MONTREAL, April 12, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - For the third consecutive year, the Collection Loto-Québec is pleased to announce its partnership with Papier, Montréal's contemporary art fair featuring works of art on paper, which will take place from April 12th to 15th under the Big Top at the heart of the Quartier des spectacles. A unique event in Québec that showcases works of art on paper exclusively, Papier 12 features works by many artists represented by 38 Montréal, Québec and Canadian galleries.
It should be noted that much of the Collection Loto-Québec is made up of works on paper. In fact, the Collection was created following a national print contest in 1979 and, over the years, it has acquired many other works on paper. This year, it will be presenting about fifteen of its works at Papier 12.
Papier 12 is a dedicated venue where professionals, art connoisseurs, members of the artistic community and newcomers alike can discuss and exchange ideas. The event's patron is businessperson and well-known contemporary arts benefactor Dr. Diane Vachon, and returning host Catherine Pogonat will once again be drawing the public's attention to the venue.
