What a treat for residents and visitors to Knowlton, Lac Brome, to have such amazing artists presenting their original arts in the region. Sutton has always been a hot-bed of artistic expression in the Eastern Townships and this new featured show highlights what is so great about the Quebec Arts Scene in and around Knowlton. Sutton is only 30 minutes drive from Knowlton and is a choice spot for tourists who enjoy the hospitality and funky offerings of the town of Sutton.

For its first exhibition of the year, Arts Sutton Gallery is proud to present recent works on paper by Arthur Desmarteaux and Allison Moore, two young Montreal artists.

They produce their work using several different techniques, including photo etching, silkscreen, woodcut, linocut, digital printing and waterless lithography. Some works combine several different techniques. The art of Desmarteaux (a pseudonym of Étienne Rochon) is stylistically related to comic books and cartooning, but also to graffiti. "As a witness of our times, I convey my perceptions of current events and international conflicts with zesty humour. My drawings sometimes contain references to theatre, like a kind of burlesque fable," says Desmarteaux. His works have an anti-establishment flavour and are sometimes aggressive but always playful. They have been shown at the 13th Biennale international biennale de la gravure et des nouvelles images at Sarcelles, France and at the 5th Biennale internationale d’estampes de Trois-Rivières. The artist lives and works in Montreal.

Allison Moore Artwork. Image from Arts Sutton. Thank-you!Originally from Victoria, British Columbia, Allison Moore has pursued her studies in the visual arts in Montreal, Ecuador and England. She is particularly interested in the connections between the sciences and visual art. Titled “A story of life or what I have been told” her works present fantastical animal creatures in a setting that strangely resembles mythological scenes of animal origins. As a complement to her works on paper, she is also presenting a video clip. Allison Moore is very active in her community and has been involved in many creative projects, primarily working with video and puppet theatre. She lives and works in Montreal.

The show runs until February 8, 2009. The Arts Sutton Gallery is located on 7 Academy Street in Sutton and is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
