The Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery is full of spring colour and summer joy this month as the exhibition of five renowned and celebrated Acadian artists – one sculptor and four painters – share their art with our community. The art works are on loan to the gallery through their art dealer, Daniel Chaisson, of the gallery ART/ARTIST in Dieppe. From the playful descriptions of life on the Acadian shore in the work of Yvon Gallant, to the vibrant dynamism of the palette knife abstractions by Louise LeBlanc, stories abound in the art of these five artists. Together their narratives explore and describe humorous moments, acknowledge history, ephemeral states, balancing acts and decisive moments. The power and impact of colour, textures and gesture are vital means of expression for the artists, whether they are investigating their world, their imagination or their process. The only sculptor in the show, Marie Hélène Allain,most famous for her monumental stone works, is presenting six sculptures from a series of 35, that are assembled from rock, alder wood, copper and bronze. Tall, figure-like constructions, acknowledge the history of the alder tree in the development of Acadian society while talking about her faith and the place of the individual in community.
