Blue Met building: 5 short narrative films with no words.
The Convent: images projected on the wall of the church
La Gaillard: a fashion show of recycled clothing. (15h)
Then we will wander to a café and discuss what we’ve seen. Since all of these films and photos evoke narrative, yet with out a clear plot – it will make for some interesting interpretations. We can also tie all of this to the biblical narrative, how it is sometimes just as mysterious and open to various points of view.
So let’s meet outside the St-Henri metro (orange line) at 2 pm / 14h. If you want to come later, call my cell…everything is within easy walking distance.
Join 14 Artists from St. Stephen’s and Emerge Anglican Churches in their artistic, spiritual and communal exploration of this journey. The Stations will be open for viewing at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church on Good Friday from 11h to 19h pm, and on Saturday from 13h00 to 17h00. People can access it at their own timing and pace for personal pilgrimage but there will also be group meditations at 13h30 and 15h30 on Friday. A traditional set of prayers will be available to guide your meditation.
The Stations have been used by Christians since the 1500's as a way of commemorating and contemplating Jesus’ journey to the cross. The context is the historical fact that he was made to carry the instrument of his death, from the place where he was condemned to die, to Calvary where he died, and that he was taken down and laid in a tomb. The spiritual context is that today Jesus wants to use any means available to move our hearts to know his love for us.

Hello hello! This is Willemijn. This year has been filled with L'Abri for me, you know, the study-centre that
was founded by Francis Schaeffer? They have a lot of interesting lectures on
society-associated subjects & I've been going there regularly.
In April I had my first exhibition in a art-cafe
in Amsterdam, I sent along some pictures for you to look at! (Click on the picture at the right to make it bigger) The cafe is in a
YWAM building, and they keep with American morals, because I was censured.. . .
this was quite the experience! Here I was thinking I am such a good safe
christian artist (compared to some of the things people make) but the first
thing I put out on the table (ofcourse one of my bést things!) wasn't allowed to
be put on the wall!! Oh, & fun! An article of mine got published in the
January issue of CS News (Chrysalis Seed is a New Zealand based art-trust) check
it out on [ http://www.cs.org.nz/events.html ]
My article is about museums as temples for art.(Click on Jan/Feb 2006 and scroll to page 12)
ALways when I think of you, (which is quite
often, community is a funny thing he!) I am grateful, so grateful for having met
you, it's been inspiring. Thank you!
Also on June 8 Bernard will participate with the street artists from the St. James Centre in this annual Montreal all-night event, "NUIT BLANCHE SUR TABLEAU NOIR .The artists will be encouraged to express how the city inspires them, painting rue Mt. Royal under the theme of "All eyes on Montreal". As a follower of Jesus, Bernarde loves to participate with the street artists in events like these. It is his way of seeking the welfare of the city...to celebrate Montreal with his friends and affirm their artistic expression.
L'artiste canadien Brian Jungen, blockbuster de l'été au Musée d'art contemporain. Le gros show est celui de Brian Jungen. L'artiste, mi-Suisse, mi-Amérindien, est l'actuelle vedette canadienne dans le monde des arts visuels. Celui que la planète s'arrache ou presque. Il est vrai que ses squelettes de baleine (faits de chaises de patio en plastique), et ses masques -tribaux- (faits à partir de baskets Nike) sont spectaculaires. L'expo survole 10 années d'un travail soigné, dans le meilleur des cas fort cynique, dans le pire, un peux facil. (LaPresse - Jérôme Delgado)
Musée d'art contemporain est gratuite les mercredis de 18h à 21h.
