The movement Neccesaire by H. Coulombe featured at the Sutton Gallery.
With Knowlton being such a central village in the Eastern Townships we have the benefit of being close to a number of bsuy centers featuring art and entertainment. Sutton is so close and yet has a wonderfully distinct ambiance and anyone visiting Knolwton shouldn't miss the chance to visit Sutton.

Now on in Sutton until August 19, the Arts Sutton Gallery will showcase the work of Hélène Coulombe and Suzanne Reid.

Hélène Coulombe is exhibiting Debout (ou La vie crue), a series of paintings using acrylic on canvas. Coulombe’s recent work aims to draw attention to the temporary and fleeting phases of the act of creation. "I’m interested in the notion of movement and the effort required to take action … to create and to overcome inertia". In addition to painting, Hélène Coulombe works with mixed media and video. A native of Shawinigan, she held her first solo exhibition in 2002.

Des variations et de traces by S Reid at Sutton GallerySuzanne Reid is presenting Traces, a collection of refined prints created using woodcuts. In the 1970s, Quebec experienced a renaissance in the field of contemporary printmaking. Reid draws inspiration for her work from master printmakers such as Albert Dumouchel, Richard Lacroix, Pierre Ayot and René Derouin. In addition to her prolific pace of production, Reid has spent more than 20 years promoting and disseminating Québécois engraving at home and around the world. She works in Rigaud and in Montréal .

Curators: Yves L.-Ph.Cousineau and Jules Arbec.

The Arts Sutton Gallery is located on rue Academy in Sutton and is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
