THE CEMETERY TREES IN THE SPRING
Saturday, May 27th at 1 p.m.
 
Led by Jerry Bull, experienced tree guide.
Starting at the Cemetery’s main entrance 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont
 
Spring is the ideal time of year to see the cemetery trees at their different stages of development. The silver maples will already be dropping their fruit, while the fragrant white flowers of the black locust should just be opening, along with the hawthorns and horse chestnuts. As for that Johnny-come-lately, the Kentucky coffee tree, the new leaves should just be out, while last year's burgundy bean pods will still be hanging from the tree's craggy branches.

“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
Alfred Steiglitz, American photographer and modern art promoter.

With a goal to support and promote local photographers, the “Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery” established this juried photography exhibition in 2007. Now in its 11th consecutive year, this popular exhibition provides photographers with opportunities not only to expose their works in a very unique public venue but also to win cash prizes and have their work appear in publications of the “Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery”.

This year we are looking for photographs of your favourite mountains including Montreal’s own Mount Royal; more than mountain landscapes, we are looking for mountain treasures captured in any of the four seasons; perhaps the elusive Red Fox, a crystalline landscape, a fleeting sculpture by a rushing stream or a brilliant sunset.

Discover the hidden treasures of this magnificent garden cemetery and display your works in the incomparable setting of the Mount Royal Funeral Complex located at 1297 Chemin de la Forêt on beautiful Mount Royal in Outremont.

The “Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery” helps preserve and promote the tremendous natural and historic treasure that the Mount Royal Cemetery has become since its founding in 1852.

It’s not a matter of painting life; it’s a matter of giving life to painting
Pierre Bonnard, French painter and printmaker.

In 2002 we hosted what we envisioned as a one-time art exhibition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Mount Royal Cemetery but soon realized that in this way we could help promote local artists.

2017 marks the 16th anniversary of this juried art exhibition providing opportunities for artists not only to expose their works in a very unique public venue but also to win cash prizes and have their work appear in publications of the “Friends of the Mount Royal Cemetery”.

This year we are looking for works depicting your favourite mountains including Montreal’s own Mount Royal; and more than mountain landscapes, we are looking for mountain treasures captured in any of the four seasons; perhaps the elusive Red Fox, a crystalline landscape, the fleeting image seen in a rushing stream or a brilliant sunset.

Discover the hidden treasures of this magnificent garden cemetery and display your works in the incomparable setting of the Mount Royal Funeral Complex located at 1297 Chemin de la Forêt on beautiful Mount Royal inOutremont.

THE CEMETERY TREES IN THE FALL
Sunday September 24th at 10 a.m.

Led by Jerry Bull, tree specialist
Starting at the Cemetery’s main entrance 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont
 
Autumn is the season of striking change. With warm colours, fruit, nuts and cones, not only are the leaves at their most flamboyant, but the fruit of the trees are often at their most striking and most visible. Bean pods, apples, haws, samaras, nuts, catkins and berries abound on such trees of the cemetery as the Ohio buckeye, spindle, ginkgo and several species of maple. Come and enjoy the beauty of the trees at the closing of their cycle.
