André Lapointe is one of the most admired and renowned sculptors in Atlantic Canada. A Quebec native, over his nearly 40-year career, LaPointe has been a professor in the visual arts department of the Université de Moncton since 1988 and has had a profound effect on the visual art and environmental sculpture landscape of the region. Since his first solo exhibition in 1984 in Gaspésie, his work has been presented throughout Quebec, in the Maritimes and internationally. In 2005, the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation awarded him the prestigious Strathbutler Prize. This large exhibition will present a retrospective of his sculptural and installation works.
