“Toulouse Lautrec’S Brothel Images – Under the Covers” by Dr. Mary Hunter (Women's Art Society of Montreal)
Tue 27 Oct, 2015
End Date: Tue 27 Oct, 2015
Dr. Mary Hunter, an Associate Professor of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University, will discuss Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting of Rue des Moulins, 1894 (1894). She will explore the troubled ties between bodily and painterly surfaces, medical penetration and artistic encounters, as well as the tensions between the ‘slow time’ of waiting and the desire for speed and efficiency in modern medical life. She interprets that Lautrec’s painting invokes a gaze that hovers between the aesthetic and diagnostic as we read the painting for, and as, symptom(s).
This event will be held in the Bombardier Theatre of the McCord Museum (690 Sherbrooke West, Montreal) at 1:30pm, and is free for both members and non-members of the Women’s Art Society of Montreal. Visit the website www.womensartsociety.com for more information.

A new exhibit by Brigitte Radecki will be on show at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library’s Art Gallery from September 10 to November 1.
Radecki will present her latest works, Double Chance, alongside a handful of other pieces from previous bodies of work. Double Chance, the series and exhibit title, addresses the happy accidents created when relying upon elements of chance and randomness. Radecki then goes a step further by adding to the equation a more rigorous methodology in order to arrive at the final product. Photography, enlargement, printing, tracing and reproducing a form initially created by using an action painting technique (throwing paint onto the floor or canvas) becomes the product of that give and take.
Join us on Thursday, September 10 at 7 pm for a vernissage event that marks the opening of this exhibit and asks of the viewer to be open-minded about chance
encounters and the power of the subconscious mind to reveal what was previously unknown.

Hello to my friends, fellow artists, collectors and family members,
First, a thank you to all of you for continuing to support my work in many ways from purchases, to reflections, and comments. It means a lot to know you are in the wings for me!
This fall, the Missisquoi Museum is hosting a one- woman show of my paintings and prints on the themes of The Pinnacle Mountain and botanical prints. The Pinnacle Mountain is an especially important mountain in the south western area of the Eastern Townships as it sits as a background marker helping drivers, walkers, and cyclists orient themselves to this beautiful region of Quebec. From dawn to dusk, this almost perfect cone-shaped mountain, dressed in greens, fall colors, and winter coats of white is a prominent beacon.Read full...
