Carole Desgagné has participated in several symposia in Quebec since the year 2000. She has several group exhibitions to her credit in Quebec and in France. She exhibits permanently at “La Marée Montante” in St Laurent, at Ile d'Orléans and at the Riverside Gallery in Wakefield. In 2009, she exhibited at the TORONTO ART EXPO in Toronto. In December 2011, she participated in an exhibition at the “Carrousel du Louvre” in Paris, following a selection from the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. She also exhibited in “Berre-les-Alpes” (near Nice) in April 2012 at the invitation of the Canadian consulate. In 2013, it was an exhibition at the Ward-Nasse Gallery in New York, then in 2015, at the gallery-library of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts during Rodin's 2015 exhibition.
She entered the MONDIAL ART ACADEMIA in 2018 and won the SILVER MEDAL in sculpture at the beginning of 2019. Long before that, she was the winner of numerous prizes and distinctions including the SILVER MEDAL during her participation in an exhibition at “Gruge” in Belgium, the ANNEXAIR SCHOLARSHIP, the GRAND PRIX SOCRATE and the PALMARÈS Prize at the “Académie Internationale des Beaux-arts du Québec”, the PREMIER GRAND PRIX in sculpture during the “Cercle des Artistes” competition exhibition Painters and Sculptors of Quebec.
The artist always seeks to evolve in her art. Her reflections led her to work with concrete which was a great discovery. Concrete is noble and it crosses the years very well. Her new sculptures are a marriage of concrete, aluminum rod and bronze shards. Recently, she added glass and its bases are stones which come from the Bay of Fundy. Ultimately, her work has a more contemporary appearance. However, she still likes to create sculptures as much as she does in bronze.
The last 5 years, she has returned to painting from which she takes a lot of pleasure and satisfaction from. She thus finds another way of expressing herself. She has a lot to say and it is through her creations that she transmits them to the spectators, either through her sculptures or her paintings.
