On September 14, I welcomed 800 guests at the Casino New Brunswick for the third annual Matt LeBlanc FUSION. If I can use one word to describe the sell out show, it would be MAGICAL!
I still can’t believe that my show is now taking place at the biggest and most modern venue available and it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular shows of the region. It’s surreal to think that, a visual artist like myself can sellout his show in matter of days. It’s certainly a dream come true.
Most people wouldn’t think that I create special collections. In fact, I’ve been doing many projects over the years for corporate clients where I actually create a special collection for a special occasion.
The special collection is typically for an annual event or a specific milestone for an employee or the company itself. I even had some done for employee’s Christmas gifts. Regardless of the reason, it’s a nice touch to get some custom pieces done for your employees or clients.
A special collection can vary in quantity but the size is usually between 8 inches x 8 inches to 12 inches x 12 inches. That size makes for the perfect gift. I can provide the most appropriate size for your budget as well.
Through his “INSPIRATION Tour”, ABSTRACT ARTIST Matt LeBlanc creates a unique form of event by going into people's homes and treating the host's neighbours, friends and fellow lovers of art to a close and personal experience of his creativity.
The Spring 2013 leg of his tour is taking LeBlanc from his home town of Moncton, New Brunswick to Fredericton, Drummondville, Montreal, Ottawa and Luskville for a total of seven shows.
LeBlanc will bring along a good inventory of art for your viewing pleasure or purchase. He will have a big selection of smaller artworks, art clocks and his very own coffee blend which raise funds for his charity Mado's Gift.
Timing: Monday May 27, 2013 from 7 - 9 p.m.
Location: Luskville - The host will email you the full address and driving directions upon receipt of your RSVP.
Host: Sheila Laplante | All are invited, so bring some guests. The artist and your host look forward to welcoming new faces.

ABOUT MATT LEBLANC
How does an artist become one of the most well-known and appreciated artists in Atlantic Canada in just five short years? By refusing to believe that an artist has to starve for his art. LeBlanc has sold over 2,000 paintings around the world in his short five-year career.
He does this by using the techniques and skills he honed over 10 years in advertising agencies – where creating an awareness and getting into the psyche of the buyer’s mind has been achieved by some very creative daring. His innovative marketing and branding activities have allowed him to move from being a part-time artist to painting full-time.
By going beyond the traditional route to success, LeBlanc has created not only a following, but also an actual fan base of over 25,000 people. His art is instantly recognizable in homes and offices locally and has appeared on home decorating shows nationally on the HGTV channel. Reputable people like Debbie Travis and a couple dragons from the popular show Dragons’ Den own pieces of his art as well. READ MORE

As an admirer of photography I wanted to showcase a variety of photographs with an art photo competition so I decided to introduce the Matt LeBlanc Art Photo Competition. The rules were simple, but I wanted the photographers to really push the boundaries with their art. So I invited some photographers to come to my studio and choose a piece of art to use for their creative photograph. With a three-week deadline they had to create a shot that incorporated the piece of art they had chosen.
The results from this group of both Amateur and Professional photographers were both creative and innovative. They definitely pushed the boundaries! A committee had been put together to select the finalists and the winners got to keep his or her chosen piece of artwork or choose something else form my inventory.
