À marée haute - Carol-Anne Pedneault at the !llustre Gallery in May!!

The !llustre Gallery and the artist Carol-Anne Pedneault are happy to invite you to the vernissage of the exhibition À marée haute, on Thursday, May 6th, 2010, from 6:00 pm. À marée haute is the first solo exhibition of the artist. The exhibition gathers a dozen large size illustrations resulting from an exploration inspired by the river which dances in front of her window everyday, in parallel with the contemporary dance which inspires her just as much. For the occasion, her accomplices and muses, Gabrielle Desgagnés (from Iles-aux-Coudres as well) and Sophie Breton, which both count among the emerging talents in contemporary dance in Montreal, agreed to pose for Carol-Anne. On a day of cold and big winds of April, they met in at the tip of the end of the island, at high tide, for a photography session more that inspiring! It is based on these images that the presented illustrations were realized. A mixture of body in movements and sea in movement... Careful cause therefore, the tide will be at its highest on Sainte-Catherine street on May 6th 2010. You’ll even be treated to a short contemporary dance performance. Hope to see you there!
