UMCE Museum features artwork of Claude Picard through September

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — The Madawaska Historical Museum presents from June 20 until September 29, 2019, the exhibition Retrospective Claude Picard.

To mark the opening, you can discover the artistic and historical exposure to the piano of Nicholas Roy. The evening will be held Thursday, June 20, from 17 am to 19 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

The exhibition of the late Claude Picard consists of three major works available in gift by Eudists Fathers of Quebec, and offers a variety of drawings, paintings and gouaches of the Madawaskayan artist. The public will have access to all summer from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am to 16 pm.

Also featured at the museum is the linotype, an invention alphanumeric keyboard once used by Le Madawaska. These  imposing machines revolutionized publishing by enabling small workshops to capture important texts in short time frames, and allowed, around 1900, the development of the daily press.

The Madawaska Historical Museum is part of the University of Moncton, Edmundston Campus (UMCE). It has a permanent exhibition, an exhibition of Aboriginal artefacts and exhibitions. It aims to interpret the essence of the Madawaska region through its collection, its programs and activities.
