On Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of February, there was quite a lot of activity going on at the Beauchamp Art Gallery of Baie-Saint-Paul. (16, rue St-Jean Baptiste.)
Both Marie-Linda Bluto and Yvon St-Aubin were present at the Beauchamp Art Gallery and were more than happy to answer the customer’ s questions on their various techniques. All of the viewers were captivated by both of the artists’ work. Over the weekend, in front of all of the customers, Bluto worked on several small pieces (36X6), and St-Aubin finished a 24X30 painting entitled Souvenir du Temps D’ Une Paix.
This event was certainly an experience for the senses and what a sight it was for the eyes! Both artists work so differently. St-Aubin uses vigorous and energetic brushstrokes that well depict his paintings and the vibrant colours that he uses also captures the essence of his character. Bluto, on the other hand, uses paintbrush strokes that are as soft and sensual as are her paintings. Her colour scheme is also very representative of how gentle and sensitive she is.
The event that took place at the Beauchamp Art Gallery of Baie-Saint-Paul was certainly a rewarding experience for anyone who attended the live painting performance of both Bluto and St-Aubin. The paintings that the artists worked on can be seen and purchased at the Beauchamp Art Gallery of Baie-Saint-Paul located at 16, rue St-Jean-Baptiste and at one of the four Beauchamp Art Gallery of Quebec City located at 50, rue Notre-Dame.
