Rita Letendre – Vitality June 3 – 29, 2017
Opening reception June 3 from 1 – 4 pm
Rumi Galleries is proud to present a selection of paintings by critically acclaimed Canadian artist Rita Letendre in the lead up to her retrospective exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. No stranger to change, Rita Letendre’s work has transitioned throughout her career. Influenced by the prominent Quebec artist groups Les Automatistes and Les Plasticiens, Letendre felt restricted in her early work. Wishing to express herself more freely she set out on her own, harnessing her powerful energy though the use of oils, acrylics and pastels in conjunction with unique tools such as the airbrush. This exhibition will present a selection of paintings from Letendre’s career with a particular focus on the 1960s and 1970s.
