MRC exhibits 40 years of ‘evolving, experimental’ artwork: Beaudry 

The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent’s Alfred-Langevin Cultural Hall will launch its 2023 season with the exhibition, Retrospective, featuring the works of the late Marie-Hélène Beaudry.

In this first exhibition of the year, the MRC offers a sampling from over 40 years of exhibitions presented by the artist in New York, Venice, and Montreal. Viewers will discover some of the questions she asked – and the answers her art offers in ways that remain relevant.


Whether it is through the works of the Embody series or those of the Trimorphism, Beaudry explored various subjects such as the energetic currents of heaven and earth, the reality of the senses, emotion and memory, respect for nature, a sense of symbolism, and more.

In the studio, Beaudry painted and experimented very freely. A curious and fresh eye led her to explore not only countless subjects, but also to develop an “evolving experimental” technique that was nonetheless tightly disciplined. According to her, it is within such discipline that a freedom of expression resides; that helps explain the different mediums she used, such as oil painting, photography, and sculpture.

The opening vernissage of Retrospective will take place on Sunday, January 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Alfred-Langevin Cultural Hall in Huntingdon. The exhibition will continue until February 19 and will be open every Saturday and Sunday, from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free. Viewing during the week is by reservation only at 450-264-5411 ext. 238.
