Benjamin Couture crisscrossed the roads of the province for 32 years, while he worked for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Quebec. His whole life long, he's dreamed of realizing great studies.

Today, a passionate sculptor, this brilliant man makes complex sketches and plans to guide his creations. He's developed unique shapes and considers the intellectual process which characterizes his art as more important than the result itself.

Benjamin Couture is a sculptor who enjoys giving shape to wood, whether to make little animals or abstract works. His creations remind us a little of those of other modern sculptors, such as Constantin Brancusi and François Pompon.

Vice-rector of research and teaching at the University of Sherbrooke, Edwin Bourget is an international leading expert in coastal system ecology.

This man of uncommonly imposing presence hides, nonetheless, a passion for painting, which he enjoys in private. Some of his canvases are rather abstract and represent emotions far more than concrete realities.

Although his talent is undeniable, Edwin does not wish to attract attention with his works; instead, he prefers to offer them to his friends and members of his family.

Edwin Bourget sometimes feels the need to take a break from his work by painting. Man of undeniable talent, he creates canvases often tinged with abstract art. The marked use he makes of color recalls Fauvism and Pointillism.
