Vernissage of painter and legendary international movie star Tony Curtis



    MONTREAL, Aug. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - GALERIE MX reveals the works of art from
TONY CURTIS starting Friday August 22nd. The Vernissage with TONY CURTIS
present at the gallery will be held on Monday August 25th at 5:30 pm.
    The exhibition goals, for one part, are to discover the many talents of
international movie legend TONY CURTIS, and on the other hand, to educate the
public on the cruelty towards the horses. Since the 1980s, Curtis has had a
second career as a painter. He has his star in Hollywood's Walk of Fame and a
slew of honours including the French Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des
Lettres.
    TONY CURTIS and his Wife Jill are invited to present their movie "Jill &
Tony Curtis, The fight for dignity". The Montreal World Film Festival pays
tribute to Tony Curtis for his lifetime achievement.

    GALERIE MX is a major Montreal venue for displaying visual art. Its
mission is the promotion of local and international creative talent. Founded
only two years ago, GALERIE MX is already among Montreal's top contemporary
art galleries. Located in the international quarter, it has been looking for
artists that have gone beyond the technique, gestual and composition of the
norm. According to François Lauzon, GALERIE MX co-owner: "Even though all of
these elements are essential to the quality of the work, they remain secondary
to the artist if they are without soul and a unique style".
    Recently, with the collaboration of artist NIKO: In honor of the 10th
anniversary of V-Day, GALERIE MX was proud to present the readings of Eve
Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" under the direction of Joel Legendre. With
Special guest stars Ginette Reno, Tara Spencer-Nairn, Eva Avila, Kim D'Eon,
Sophie Grégoire, Patsy Gallant, Nathalie Lauzon, Marie-Josée Turcotte, and
Geneviève Saint-Germain.
