Vernissage: Wednesday, March 7 from 5 to 8 pm
ESPACE TROIS, Montreal, February 21, 2007. Espace Trois is pleased to present the work of this yearís graduates of the Comprehensive Art Programme (CAP) of the School of Fine Arts of the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts. Both artists have been developing their skills for three years while immersing themselves in classes with many different teachers. Their art works selected for this month long exhibition all relate to past history, remembered events, fashion as well as the artistsí own individual personal interests.
Mary Mannapso has selected paintings of her memories of immigrating to Canada as a child including scenes from her childhood in Sweden as well as her arrival in a new country. Although her passion is portraiture she also includes some landscapes and still-life flower arrangements. Often her paintings are interpretations of old family photographs. The artistís interests are varied and emotionally challenging. During the past three years, Mary has been developing her creative ability to work in oil-paint, acrylic and mixed media.
While studying to give direction to her profound need to create her own vision, Marie-Claude felt a breakthrough at the end of her second year. Developing from her earlier experience in music and dance, the artistís interest in body movement, clothing and costumes continued. Her sculptures in this exhibition are inspired by these elements and her preferred materials are stone, wood, cast hydro stone and clay.
We hope you enjoy looking at the paintings and sculptures assembled together and can support the creativity of these two developing artists.
Espace Trois is an exhibition space of the School of Fine Arts devoted to exhibiting work by artists who teach in the School of Fine Arts as well as Advanced Atelier Members.
