Claudette Castonguay - Exhibition of New Work
10337 - 124 Street, Edmonton, Alberta.
June 2, 2018 until June 14, 2018
Please join us in welcoming beloved Quebec artist Claudette Castonguay for “Les Couleurs du Temps Qui Passe” a solo exhibition presented by the West End Gallery, opening Saturday June 2nd. The work of Claudette Castonguay exemplifies the phrase joie de vivre – from an afternoon cocktail party to relaxing with friends on the patio with music in the air, Castonguay’s paintings pull you in and convey a feeling of being light as air. Castonguay’s elegant, painterly style easily conveys the delight she feels while painting and communicates this to the viewer through wonderfully saturated colours and delicate brushwork. Warm, charming, and cheerful, Castonguay’s paintings invite the viewer to share in a wonderful world of her imagining where painted gardens offer beautiful fragrant bouquets to decorate tables and the hats of children playing. Exhibition continues through June 14. All Artwork subject to pre-sale. Claudette will not be able to attend the opening reception on Saturday, June 2. "I am fascinated by the play activity of creation and I like to think that the canvas will bring as much joy to the person who will choose it as I am experiencing when I paint it. I am diligent in my studio. When I stand before the easel, there is only this present moment that exists. These instants are precious, sometimes magical. What more could I ask for?"
