LAVAL, QC, April 26, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ – Centre Laval is proud to announce the creation of Amalgame-Urban Gallery, a new and unique visual arts venue. Renowned artist Pauline Loctin is inaugurating this new gallery with her exhibition “Ancestrale”.
This new gallery, developed in collaboration with the Centrale des artistes, is the first initiative of its kind in a commercial mall setting, allowing Centre Laval to play a leading role in seeing new art venues developed for the Laval community. This venture enhances overall Centre Laval customer experience while positioning the mall as an ever-more dynamic player in the retail sector.
This unique concept is one of the key elements in the repositioning Centre Laval and Quartier Laval, two Cominar properties which will, in term, present a merged offer and gathering spaces for all.
With a masters of music in hand, Pauline Loctin is a seasoned cello player who discovered her passion for origami by accidently leafing through a book on paper folding and the art of origami. Her works, while minimalist and uniquely creative, boast a purposeful whimsical touch. She is the only artist to master this discipline in Canada.
Over the years, she has collaborated with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Keurig, Cover Girl and Veuve Cliquot champagne. Her work Black Wall was showcased at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
