cookshire, Randboro, Sawyerville, and Saint-Isidore-de-Clifton.

The dates are Friday to Sunday, July 15 to 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. But it kicks off on Thursday, July 14, with a 5 à 7 at the Ferme La Généreuse, 540 Labonté Road, Cookshire-Eaton. There, you get to meet the artists, and there, dancer and visual artist Amélie Lemay Choquette shows her dancing oil paintings on recycled glass.

The second stop is at the endoftheroadcabinetmakers (Facebook moniker) Bout du chemin/Tammy & Gilles. They are woodworkers, and their workshop is literally at the end of the road, 915 Leblanc Road in Cookshire. Third is Tony De Melo, painter and photographer, who will be showing his work at the Canterbury Center, 1095, Route 214, Bury, well on the way to Scotstown. Don't expect your usual landscapes; do look for lots of colour and pizazz.

Next on the tour is Daniel Labonté, 98 Flanders Road, Sawyerville, with pottery, solid and elegant. Madeleine Masson-Labonté at the same address shows watercolour paintings; do look for landscapes.

In Sawyerville, at 28 Randboro Road, Libbey Griffith and Christa Kotiesen team up again this year, Griffith with oil paintings, and Kotiesen with dry pastels, drenched in colour. From there, the road takes you south to Randboro. At 1149 Route 210 is Denis Palmer's studio, where are his drawings and watercolours and books venerating the people and animals and nature of his beloved community.

Further south, to the wilds of St-Isidore-de-Clifton: Get set for fantasy, at the studio of Luc Pallegoix & Sylvain Dodier, 15 Principale Street, where they display photography and poetry. And the last stop at 50 Clifton Road West is sure to be memorable. There is Normand Gladu in his secluded studio, full of his environmental and contemporary sculptures and intriguing bits of the detritus of so-called civilization, the raw materials of his robust works. He loves to talk about his work. As do most all the artists on the trail.

What treasures we have in our artists, in the high forests of the Haut-Saint-François! To enjoy them fully, get your detailed tour guide by phoning 819-889-2549, or pick it up at the 5 à 7 on Thursday evening.

NEWPORT OUTING
Planning ahead, the Municipality of Newport is offering residents a choice of two special group outings in mid-October. Hard decision! On one hand, there's lunch at a local restaurant, and a group visit to the Eaton Corner Museum, at a cost of $30, more or less. On the other, there's a jaunt on the newly resurrected Orford Express, a beautiful train ride of 3 ½ hours, with a 3-course meal. The cost would be about $85/adult or $30/child. A deposit of $40 is required. The deadline for reservations is July 22. Info: Lyne Maisonneuve at 819-889-1340, Anne-Marie Dubeau at 819-875-5227, or Newport Town Hall at 819-560-8565.

HYMN SING
The Eaton Corner Museum offers its annual Hymn Sing on Sunday, July 17, at 2 p.m. in the old Congregational church that now houses the Museum's main exhibit. Sitting in the traditional pews that inhabit the space, participants will sing traditional hymns, some chosen by the Museum president Sharon Moore, and some picked by singers themselves. You can expect some refreshments, and perhaps an offering basket, but admission is free. As is the tradition.

Get set for Old Fashioned Day at the Eaton Corner Museum on Sunday, August 14, at 2 p.m. There will be demonstrations and displays of heritage crafts, skills, and trades. And of course, the Foss House will be open, offering Denis Palmer prints for sale and originals on display.
