Time: 5 pm-8 pm
Location: 1842 rue William, Montreal, QC
Louise Guimond is a Montreal-based visual artist. Following a long career as a fashion designer and costume stylist, her love of colour and texture led her to painting. Over the past several years, she has honed her skills and has created a unique visual language that melds figurative realism and abstraction.
Not constrained to a single medium, style or subject, Louise paints with oils and acrylics mixed with collage to create textural interest. Her creative process begins without a preconceived final result but instead, an image slowly emerges through multiple layers. These textured layers allow her to build movement, impromptu highlights and markings upon her subjects.

Louise Guimond's artwork can be viewed on her Instagram @louiseguimondart.
This exhibition will mesmerize you with a series of portraits inspired by the subtle sensuality of human expressions. Her portraits capture the mood of the subject, through a soft tilt of the head or a penetrating gaze. By doing so, Louise emotionally engages the viewer and draws them into a specific moment.
Please note, the meseum admission fees are waived for the opening night event, however, they will apply throughout the duration of the exhibition.
