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.

 

   

"AQUATIKA" EXHIBITION BY SYLVIE PELTIER

Location Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver1551, West 7th AvenueVancouver, V6J 1S1

From March 11 to April 22, Sylvie Peltier's exhibition "Aquatika" will take place at Le Centre. Her work explores the richness and complexity of nature, which is so much more than a mountain, a sunset, a forest, or a lake. Recently she has been experimenting with the interplay of lily pads, reeds, and water and the mysterious abstract motifs they create.

 From March 11 to April 22, Sylvie Peltier's exhibition "Aquatika" will take place at Le Centre. Her work explores the richness and complexity of nature, which is so much more than a mountain, a sunset, a forest, or a lake. Nature is dynamic, constantly evolving, advancing or eroding, full of beauty regardless of scale, and everywhere around us. For most people, a sky is blue, a tree is brown and green, a strawberry is red. But when you stop to look and open yourself to what is truly in front of you, it is transformed, and there is infinitely more to see and so much beauty to discover. Recently she has been experimenting with the interplay of lily pads, reeds, and water and the mysterious abstract motifs they create. Because water can be both a mirror and a window, we can see the lily’s stems reaching for the surface, the sky and the trees reflected among them, the shadows of the leaves on the water, and how subtle movements of the water transform our perception and take us into another universe.

 I sign my paintings Esspé, which is the phonetic expression in French of my initials, SP. An optimist by nature, I love to share a softer and more luminous view of the world. My studio is located in White Rock, British Columbia, a small seaside community with a pier jutting into the ocean and a view of the United States. I enjoy looking at the works of other artists and I find much inspiration in what they do. David HockneyDavid T. Alexander, and Peter Doig are currently among my favourite painters.

 I have been producing television programs with my husband for close to 25 years https://www.redletterfilms.com/. I also create digital drawings and paintings on my iPad, some of which have become the cards available here. You can follow my work on my website, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
