MONTRÉAL, Nov. 12, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Quebecor is proud to present Compter le temps by Louise Robert, an exhibition of great beauty and power that combines painting and poetry, at its head office art gallery Espace musée. Louise Robert is known for her unique way of representing the passing of time in painting and in words. Her works are a burgeoning of colours, brushstrokes, impasto layers and scratches. The exhibition is open to all at Espace musée until February 21, 2020.
"We believe art is an essential expressive voice in our society," says Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor. "We have always been committed to promoting the work of talented Québec artists. With Espace musée Québecor, we wanted to contribute to the democratization of art by creating a space open to all, where the public, our employees and strollers in Old Montréal can discover or rediscover the work of Québec artists. Once again, the gallery can say mission accomplished with this beautiful exhibition by painter Louise Robert."
Louise Robert: Painting time for more than 40 years
A pharmacist by training and self-taught painter, Louise Robert began her artistic career in the mid-1970s. Very early in her career, she had solo and two-person exhibitions in major institutions such as the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (1980), Québec House Gallery in New York (1983), the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris (1983), the Musée d'art de Joliette (2003) and the Maison des arts de Laval (2007).

They hang in many private and corporate collections and numerous museums, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Montréal Museum of Fin, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée d'art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul and the Musée d'art de Joliette.
