Showing until October 21
Who would have thought that simple irons could turn into a cat, a lunch box or a pumpkin? One thing is certain, the whimsical sculptures of Anne-Marie Sirois continue to enchant the visitors of La Fab. Comments are unanimous!
" What a delight! "
"You brightened my day! "
"An overflowing imagination! "
"I'll come back with my grandchildren, it's the perfect show to introduce them to the arts.
The artist herself says she takes great pleasure in creating her sculptures that often require the help of experts in metal processing. "If at first, I asked people around me and visited flea markets for my raw material, irons are now waiting for me at the door when I get to my studio." Anne-Marie has a studio at the Aberdeen Community Center in Moncton, which, according to the artist, is very similar to La Fab in its creative and warm atmosphere.
