Renée Dion

The Artists’ Circle is proud to present its virtual fall exhibition consisting of 58 artworks from 29 West Island artists.

Our December meeting will take place at 7 pm on the 15th. In lieu of our December pot-luck dinner, this year we will have a virtual meet-up and do a show and tell. Send your photos to our gmail account (not to everyone) by the 10th and we’ll do a presentation. We can take turns talking about what we’ve been working on. Looking forward to it!

Renée Dion comes from the advertising industry where she worked as a graphic designer and illustrator. In her commercial illustration projects, she has tamed watercolor.

Her favorite subjects are taken from nature and she explains it easily: "We paint well what we know well!"

She lives in the beautiful Laurentians region surrounded and inspired by nature where she paints plein-air.

Juan Cristobal Pinochet

Juan Cristobal Pinochet will be our presenter this month. He uses a few media and this time he’ll be working in acrylic. Nonetheless, whatever medium you use, the core information is transferrable and it’s sure to be a treat. He will be painting a landscape in a style he calls “expressive landscape”. He plays warms against cools and bumps up the intensity of the colours to make a stronger statement. He will be explaining that as he paints. Unfortunately, his website is offline while it’s being refurbished.
