Apprendre à mieux se faner | The carefulness and the blade

Artists: Annie France Leclerc, Anne-Marie Proulx, Vicky Sabourin

Curator: Marie-Hélène Durocher

Presented at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery as part of the second edition of the Post-Invisibles biennial, The carefulness and the blade explores the act of harvesting, and the connection to the territory and the living it fosters. Bringing together the delicate works of artists Annie France Leclerc, Anne-Marie Proulx and Vicky Sabourin, this exhibition curated by Marie-Hélène Durocher unfolds around notions of care, memory and the transmission of knowledge.

Vernissage: Sunday, February 25, 2 p.m.

From February 24 to April 21, 2024

Talk – Demystifying art: Wednesday, February 28, 10 a.m.
With: Vicky Sabourin and Justine Skahan

Project Room: Artist in residence — Justine Skahan

Justine Skahan’s work examines the idea of home and the role that property can play at the heart of our human relationships. In response to the exhibition Apprendre à mieux se faner | The carefulness and the blade, Justine Skahan questions the social role that our yards and gardens can play in urban environments, and the importance of nature in our individual and collective psyche. In residence in the Project Room during the first weeks of the exhibition, she will work on new creations echoing these concerns.

Sunday to Friday: 1 to 5 p.m.
Thursday: 1 to 8 p.m.
Saturday: 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.



The Stewart Hall Art Gallery is located on the third floor of a beautiful home built by Charles MacLean in 1905. The building was acquired by the City of Pointe-Claire from May Beatrice Stewart for a symbolic $1 in 1954 and became the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre in 1959.

Vi Duncanson, who had been instrumental in founding the Centre, became its Administrative Director. She also got the ball rolling to open an art gallery in the Centre and was officially mandated to do so with help from Evan Turner, Director of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, Jean-Paul Morisset, Director of Extension Services at the National Gallery of Canada, Professor Winthrop Judkins of McGill University, and his wife, Helen Judkins. The Stewart Hall Art Gallery opened its doors to the public in 1963.

The MacLean residence was already an art gallery: well before the Gallery’s official opening, the attic space on the third floor was used to present exhibits.


Working mostly with contemporary art, the Art Gallery actively participates in developing Québec and Canadian modern art by both recognizing established artists and encouraging up-and-coming artists. Through its cultural mediation programs and educational activities (workshops, lectures, screenings and meetings), the Stewart Hall Art Gallery encourages the community to get involved and helps to make art accessible to everyone.

Historical mural in the Pointe-Claire Village


The artists of the ArtduCommun collective delved into in the Pointe-Claire history archives for inspiration to create a mural that combines visual representations of different eras. The omnipresence of Lake Saint-Louis, which acts as a common thread here, reiterates the importance of water in the local history. The nautical, village and agricultural scenes are snippets of the collective memory that will be revealed to passers-by by the end of summer.

The ArtduCommun mural artist collective was founded in 2006 by Jasmin Guérard-Alie and Simon Bachand. They have created over forty murals in and around Montréal, including several large-scale works.
