A personal view of Knowlton, Quebec, the Eastern Townships most beautiful village.

Une Saison Chez Guy Borremans
Read the full story here.

Guy Borremans montage from the brain of David Milligan after borrowing images from a long long time ago...art is timeless and all artists copy and recreate!Sutton seems to be a real hotbed of culture in the Eastern Townships and visitors and residents of Lac Brome are lucky to have such a dynamic artistic centre so close by…in fact with the renewal of Sutton over the last few years it could be argued that Sutton is becoming the new hip destination that is more modern than dear old Bromont!

The latest cultural event to take place in Sutton is the launch of the book “Une saison chez Guy Borremans with text by Sébastien Hudon. This event is sponsored by Librairie le livre d’or. Librairie le livre d’or and Arts Sutton Gallery are pleased to invite you to a book launch on October 19 at 7:00p.m.

According to the press release: “In his book, young photographer Sébastien Hudon meets Guy Borremans, one of Canada’s pioneer photographer and film maker. The reader will discover some of the more important pieces spanning his evolution. “

Guy Borremans has been a photographer for 48 years. As well, he has been a film-maker, cameraman, director of photography and producer for 29 years. At the National Film Board of Canada he has worked with Arthur Lamothe, Gilles Groulx, Clément Perron, Gilles Carle and others. Since the 1960's, in intimate collaboration with the founders of so called Cinema Verite, he has left his mark on cinematographic imagery, using available light and a hand-held camera. In 1956, he was a correspondent with Paris Match. In 1965, during a three-year stay in New York, he worked with the United Nations Film Department, National Educational Television (N.E.T.) Movietone and private producers of commercials.

Upon his return to Quebec in 1968, he worked on such films as Day after day, Le Mépris n'aura qu'un temps and Vingt-quatre heures ou plus. Marilu Mallet's film Le journal inachevé, which he shot, was awarded the Quebec critics' prize. He has also taught at the University of Montreal, at the Moncton University, Concordia University and UQUAM, while pursuing his career as portraitist and director of photography ( Film & video).

Since La femme Image, the first independent film shot in Quebec, in 1959, and his first one-man photography exhibition in 1956, he has taken part in more than 72 film productions, and 33 one-man photography exhibitions, including Voyou, voyant, voyeur (1972), Attentat instantané (1980) and, more recently, Connues, inconnus, malconnues, trop connus, at the Cinémathèque québécoise (1985). which was going to tour Europe through cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Liège and Charleroi.

Guy Borremans now has lived in Sutton since 1996 where he has his studio.

Arty phto by Sebastien Hudon...does the door give permission to become art or does the artist become a thief by extracting images like juice from a kiwi? Questions abound yet still we find time to...This sounds indeed like an interesting subject for a book and to think he lives in Sutton after all he has done! But what about Sébastien Hudon who has taken the time to devote himself to writing about this interesting figure in the Quebec artistic community. Sébastien Hudon studied art history and has worked as a photographer and on many interesting projects involving contemporary Quebec society and the artistic expression of many unknown masters.

- Librairie le livre d’or and Arts Sutton Gallery are pleased to invite you to a book launch on October 19 at 7:00p.m. This event is sponsored by Librairie le livre d’or. There will also be a book signing of Hudon’s book as well as an exhibition of Borremans’s photographies.

The book launch takes place at Arts Sutton Gallery
7 Academy Street, Sutton Quebec. Call 450-538-2563 for info. The artssutton.com website seems to be undergoing renovations and currently doesn’t offer much information on the event but take your chances.
