Thérèse D’Amour – A Passion for Nature
Gallery 18 in New London, P.E.I., is pleased to announce the opening of its headline exhibition and sale for the 2017 season. The show is titled, Thérèse D’Amour – A Passion for Nature, and features more than 40 original works from the artist’s estate.
Thérèse was born on August 20, 1921, in Matapedia, Quebec. She studied Bioengineering – earning both a B.Sc. and a Masters degree. However, from an early age she also maintained a passion for art. Writing in 1992, Thérèse said as a child her “favorite game was drawing.” Although mainly self-taught, Thérèse attended workshops with many artists including Molly Lamb Bobak. Thérèse D’Amour died in O’Leary, P.E.I., on December 23, 2013, at the age of 92.
Thérèse D’Amour – A Passion for Nature will be available for viewing on Friday, May 19th, at 2:00 PM. The exhibition and sale at Gallery 18 will continue through the 2017 season.
“My work tries to capture aspects of my world-overview. I particularly love trees, their shapes, their character, their revelations of our physical world.
Even when not present in one of my works, to me their absence is heard. They always line the path to where I want to go.” – Thérèse D’Amour (1921-2013)
