P.E.I.'s School of Performing Arts students ready for year-end showcase
CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — Students in the Holland College School of Performing Arts music performance program are preparing for their annual spring showcase.
NEW LONDON, P.E.I. — Gallery 18 in New London will feature an exhibition and sale of the original works of the late Thérèse D'Amour this spring.
The show will feature watercolours and oil paintings from the artist's estate, and is titled “Thérèse D'Amour – A Passion for Nature.”
D’Amour was born in 1921 in Matapedia, Que., and went on to study bioengineering, earning both bachelor of science and Masters degrees.
From an early age, however, she also maintained a passion for art. Although mainly self-taught, she would later attend workshops with artists, including Molly Lamb Bobak.
D'Amour died in O'Leary on Dec. 23, 2013, at the age of 92.
A studio painter best known for landscapes, her works will be represented in the Gallery 18 exhibition.
The show will open in May and continue throughout the 2017 season.
