Thérèse D'Amour exhibit
Gallery 18 in New London has announced 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 BSc and a Master's degree. From an early age Thérèse maintained a passion for art. Writing in 1992, she 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, PEI on December 23, 2013, at the age of 92.
Thérèse D'Amour — A Passion for Nature will be available for viewing on May 19 at 2 pm. The exhibition and sale at Gallery 18 will continue through the 2017 season.
