For a glimpse of the vernissage of the Wegner-Jensen show, please visit YouTube.

Studio Georgeville, in collaboration with Mobilier Design Georgeville, hosted a show of the internationally known Danish modern furniture designer  Hans Wegner (1914-2007) in the spring of 2011.

Hans Wegner was one of Denmark's most original modern furniture designers, and this was the first-ever solo show in Quebec of his work. All pieces were for sale and  represented the broad scope of Wegner's furniture, with both classic and hard-to-find pieces being offered. 

Studio Georgeville also displayed new work by  Niels Jensen, who credits Hans Wegner as one of his early inspirations. Wegner was a friend of Niels's late father, architect Kris Krogh Jensen, and Niels grew up surrounded by Wegner furniture.

Lake Memphremagog has long inspired artists. Among them is spoken word performer Kathy Fisher, whose family has inhabited the lakeshore around Ritchie Point and Gibraltar Point for several generations. Kathy's spoken word piece ice ships, which evokes ice breakup on the lake,  won the Spring Fever Spoken Word Poetry competition sponsored by the Calgary International Spoken Word  Festival and the Calgary Herald  in 2010.
