ARTFUL BLOGGER: Adrienne Herron’s photos of ghostly trees and wild turkeys on exhibition in Old Chelsea

By Paul Gessell

Come see Gatineau Park as never before. I am referring to Adrienne Herron’s photo exhibition of forest scenes at Les Saisons coffee shop in Old Chelsea, a favourite stop for cross-country skiers going to and from Gatineau Park.

The park’s forests, as Herron captures them, are ghostly affairs, like images seen in a dream. These are, indeed, enchanted forests.

Adrienne Herron captures the splendour of wild turkeys in her latest exhibition.

The photos of the forest scenes are found on the ground floor of Les Saisons. Upstairs are splendid portraits of wild turkeys. Many of the photos were taken within walking distance of Herron’s Chelsea home.

Wild turkeys have a reputation for being vicious. But not with Herron. Perhaps it’s because Herron feeds them. Even wild turkeys know not to bite the hand that feeds them.

Those wishing to spend a day looking at art, rather than skiing, can visit two art galleries close to Les Saisons.

Le Fab, in an old rectory, is located at 212 Chemin Old Chelsea, right beside St. Stephen’s Catholic Church. The gallery regularly shows artists from the Outaouais. (more…)
