Coup de coeur of the jury at the Musée des beaux-arts de Mont-Saint-Hilaire as part of the group exhibition Le Grand Salon des Nuances Pluriels! It was the work WW Series - Ferris Wheel from my just-started new series that caught the jury's eye.



See Pascal’s work at the SMAQ at the Palais des Congrès for the Salon des Métiers d'art du Québec booth 633. This last show of my 2023 year ends this Sunday, December 17.
