Upcoming fun this autumn… We are very excited to announce that we will be part of the official programming for Culture Days / Journées de la culture, September 27-29, 2013.

Photography, painting, and mixed media artists are collaborating to reflect upon the unique 9th storey, Fleurbain view of downtown Montreal. The work in this group exhibition reflects the experience of looking out… as we look out, we look in.

List of artists to be announced mid-September… Stay tuned!
Hours for the exhibition during Culture Days:

Friday Sept 27 12-5pm
Saturday Sept 28 10-5pm, and a vernissage/celebration 6-9pm
Sunday Sept 29 12-6pm

While visiting during daytime hours, as a part of Culture Days, we are offering a chance for you to make your own piece of artwork that is inspired by our view.

The following Saturday (October 5) we will be hosting a poetry reading in collaboration with this exhibition. Stay tuned for that, too!

Fleurbain is located at 460 St Catherine West, unit 917.

This month was something of a “Poetry” month at Fleurbain. We hosted our first ever literary event, Open Mike Poetry Night (with no Mike) last weekend. We enjoyed original poetry, read by their authors. We sipped some fine herbal tea. We munched on ginger cookies. We all met new creative people, and new ideas and thoughts about collaborations were hatched, just in time for pre-Spring.

Jeffrey Mackie, a Montreal poet and literary radio host on CKUT, read some of his work. I managed to record some of it with the help of my trusty little smart phone. You can enjoy Jeffrey’s work for yourself:

The idea to host a poetry reading was inspired by the current art exhibition, Poetry, which is a collection of paintings whose structures were based on poetic formats. This is all my own work. I am going to be there this weekend from 3pm-6pm Saturday and Sunday for Gallery Hours, if you would like to drop in and say “Hello!” at some point.

Stay tuned for more stuff happening at Fleurbain… next weekend will be a new group show vernissage, Art and Architecture. Featuring works by Denise Buisman Pilger, Marc Chabot, Naomi Frangos, Jennifer Hamilton, Keivan Khademi, and Kimberley Mok… this is sure to be an amazing and life-altering exhibition!

The other day I made a three-minute walk-about film of my exhibition “Poetry”. I had wanted to share the experience of walking through the exhibit, as well as the photos of individual works, online. Here it is:

The show is on until March 1st. Keep your eyes open for an announcement about an upcoming poetry-reading, as well as a simple book-binding workshop… and indeed, the rumours are true. Iggy (my cat) will publish a chap-book of his Catku that will soon be available! –Natasha Henderson

Fleurbain is located in downtown Montreal, at 460 St Catherine West, unit #917. Gallery hours are 3pm-6pm, Tuesday through Sunday, or by appointment.
