CLIENT EXHIBITION CLOSING: Michael Belmore’s MFA show at AXENÉO7 in Gatineau

Wednesday, August 14 was the opening for some of the Ottawa University’s MFA 2017 cohort which included Anishinaabe artist Michael Belmore ( on now at AXENÉO7 gallery in Gatineau.

Arriving before the crowds came, I was able to spend time in solitude with Michael’s newest body of work – Édifice.

Water and stone have a voice, they speak a language and have a history of conversation that extends well beyond our fleeting human existence.

The MFA show ends this weekend on Saturday, August 31. AXENÉO7’s hours:

Wednesday 12 – 9 pm
Thurday, Friday, & Saturday 12 – 5 pm

As always is the case with Michael, his work is aesthetically stunning as well as profoundly moving in the way it references natural forces.
