Carton Confettis Web

An exhibition by the graduating students from the Ceramics, Fibre and Sculpture options of the DEC in Techniques de métiers d’art at Cégep Limoilou.

From May 29 to June 21, 2015
Opening on May 29 from 5 p.m.

Centre MATERIA and the Maison des métiers d’art de Québec will be presenting CONFETTIS3, an exhibition marking the end of the academic road for graduating students from the DEC in Techniques de métiers d’art (diploma of collegial studies in fine crafts) at Cégep Limoilou. Under the honorary presidency of Alexandre Taillefer, art collector and chairman of the board of administrators at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the opening will be held at Centre MATERIA on May 29 from 5 p.m.

Three years, three disciplines, and a wealth of discoveries and encounters materialise in this exhibition where talent and know-how are multiplied. Though often serious or very personal, the works are gathered around a festive and rallying theme, as a milestone on the journey of these emerging craft artists.

Alexandre Taillefer’s attendance at the opening on May 29, 2015 emphasizes the ambition of the graduating students as they embark on their career journey. Many prizes will be awarded during the evening to reward the most remarkable work by graduating students.

With this exhibition, Centre MATERIA wishes to start these emerging craft artists on a career path filled with passion and discovery.

MATERIA is 15 years old!

In September 2015, MATERIA will celebrate its 15th anniversary! Maintaining its status as the only artist-run center dedicated to fine crafts in Canada, MATERIA still represents excellence and innovation in its field. Moreover, MATERIA’s 2015 programming is perfectly in line with Craft Year, a Pan-Canadian festival designed to promote fine crafts as key actors of our nation’s culture.
