St-Laurent Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of images by local artists Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck. This show is titled Marvellous Realism and runs from June 28 to September 27, 2019.
In this interesting exhibit, the artists combine the traditional use of photography and painting with modern computer capabilities to enhance and create something unique for the viewer. For example, homes undergoing decay and abandonment due to the economic crisis are made beautiful using these techniques. Evanchuck's photography is thus enhanced with Lacelle's paint and brush, and then further developed with the use of computer image enhancement. Images were shot primarily in New Brunswick and in the Perth area of Ontario.
This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage, and support artists in their local community, as well as the St-Laurent Library.
