Would you like to witness a part of
the creative process? LE VIVOIR provides visitors with this
opportunity thanks to the workshops set up behind partly windowed
areas. Discover the techniques and know-how that are needed for
particular crafts and meet the artists. Six dexterous artists
occupy the workshops on the first floor: renowned sculptor
André-Médard Bourgault, a major figure in the region’s dynamic
arts scene; Judith Dubord, gifted ceramist and glass-maker;
Christian Michaud, a wood-carver whose works evoke depth and
refinement; Véronique Palin Vernier, specializing in detailed
leather art; Dominique Beaupré St-Pierre, an artist who
incorporates glass into living works of art; and Chantale
Bouchard, expert in the art of linocut printing and carving.
The huge art gallery store on the
second floor is the place to discover the works and handmade
objects of close to a hundred Quebec artists and craftspeople. And
don’t miss the exhibition that chronicles the creation of walking
sticks by 70 artists – authentic pieces of art that are a
reflection of their creators!
Get ready for thrilling moments that
may just surprise you! LE VIVOIR includes a space for
live artistic performances, both indoors and outdoors. Music,
dance and singing complement the works of art and pay tribute to
the various forms of craft.
