REPÈRE : EXPO-VENTE LOTO-QUéBEC

From the perspective of a provincial program for the acquisition of artworks by Loto-Québec, Manif d’art presented L’Expo-vente Loto-Québec Repères in a commercial locale on rue St-Joseph from May 25 to June 10, 2007. The exhibition united the work of 20 professional artists from Québec City. A first of its kind in the national capital region, the exhibition brought together some of the area’s most important artists and further acted to stimulate the art market. Among the 20 works of art presented, Collection Loto-Québec acquired several, thereby encouraging public and private collectors to follow suite.

To support visual artists from every region of Québec and to diversify acquisitions within its collection, in 1985 Loto-Québec developed a provincial “show and sale’ program. Participating cultural groups and institutions are invited to organize group exhibitions of important artists from their region. Collection Loto-Québec then purchases some of the work shown, stimulating the art market. Not only does the program enable artists from every region of Québec to become a part of important collections but it also raises awareness among local businesses with regard to professional artistic creation in their region and encourages the acquisition of art on their part.
