Turn yourself into an art collector and help Les Impatients
This year, the SHDM has been invited to join the honorary committee of the seventh edition of Parle-moi d’amour Centre Wellington for the benefit of the Atelier des Impatients of Verdun.
Members of the SHDM community as tenants at the Monastère du Bon-Pasteur, a heritage property of the SHDM, the Impatients’ team is doing a remarkable job with people suffering from mental health problems by leading workshops of artistic expression. Offered for free in various locations in Montréal and the surrounding region, the Impatients welcome some 650 participants per week for creative activities that are supervised by artists or professional therapists. Through artistic practice, participants are called to socialize and break their isolation, thereby contributing to improving their quality of life.
In addition to their workshops, the Impatients have a gallery space in the Monastère du Bon-Pasteur to exhibit the works that are created during the workshops. There are also travelling exhibitions, publications, public readings and concerts, as well as a collection of more than 15,000 works of art by their participants.
All this work requires a lot of commitment, effort and love for the cause of mental health and art, but also a lot of money. This is why the Impatients organize every year silent auctions of works by participants and emerging and renowned artists as part of various exhibitions open to the public. The profits from the sale of these works make it possible to finance the activities of this organization, while giving an opportunity to a wider public to build a collection of works of art. It is an innovative way to democratize art while raising public awareness of the cause of mental health.
It is therefore with great pleasure that we invite you to reserve a date between May 1st and May 9, 2018, to visit the Parle-moi d’amour Centre Wellington exhibition (4932 rue Wellington, H4G 1X6) to enjoy the many works that will be shown and make a silent bid on your favourite. The exhibition and the silent auction will end on the evening on May 9 during which will be held a live auction of a dozen selected works, led by the spokesperson of the event, Chantal Lamarre, actress, columnist, host and Quebec writer.
Art lovers, aspiring collectors as experienced collectors, philanthropists or good Samaritans, this is an opportunity for you to participate in a beautiful evening for the benefit of a great cause, to treat yourself, to surprise a loved one, or even offer a nice gift to your mother on Mother’s Day. We are waiting for you! In the meantime, check out the online catalogue of the works that will be auctioned. You will find real treasures to hang on your walls that were created by emerging artists, established artists and participants in Les Impatient's workshops.
