Concours Bourses Jeunes Artistes Danielle Ouellet

LE RETOUR DES BOURSES JEUNES ARTISTES DANIELLE OUELLET

La Malbaie, lundi 22 janvier 2018 – Pour une quatrième année consécutive, le Musée de Charlevoix est heureux d'annoncer le retour du très attendu concours artistiques « Bourses Jeunes Artistes Danielle Ouellet » qui aura pour thématique : « Des oiseaux de rêves et de plumes » !

Les Bourses Jeunes Artistes Danielle Ouellet

Ce concours est l’opportunité pour de jeunes artistes en herbe de la région de gagner l’une des onze bourses d'une valeur allant de 100$ à 250$, offertes gracieusement par deux mécènes connues de la région, les docteurs Danielle Ouellet et Jean-Luc Dupuis.

« Jean-Luc et moi sommes très interpellés par la jeunesse charlevoisienne. Nous essayons de nous impliquer du mieux que nous le pouvons et souhaitons contribuer aux soutien des jeunes que ce soit au niveau de la santé, du sport…mais aussi de l’art. Nous sommes enchantés et fiers de pouvoir offrir cette opportunité aux jeunes d’ici, qui vibrent pour les arts, de se découvrir pleinement d’un point de vue artistique et créatif.  »
- Danielle Ouellet

Les jeunes auront également la grande chance de rencontrer l’artiste porte-parole des Bourses de cette année, Jimmy Perron, de diverses façons dont lors de la tenue d’un atelier-conférence public qui se tiendra le dimanche 18 février 2017, de 14h à 16h, au Musée de Charlevoix.

Artiste multidisciplinaire autodidacte, Jimmy Perron est originaire de l’Isle-aux-Coudres et bénéficie aujourd’hui d’une renommée internationale!

« Je suis enthousiaste à l’idée de prendre part à ce projet qui célèbre l’art et la création auprès des jeunes de notre région. Les jeunes ont un avantage que nous, les adultes, n’avons pas, celui de la spontanéité. Ils ne sont pas encore « biaisés » par les aléas de la vie et les « barèmes » du milieu artistique. Ils peuvent encore jouir d’un instinct de création pure et, c’est une opportunité qu’ils doivent absolument saisir! »

Retour d'une oeuvre de Clarence Gagnon

The return of a Clarence Gagnon's artwork

« PAYSAGE DE CHARLEVOIX »,
A STORY WITH THE MUSEUM OF CHARLEVOIX
THAT BEGUN 30 YEARS AGO !

The Musée de Charlevoix is ​​very pleased to announce the return of its Clarence Gagnon's model cardboard for hooked rugs "Paysage de Charlevoix", sent to be restored in 2014 but having been acquired more than 30 years ago!

ITS STORY OF ACQUISITION
Discovered in 1984 by François Tremblay (then, Managing Director of the Musée de Charlevoix) in the ancestral home of the Bolduc, this cardboard was in a pitiful state and required, according to the authentication report issued in 1990, "a major restoration intervention ".

Unidentified but apparently originating from the famous artist Clarence Gagnon, it was thus fundamental to first authenticate it. The work was finally awarded to Clarence Gagnon as a result of a long process carried out by many specialists and spread over a period of five years (1985 to 1990).

Measuring 122 centimeters in height by 183 centimeters in width, it would have been designed in 1924 to serve as a model cardboard for Madame Hermel Bolduc (Rosia Côté), artisan of Baie-Saint-Paul, in order to produce a crocheted rug.

ITS RESTORATION
The restoration request was made in October 2013, but it is only in 2014 that the restoration has actually begun. Originally, 200 hours of work had been planned, but ultimately, it took 313 hours of painstaking work by the restorer Patricia Bufe, a specialist in works on paper.

It is important to note that the Ministry of Culture and Communications makes available to the private museums, recognized and supported financially, a bank of 4,400 hours offered for the catering service. Access to restoration is therefore limited and the Musée de Charlevoix must select with great reflection the works corresponding to its mission that will be submitted to the selection committee of the Quebec Conservation Center. In general, the artists in folk art of the pioneer group of Charlevoix are prioritized and whose works are in a particularly deteriorated state and whose heritage interest is of great importance.

Here are some of the works of the Museum that have benefited from the services of the Quebec Conservation Center :

  • Two paintings by Simone-Mary Bouchard (one is currently under restoration, and the other is exhibited in our permanent exhibition since return of restoration)
  • The coat of arms of the City of La Malbaie made by Louis Riverin (currently displayed at the Town Hall of La Malbaie)
  • The bellows of the Riverin forge (despite a complete restoration, traces of mold remain, not allowing to leave the bellows in the open air).

CLARENCE GAGNON (1881-1942)
A native from Montreal, Clarence Gagnon was charmed by the Charlevoix region in the early 1900s. He is well known, both in America and Europe, and has played a fundamental role in the history of preservation of Artistic heritage of the region by creating a link between crafts, popular artists and professional artists.

Pictures needed!

THE MUSEUM OF CHARLEVOIX IS LOOKING
OF YOUR OLD PHOTOGRAPHS!

As part of her upcoming major exhibition on women from Charlevoix, the Musée de Charlevoix is ​​looking for photographs featuring women in their community. The photographs must have been taken between the years 1860 and 1960.

This exhibition is a tribute to these local women, who were teachers, nurses, housewives, entrepreneurs, students, bachelors, heads of family, etc.

Although the Museum already has several photographs in its archives, we wish first and foremost to present your women, your photos, your memories. We are therefore appealing to the people of Charlevoix to contribute to our future exhibition.

The Museum wishes to cover their youth, their marriage, their work, their family life and the great moments that marked their life (Depression of the 1930s, World Wars, etc.) and what better way to illustrate the whole by images from YOUR albums!

The photos must be hand delivered to Mrs. Julie Côté, curator of the Musée de Charlevoix, or sent by e-mail (in high resolution) to conservation@bellnet.ca, by Friday, March 3, 2017.

In the hope of receiving many entries to make this exhibition a success but also, and above all, a tribute to the women here, we warmly thank the contribution of the Charlevoix population to this request.
