The participants of arbre/moi invite you to see the art they have created celebrating their love of trees. The connection between people and trees is the inspiration for this art and nature project organized by Morin Heights artist, Elizabeth Whalley. Over the course of a year the participants, who have come from many corners of the MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut and beyond, gathered in workshops and independently created artworks and texts.

Like a forest of trees, the participants are interconnected and yet each is unique.

Claudel Lacroix and Shirley Metka evoke family ties and a sense of place.

Sharon Goldberg and Marie-Françoise Condamin remember a loved one.

Jana Novy, Claire Contant and Jocelyne Annereau Cassagnol celebrate the vitality and evolving forms of trees. Marci Babineau and Léo Cóté, Rossy L. Fuentes and Holly Blenkhorn immerse us in the timeless life cycles of nature. Emma Bass, Kim Bertrand and Nadia Bertrand show the beauty and symbolic force of trees while Lilija Gedvila and Sylvie Duval explore their expressive abstraction. John Pohl, Monique Bélisle and Joanne Hayes share their close observations of trees. Rachel Gagnon and Brigitte Simon find the spirit of the tree in the wood itself while Lawrence Bass and Hélène Lemyre discover it in anthropomorphic trunks and branches. Carole Beaudet, Chantale Royer, Nuri Alcala, Diane Brodeur, Julie Marcoux, Mélanie Chartrand, Magali Ross, Andréanne Ouellet, Alain Durepos, Richard Petitclerc,

Lucy Lafontaine, Ginette Pelletier and Sandra Kowalski imaginatively channel the tree spirit.

Diane Viau, Louise Ladouceur and Jo-Anne Edger powerfully project the life force of the whole, dynamic forest.
