The Galerie D’Art Cookshire-Eaton is currently hosting the gallery of the late Louis-Pierre Bougie, featuring a body of work developed by the artist between 2008 and 2018.
A distinguished painter, draftsman and engraver, Louis-Pierre Bougie had his works in several Quebec galleries, as well as in the collections of the Bibliothèque nationale de Paris, the New York Public Library and the Newark Public Library among others.
This exhibition was conceived by Geneviève Bougie to celebrate the artist’s life and works; hosted in collaboration with the Cookshire-Eaton Art Gallery.
“He spent his whole life dedicated to art, so he was never a teacher or anything else; an artist completely invested in art. He spent several years, six months in Paris, six months in Montreal. His etching style is one he developed in Paris,” recounted Bougie.
