Renée Condo

Renée Condo is an up and coming fine-artist who is dedicated to creating original works of art that are unique, meticulously prepared, and inspiration driven. Of Mi’kmaq origin of the community of Gesgapegiag, she was raised in the town of Grand Cascapedia until the age of 17, before heading to the city of Montreal where she worked her way through various levels of the federal government. In December of 2010 Renée returned to her home town on maternity leave and has since taken additional leave from work to raise her family and pursue her path of becoming a professional artist.

In 2011, aimed at paying homage to the Grand Cascapedia River, sustainer of the life and culture of her town, and at providing salmon fishing lovers with an original work of art of a sport that inspires, captivates and challenges, Renée created her first sculpture of a fisherman with his catch; a beautiful female Atlantic Salmon. She followed with a second fisherman sculpture in 2012, both to be displayed at the Cascapedia River Museum during the summer of 2012, as well as in the 11 Nations Exhibition at the Marché Bonsecours in Montreal.

Renée believes that she will be providing salmon fishing lovers with a souvenir of a sport that they love, reflective of their lifestyle in its high-end quality, its originality, and its sophistication. And with great respect for the people who support their families through work on the river, as her parents had done in the past, Renée also hopes to honor them with her exhibition - “Homage to the Grand”.
