This season's local must-see is the exhibition, "In and Around Home" by Beaconsfield artist Susanne Strater, whose 37 pastels are on display at the Dollard Civic Centre's Galerie de la Ville, 12001 de Salaberry in DDO.
Many of Strater's landscapes evoke familiar scenes of the West Island and Montreal. I love her strong sense of composition and expressive use of colour. This is a show that will be enjoyed by all, even those friends and family who don't often frequent art galleries.
The show opens today, March 21, and runs until April 19. The vernissage is Sunday, March 22 from 1 to 3 p.m., and a free guided tour is offered on Sunday, April 5, starting at 2 p.m.
Gallery hours are
Tuesday and Wednesday, 12 - 4 pm
Thursday and Friday, 2 - 5 pm
Saturday and Sunday 1 - 4 pm (except the Sunday of the opening)
Free guided tours for groups may be arranged by calling 514-684-1012 ext 298
