Summer Fields, Michele Meredith

Boathouses #4, Heather Dubreuil
Shown here are some of the 200 works by 33 artists that will be on display at the annual Spring Show of the Hudson Artists Association.

Michele Meredith and Heather Dubreuil are pleased to have their recent work included in the show, which will feature a variety of media, including stained glass, sculpture, collage, fibre and mixed media as well as watercolour, acrylic and oil painting.

The vernissage happens on Friday evening, 7:30 - 9:30, and continues Saturday and Sunday, 10 - 5. A painting will be raffled off to benefit NOVA Hudson. Refreshments are available. Unframed works and greeting cards will also be for sale. On Saturday, from 1 - 3 p.m., Sue Rhodes will demo her scratchboard technique.

Please join us at the Hudson Community Centre, 394 Main Road, Hudson Quebec. We would love to see you there!


  1. Cheering you both on from Houston!! I couldn't find "vernissage" in my Webster's Dictionary...please give me the Canadian definition. :-) Love your work! Will your pieces be for sale or just for exhibition? Wishing much success!! Wish I could be there.

  2. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm, Venetta. Almost all the work at the show is for sale, though sales have been poor the last couple of years.

    I think the literal translation of "vernissage" is "varnishing". I seem to remember being told that in the studios of Paris, a special invitation was sent out to good clients and friends to come and see the work as it was being given its last varnishing before hanging in a formal exhibition. So it is used now to mean "opening reception", sometimes by invitation only, and usually with lots of wine! Which raises the question of just who is getting varnished or shellacked!

  3. Two great pieces. A pleasure to look at. Good luck with the show!

  4. You girls are so talented. I love the trio of pieces, Michele.
    Heather you are so on the right track at the moment with your style of minimalist interpretation. Best wishes for a very successful exhibition.
