Céline Gendron is a native of the Eastern Townships. She did a DEC in Arts in Sherbrooke in the 1970s and a Bachelor’s degree in Visual and Media Arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal in the early 2000s, with an honorable mention. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions and has received honors for her work, including the first and second prizes of the jury of the Festivart of Freligshburg and of the Mont St-Hilaire Museum. Her work is part of several private and public collections in Canada and the United States. “I love working with old painting techniques in a contemporary context. I opt for a non-figurative language that combines drawing and painting. I use rich and vibrant colors as well as earth or monochrome colors. My surfaces offer spaces of silence and rest, and possible journeys into intimate depths. I try to express with sensitivity, breaths of life and feelings, like so many signs and expressions of the soul in its entirety and its uniqueness. I adhere to the energy and beauty present in everyone. “
