In Memoriam

Well-known artist and sculptor Ulysse Comtois, who taught in Concordia's Faculty of Fine Arts, died on July 10 in St. Hyacinthe at the age of 68. The Gazette's Alan Hustak, in an obituary, talked to friends and art critics, and drew a portrait of an unpretentious man who was nevertheless one of the pillars of the Quebec art scene, particularly in the 1970s. Comtois won the Paul-Émile Borduas Prize, and together with another Concordia art teacher, Guido Molinari, represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in 1968. One of his works will be on display in the front lobby of the VA Building from September 13-17, and a book of condolences will be available for signing.
