Lyse Charland Favretti: Dance of lights

Until September 3rd, 2023, stained glass takes center stage at MUMAQ in a retrospective exhibition tracing the entire career of Lyse Charland Favretti. The work of this Quebecois visual artist and master glassmaker is part of the international movement to redefine stained glass that emerged in the second half of the 20th century.

Lyse Charland Favretti : Dance of lights

Lyse Charland Favretti

Born in Montreal in 1948 and a graduate of the School of Fine Arts and UQAM in visual arts, specializing in engraving, Lyse Charland Favretti established PRODUCTION VERRE in 1981. This workshop focuses on the design, creation, and integration of glass windows, stained glass, murals, and glass sculptures.

Significant works will emerge from this workshop, with nearly thirty of them currently found in public buildings both in Quebec (such as the Du Collège metro station, the UNESCO Institute of Statistics, and the Westmount Square building in Montreal) elsewhere in Canada (Ontario, Nova Scotia) and abroad (Saudi Arabia).

Her works are installed in nearly twenty public buildings in the northern region of Quebec. From 1976 to 2022, Lyse Charland Favretti designed, created, and produced over 60 stained glass windows or integrated murals for private residential interiors.

Two temporary exhibition rooms will showcase the artist’s works. The Workshop section will unveil the secrets of glassmaking through sketches, drafts, tools, and raw materials.
