For immediate release



DENISE BUISMAN PILGER WILL REPRESENT CANADA AT THE

SALON DE LA SOCIETE NATIONALE DES BEAUX ARTS IN PARIS AT THE CARROUSEL DU LOUVRE


Montreal,  September 20, 2011 It is with a great pleasure that visual artist Denise Buisman Pilger, has recently learned that she was selected by the jury of the prestigious Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris (SNBA) to participate in Canada’s delegation to the annual Salon to be held in the Salle Le Nôtre at the Carrousel du Louvre, in Paris from 8 to 11 December 2011.


Her nomination by the SNBA jury is due to the consistent efforts of Montreal stone carver, Marie-Josée Leroux (Lerou, sculptor), Chief of delegation and representative of the association Com2Art in Canada, and its president in France, Ms Bénédicte Lecat.


Denise Buisman Pilger’s work reflects her love of photography, painting and travel. Taking major cities as her main focus point, she -creates cityscapes that are recognizable, yet somehow surreal.  Her works are a pastiche of architectural elements and city life, arranged at unusual angles, irregular scale and not necessarily in their true-to-life configuration.


Each year, the National Society of Fine Arts takes its show at the Carrousel du Louvre in the Salle Le Nôtre. This annual event hosts, in the Louvre, international established artists which includes a dozen foreign delegations that reveal in Paris the arts from all continents.


This is one of the most prestigious international exhibitions of contemporary art, and Canada is participating since 2004.


Thirty-six artists, painters and sculptors, are forming the Canadian delegation. They will travel to Paris in December and will have the privilege of attending the opening ceremony to be held under the honorary presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy.
