Louis Garneau Launches Book and Painting Exhibition
On October 23rd Louis Garneau launched his Thoughts book about life and business, from which profits will be given to the Petits Frères des Pauvres. On the same occasion, he opened a twelve-large-tableau series exhibition painted on printed fabric.
In his 333 Thoughts book titled " In Business, I Have Learned...", Louis Garneau presents various thoughts about business world and everyday life. These thoughts, tinged with his experiences throughout his cycling and business careers, will make you smile through your reading of this book, which is easy to read either in order or randomly.
Opening of the Exhibition
On display is a series of twelve tableaux recently painted on printed fabric. Every tableau is sold ($1000) and will be displayed until November 16th at the Galerie Louis-Garneau, located at 40, des Grands-Lacs in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures. Further to this event, the gallery will be available for the final year students of the Université Laval Faculty of Fine Arts, giving them the opportunity to show their creations to a mass audience. Since it is located in the heart of his factory in Saint-Augustin Industrial Park, it will allow Louis Garneau's employees to be introduced to modern art.
Petits Frères des Pauvres
It is essential for Louis Garneau to help our "Old Friends" who are too often excluded and forgotten. This is the reason why all profits gained from the thoughts book and tableaux sales will be given to the "Petits Frères des Pauvres".
