Proud At OCAD U Art Show

Monday, April 9, 2018 - 11:00am to Monday, April 23, 2018 - 9:00pm

Proud at OCAD U coordinators, Casey Helm and Teddy Schaub curated this exhibition and here is their perspective on this art show:

The PROUD at OCAD U Exhibition features the work of LGBTQ+ identifying students here at OCAD. Art Exhibition spaces can be inaccessible spaces, especially for those whose identities intersect in different ways. The theme is simple: there is none! The participants were encouraged to bring in work they felt like showing off. PROUD is a community space and focuses on claiming our own space here at OCAD. Copies of the PROUD Community Zine are also available for free in the Learning Zone!

List of participants:

Casey Helm
Jazmin Cordon-Ibanez
Rachel Finlay
J. Lee Bertram-French
Heidi Ku
Abigail LaChapelle
Vincy Lim

On until April 23

Claude A. Simard Retrospective

Painting by Claude A Simard
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 9:00am to Sunday, September 3, 2017 - 9:00am

Québec City invites the public to visit an exhibition of works by Claude A. Simard (1943–2014), titled Painting Happiness, presented at the Centre d’interprétation historique de Sainte-Foy presently to September 3, 2017.

Claude A. Simard studied at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto from 1962 to 1966. Head of advertising for Maison Simons and founder of Groupe Communikart, Simard then carved himself an important niche in the art market and his works were shown in prestigious galleries in Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton.

Known for his important contribution to visual arts and design, Mr. Simard was received by the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1981, at the age of 38. He designed eight stamps for Canada Post, including two Christmas stamps (1983 and 1987) and one commemorative stamp, Blue Poppy, issued in 1997. The first retrospective exhibition of his works was held in 1991 at Villa Bagatelle in Quebec City, which was then presented by the City of Paris at Château de Bagatelle. Both events were well received. Since his passing in September 2014, numerous art collectors and lovers have attributed to Claude A. Simard the ability to sublimate reality.

This retrospective exhibition pays homage to the artist, who is known for his colourful depictions of floral garden scenes, landscapes, still lifes, and figures. It features 50 works as well as a few travel notebooks and significant creations in the field of graphic design. Divided into 10 areas, the exhibition delves into various aspects of Claude A. Simard’s life and the key themes that were close to his heart.

The Honorary President of the retrospective is Mr. Peter Simons.
