Travel SOUVENIRS de voyages
Artist René Rivard started drawing in earnest at 14 and has never stopped producing art. After teaching for five years, he studied fine arts at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (UQAM).
Various day jobs helped to pay the rent, these were mostly in the field of mental health with a special focus on services for the Deaf and
hard of hearing.
René loves to travel. He photographs landscapes, especially mountains which he then transforms into paintings.
The artist seldom exhibits his works and is thankful to Claude Jobin who facilitated this exhibition.
Join Rene and Claude at Shanghai Restaurant, Wednesday August 23rd 6pm – 10pm.
