Art is an artist’s own perception of the world
Roger Levac was born in Cornwall in 1946. Following his education at the Collège classique, he obtained a Masters degree from McGill. He has published an essay, short stories, and novels. In 1998, he received two literary awards: The Trillium Book Award and LeDroit’s. After 30 years teaching, he is now retired and enjoying his life-long hobbies.
“As a writer, I try to experience a deepening of life’s turmoil, and as a painter, its excitement.
Self-taught artist, I started working in a figurative style, doing landscapes, still lifes, human figures, mainly in oil. Working primarily in acrylic, I grew to appreciate abstract art which I found liberated colour and form. My interest in art comes from brother Paul Beaupré, who was influenced by the Refus Global movement.”
The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception on Sept. 19th, at 7:00 pm
The exhibition “Perceptions” is ongoing until November 1st, 2013
Gallery hours are Wednesday to Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
