FEATURED ARTIST - Armand Vaillancourt
Best known as a sculptor, Armand Vaillancourt has also been revealed through drawing, engraving and painting, exploiting the aesthetic possibilities of almost all techniques and materials. The artist expresses his ideas through his work, denouncing injustice, violence and racism. Close to the public and anxious to see young people develop their artistic potential and their freedom of expression, he has offered them, for fifty years, workshops of spontaneous creation.
Armand Vaillancourt was born in Black Lake in 1929. He studied at the Montreal School of Fine Arts. From the beginning of his studies in the arts, he seeks his way, observes the work of others, while wanting to distinguish himself.
While kneading clay, he discovered a passion for sculpture. From his very first creation, The Tree of Durocher Street (1953-1955), he explodes the framework of sculpture and the arts of his time, quickly becoming a legendary figure. He embraces all humanitarian causes and defends his convictions passionately. . Armand Vaillancourt is also a strong advocate for the cause of artists and the preservation of works of art, including sculptures, victims of time and, all too often, incomprehension of decision-makers.
Armand Vaillancourt has created more than 3,000 works. Among his monumental pieces are the monument against the war at Chicoutimi (1959); The Human, a sculpture commissioned by the School of Arts and Crafts of Asbestos (1963); Justice!, Sculpture-fountain against apartheid at the Quebec City Courthouse (1980); El Clamor, monument to the Latin American peoples in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (1985), not to mention the sculpture-fountain for the Embarcadero Plaza in San Francisco (1967-1971). During the 1990s, the artist tackled smaller scale works that tended to harmonize nature and sculpture. ,
Armand Vaillancourt received the prestigious Paul-Émile-Borduas Award, one of the Prix du Québec, in 1993, and several other artistic distinctions in Quebec, Canada and the United States.
On August 8th, Join us as Armand shares with us his artistic practice and creative life that spans over 60 years.
