Quoth the Raven

 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Forsooth, the new art exhibit in the heart of our very own Cookshire is something to see, quoth the raven! It's at the new cultural centre where the Anglican parsonage used to be, at 25 Principale West. The centre itself, Maison de la culture John-Henry Pope, is delightfully renovated, and the exhibition is part of the Coeur villageois project. In the spacious erstwhile dining-living room area, four artists offer humour and curiosity, works that engage both the mind and heart.

Robert Péloquin of Birchton is a member of said project, and the exhibition's title comes from his imposing sculpture just inside the front window: Raven Synchronicity. Seven vertical feet of steel, sandblasted glass and stained glass that evoke the mythical bird, mediator between life and death.

Young Sook Kim-Lambert has studied in both Korea and Montreal, and explores humanity using water media and mixed media. Her works range from small painted portraits to a canvas more than six feet wide, Motherland. It's an intriguing blend of paint, collage, embroidery and calligraphy.

The intrigue thickens with paper works that cannibalize pages from an encyclopedia. It's a 1,500-page project by Ann Bilodeau of Verdun, and the selections in this exhibit permit you to read about, among other ideas, "the gap between who we are and who we want to be," or "Maladies de l'appareil urinaire."

And in the next room is a suite of prints by artist/author Luc Pallegoix of Saint-Isidore-de-Clifton, where he and poet Sylvain Dodier work at their Atelier Auckland. More intrigue: Human figures with deer heads, the series is called Le cerf ectomorphe / The Queer Deer.

Good news: The exhibit is free; it's really worth the visit, and you'll receive a warm welcome. Opening hours till the end of August: Thursday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday to Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. After that, it's open weekends only. The exhibit continues until October 31.

The Sawyerville United Church Turkey Supper is on Thursday, September 8, starting at 4 p.m., at the Catholic Church in Sawyerville. The supper features roast turkey with all the trimmings, vegetables, homemade rolls and pies, tea and coffee, all at last year's prices: $14 for adults, $6 for children aged 6-10, and free for children aged 5 or younger.

The Eaton Corner Museum is open weekends during September, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments for other days can be arranged by calling Sharon at 819-837-2643.
