Gérard Galliano 1939 – 2019

There are thins for which you would never want to do anything;  we learned of the death of Gérard Galliano, our friend, our colleague on the board of directors for several years.

An overwhelming cancer won, while this artist, this manager still had good years before him to spread his enthusiasm, his skills, his taste for life in one word.  

La Maison des Arts sadly acknowledges this unexpected death, and offers its deepest condolences to all his family, especially his wife, Charlotte, so involved with us at La Maison.

Mrs Claire Vaillancourt 1928 – 2018

It is with sadness that we learned of the death in December 2018 of Mrs. Claire Vaillancourt (born Fournier July 17, 1928 – December 16, 2018)

Mrs. Claire Vaillancourt, wife of the late Raymond Vaillancourt, died at the end of a long illness.

She was the founder of the figure drawing of life model at the MARS and administrator of workshops and the night of painting for more than fifteen years.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family
