Landscape reigns at Bury art shows


By Rachel Garber

Two separate art exhibitions conquered Bury last September 20th. A painting exhibition at the United Cultural Centre showed the works of 14 artists, and at the municipal hall, the Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre showed the works of 10 painters and one jewellery artist, plus 5 or 6 children artists.

Altogether, that makes about 200 paintings and a whole pile of wearable art in the form of jewelry. But in both shows, landscape was king.

This is the 12th annual art show at the Bury United Cultural Centre, said its chief organizer, Shelley Jacklin. Over the years, it has varied in size - the Mégantic artists have not been able to come last year or this, she said, but she expects they'll be back next year.

The exhibition featured well known and well loved local artists. Anne Bergeron, Stuart Main and Monique Laliberté of Bishopton. Marisa Beauchemin, Marilyn Salter and Linda Thibault of Bury. Ghisèle Goulet, Clément Corriveau and Jeanne d'Arc Viens of East Angus. John Ward of Lingwick. Denis Palmer of Randboro and Christa Kotiesen of Sawyerville. And from beyond, Muriel Fitzsimmons of Lennoxville and Lucille Duhaime of Sherbrooke.

Marilyn Salter said the day "went very well. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, with a good turnout of people." There were a couple of sales, and one very lucky Wanda Parsons won the drawing for a painting by Salter. It was a landscape at the Long Swamp, 11 x 14 inches, acrylic on canvas.

Just down the street, the Eaton Corner CLC's exhibition was similar in nature, but featured mostly artists from the Lennoxville art group. From Bury was Martine Brault and the children of the Pope Memorial School. From Bishopton was Kristiina Sakai. And from Sherbrooke were Jean-Claude Breton, Leta Dustin, Francine Gauthier, Carolyn Jones, Lucille Lefebvre, Marie-Paule Lefebvre and Thérèse Pelchat.

This is the third year the CLC has organized an exhibition to help raise funds for CLC activities. The Centre's coordinator, Kim Fessenden, sees the two Bury exhibitions as complementing each other. "I would like to build on the two events and partner with other community groups to make it a Bury harvest festival of sorts," she wrote in an email. "I see music, food vendors, pumpkin displays, etc. It is an idea that others have shared at various meetings."

And the lucky visitor at the CLC show was Mysie Paul of Bury. She won a pastel drawing by Martine Brault, entitled "Fin d'été en forêt" (The Forest at Summer's End). It was inspired by a quiet place in Brookbury, said Brault.

Up to 100 visitors took in the two exhibitions.
