EXHIBITIONS

Each year, Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver is proud to present five exhibitions of the works of talented francophone and francophile artists from British Columbia, and sometimes from farther afield. These exhibitions give sculptors, painters, photographers and multidisciplinary artists the opportunity to show their work professionally in the library of Le Centre for one or two months.

Each exhibition opens with a public wine and cheese reception, free of charge, where visitors can meet and talk to the artist.

The exhibitions currently showing can be seen during the regular open hours at Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver.

Canada 150: Canada Goes Pacific

From July 20 to 27, 2017, in the context of the Canada 150: Canada Goes Pacific event, Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver will host an exhibition devoted to the landscapes of the Pacific coast. Presented in the library at Le Centre, the exhibition Canada 150: Canada Goes Pacific has assembled the works of three francophone artists who bring us their vision of the natural and urban landscapes of the Pacific coast. This series of works shows us a seaside with a thousand and one facets that oscillate between the city and nature.


 

Nicole Dahan

The works of Nicole Dahan presented here capture special moments in her discovery of the natural environment of British Columbia. They express an original vision of nature that is both figurative and abstract, using a beautiful heavy application of subtle colours in relief. Nicole Dahan has been awarded many distinctions, including 17 gold medals and the International Oscar for Pictorial Arts (Paris).


 

Sandrine Pelissier

Inspired by the landscapes of British Columbia, this series of paintings plays on the contrasts between very fluid passages and the precise lines depicting details, between the figurative and the imaginary, and between organic and geometric forms. These landscapes are an imagined and idealised version of a luxuriant, benevolent nature, where no human trace can be seen. Originally French, Sandrine Pelissier has lived in Vancouver for 18 years, where she co-founded the North Shore Art Crawl, a drawing group, as well as a collective art project called The Big Picture (Une Vue d’Ensemble).


 

Yolande Morin

At the age of nine, Yolande Morin discovered photography, which immediately became her preferred medium. Based in Vancouver since 1972, the Quebec artist has travelled and immortalised daily life in a number of locations in Europe, Latin America or Quebec. She feels that her studies in geography taught her to really look at and appreciate the variations in nature and in the people in the countries she visits. Her works celebrate the beauty of the landscapes she has photographed, and above all, the powerful and omnipresent substance of colour.

 

The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, July 20, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver, with the artists in attendance. Wine, fruit juice and cheese will be served.
