Exhibit: Loto-Quebec Collection -- 30 ans

Last week I visited the exhibit up in Loto-Quebec's exhibition space (perhaps some of you noticed the article last weekend in the Gazette). The exhibit celebrates 30 years of collecting by Loto-Quebec,one of the largest corporate art collections in the province, and is divided into sections, each panel curated by an invited luminary from the Quebec cultural scene. This is a large show, full of wonderful works by many of the Quebec artists you are familiar with.
Loto-Quebec's gallery is located just two blocks east of the McCord Museum, where we have our lectures, but most unfortunately it is not open on Tuesdays, so you would have to make a special trip down to visit the exhibition. Good news is that it is open on both Saturday and Sunday. Here is info for location and times (and, of course, some photos from the show):
