From February 22 to March 25, Arts Sutton Gallery presents an exhibition of current works by Mary Bogdan and Ted Yudelson which deal with the theme of change or the hope of change. The two artists address the issue of personal evolution in their own unique way through their encounter with the creative process. Within the moments of incidental illuminations that occur along the way, each discovers hope for metamorphosis, leading to transformation and ultimately, transcendence.

The work involves the recycling, recovery, manipulation and alteration of "found" objects and demonstrates the pursuit of reinvention of self, of an approach to life or a way of being. It addresses the shaping of the self through the creation of art, both on a personal and collective level. The work looks at inner struggles and seeks a better understanding of self and its place in our society. It portrays a quest for healing...a way to undo the past or, at least, to understand the present and invent a better future.

Mary Bogdan holds a bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University, and has participated in creative painting at the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, and assemblage at the Visual Arts Centre. A graphic designer by profession, she is co-founder and partner of Crayon Design & Communication, a graphic design firm, with husband photographer, Sol Lang, and has won numerous international awards. Her paintings, assemblages and limited edition prints have been exhibited internationally and are in public and private collections.

Works by Ted Yudelson add to the drama of the newest Arts Sutton showcase.Ted Yudelson holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from McGill University and has participated in sketching at McGill, stained glass at the Visual Arts Centre and pottery at the Gora Studio. An architect by profession, he is an Associate with the IBI Group, a multidisciplinary international design firm. Ted recently embarked on a project of assemblages, his first major body of work. The mixed media series, called Broken Promises, employs computer components as its primary element. Image Courtesy of Ted Yudelson, Cyborg 1 (detail), Mixed Media, 36 X 36 X 10 cm

The Gallery will also be presenting an "Artist Talk" with Mary Bogdan on Saturday March 10 at 2:00pm. The vernissage and exhibit are happening at the Sutton gallery in beautiful downtown Sutton during the regular opening hours of the Gallery which are Thursday to Sunday 11:00 to 5:00.

Sutton, Quebec is one of our favorite villages near Lac Brome because of her quaint charm and pretty layout. Located at the junction of 239 and the 215 highways it can be reached on your way to Cowansville or Knowlton and is a short one hour out of Montreal. The art gallery and local boutiques, coffee shops and great restaurants in Sutton are the ideal afternoon visit and the skiing at Mont Sutton is the Eastern Townships best kept secret.

The Sutton Gallery is located at Academy Road in Sutton, Quebec. Telephone (450)538-2563 for more information. Arts Sutton Website
