The photo exhibit “Arctic Wildlife Encounters” on display at the Galerie Port-Maurice in Montreal

(Version française de ce texte)

Hello all!

Last Friday, I spent the day at the Galerie Port-Maurice in Montreal for the installation of the photo exhibit “Arctic Wildlife Encounters”. This municipal art gallery, founded in 1979 by the city of Saint-Léonard, is located in the hall of the municipal library at 8420 boulevard Lacordaire.

The exhibition includes 20 photographs by Pierre Bélanger, Robert Gravel and France Rivet representing 15 species living north of the 60th parallel. It runs until 19 January 2014. Admission is free.

Here are some pictures taken during the installation. A big thank you to Charlotte Badin, cultural events coordinator, for all her work.

 The installation begins with the section on marine mammals.

The installation of the exhibit description gave us a hard time but with patience and meticulousness, we succeeded!
