The Gaspé Peninsula: Land on the Edge of Time
Linda Rutenberg is a Montreal-based photographer who has exhibited at the international level. Her body of work is about the interplay between cities, the environment and people. In Rutenberg’s most recent project, The Gaspé Peninsula: Land on the Edge of Time, she presents breathtaking pictures of this remote region of Quebec. Her photographs linger on the imprint of the lives and stories of individuals living in this isolated spot, as she captures the heart of winter.
In the Project Room
The Stewart Hall Art Gallery is honoured to organize an exhibition in tribute to West Island artist Stella Charters (1920-2014). Well-respected and loved by many in the community, she was an early member of the Lakeshore Artists Association (LAA), founded in 1956.
Charters had a talent for painting the joyous wonderment of children at play, and the exhibition will feature these works as well as some of her equally interesting but lesser-known woodcuts. We would like to express our gratitude to Stella Charters’s niece Lesley Cotton and her extended family for graciously loaning their collection of Charters’s paintings.
Vernissage: Wednesday, September 9, at 7 p.m.
