The Clarence-Rockland Art Gallery is located on the main level of the Cultural and Recreational Complex (YMCA), 1525 du Parc Avenue. The Gallery is open during Clarence-Rockland YMCA regular business hours and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free.

Gallery exhibitions feature the work of local artists working in all types of media. The Gallery presents a total of approximately 10 exhibitions annually, each of which lasts approximately four weeks.

A public gallery is a forum for the exploration of diverse ideas. The City of Clarence-Rockland supports exhibits that are inclusive of our diverse community, including ancestry, ability, age, culture, gender, language, race and sexual orientation.

November artist - Lise Guindon

I first studied photography at Ryerson University but I have since turned to painting as a means of expression. I have been painting for many years and what is most important to me is to translate my feelings into images and produce paintings that will maybe speak to other people.

To express myself, I like to try different styles and I make use of available techniques to create lively and colorful paintings. More recently, I have used almost exclusively acrylic paint and taken advantage of its fluid and transparent properties. Most of the paintings shown here have been produced in the last two years.

I can be reached at liseguindon@gmail.com

Photo Gallery: Lise Guindon EN will appear here on the public site.
