Guest curator : Annie Molin Vasseur

Montreal-based curator Annie Molin Vasseur has selected recent works of five GNO members in function of an underlying theme for this travelling exhibit, which seeks to better develop critical and conceptual reflection among the participating artists and to afford them the opportunity to reach new audiences.

Colette Jacques

Colette Jacques (Larder Lake) has been working full-time as a visual artist since 1986. A multidisciplinary artist, her work explores the mediums of performance, painting, sculpture, multimedia and installation. Propelled by the discovery of her algonquin ancestry, her artistic pursuits are intimately related to her heritage. Her work has been been shown in Ontario, Québec and the United States.

Artist Profile


LaGaan lives and works in Bromont, in the Eastern Townships. She has been committed to her art for over 20 years. She creates works of arts for the outdoors, for public or private gardens, for exhibition grounds and for interior living spaces. In the past, she has worked with wood sculpting, as well as with bronze casting and smelting. She now devotes her time to the complex assembly of bones and horseshoes by giving them a new purpose, in an artistic sense. Her true source of inspiration derives from these materials, as they are, in their true form.

Colette Laliberté

Colette Laliberté’s idea-based practice encompasses drawings, digital prints, paintings, projections and site-specific wall works. She links her work with the ideology that grouped Malevich, Lissitzky and Moholy-Nagy; an ideology grounded in their belief in the future, and a utopian view of art as a universal language with the power to instil change. She owes the genesis of her work to this legacy. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec Laliberté moved to Toronto in 1985 following her residency as Young Artists in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts. She earned a BFA from UQAM University and an MFA from Windsor University. Her works have been exhibited in numerous solo, duo and group exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Laliberté has also participated in residencies in France, Spain, New York, and most recently at The Durham Gallery in Stouffville, Ontario and Duntara Newfoundland.
