The Kirkland Artists' Association (KAA) is composed of artists and visual art enthusiasts from Kirkland and other West Island communities. Currently the Association has 50+ members of aspiring to professional artisits. Since its inception in 1983, the KAA has been committed to promoting creativity through a variety of activities including; guest speakers, still life and live model workshops, illustrations of different media, drawing sessions as well as our meetings (held 7 times a year), all help provide a vibrant and creative environment for our members.
Lantier House, which is Kirkland's Cultural Center, serves as our home base. This beautiful 200 year-old Heritage home, which was renovated in 1979, is located in the Timberlea area. The KAA holds an exhibitions in the Spring on the grounds of this beautiful heritage home, as well as an exhibition at the Kirkland Library every November.
Every year, the KAA selects an "Artist of the Year" whose work is prominently featured during our Spring exhibition. This Artist graciously donates a painting which is raffled off with all proceeds going to a West Island charity of the Artist's choice.

Bio: Pauline Thériault is a portrait artist born in Quebec City. She has studied art and different media and methods of painting for many years. Pauline studied the masters during educational trips to Europe and has been fortunate to work with several well-known teachers, including the Van Dykhofs at their School of Fine Arts.
Initially a landscape artist, Pauline then studied the Rembrandt method, leading her to a passion for portrait painting. The paints are initially applied in shades of black and white; colors are then added. This use of light and shadow brings her canvas to life, leaving the viewer entranced with her subjects.
Pauline has sold many paintings in Canada, Switzerland and Dubai.
