Quebec Art follows on the heels of Canadian Art


In case you missed it, there are a whole whack of Tom Thomson paintings hanging out in Russia. It made headlines from Halifax to Victoria, as there wasn't anything that struck me as being particulalry pertinent to the world here in Montréal, I didn't write anything about it. However, two weeks ago, Le Devoir wrote an article about how the Hermitage will be doing an exhibit on Riopelle in 2006.

I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall listening to the negotiations. Props and shout outs to Guy Cogeval, and Nathalie Blondil. My only question is if Jean Charest was able to make Quebec first, and best when it came to fixing out the Health Care System, why Line Beauchamp, couldn't have done the same thing for Quebec with regards to art? Swirls, drips and globs are way more interesting than a whack of landscapes.
