Th
e exhibition presents a collection of Olivier’s works from 1983 to 2022, along with various information on the art of pastel, the tools used, the papers, and the different properties of pastels.

“Being an artist is a job. One must have the ability to progress and discover the unexpected in one’s craft. Seeing the evolution of one’s work over the years is very important, interesting, and instructive,” explains Olivier. “This evolution takes place on the canvas or drawing paper, as well as in one’s mind, throughout their life. To communicate emotion, to make people think, to elevate the soul in the contemplation of a work of art is a privilege,” she adds.

This exhibition is both a retrospective of the artist’s work and a tribute to her husband, Gilles Roux, who has accompanied and supported her over the years. During the month of March, a selection of Olivier’s oil paintings will also be on display at the Little Green Library in Huntingdon and the Ormstown library.

The exhibition at the Alfred-Langevin Hall will continue until April 2, where Olivier’s work canbe viewed on Saturday and Sunday, from 1 to 4 p.m. and throughout the week by reservation.
