Ace Art Inc., 2nd Floor, 290 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

"The Collections is simultaneously a collection of highly personal artifacts and a set of triggers which may awake recognition, even nostalgia in the viewer. Though Lessard designed the show expressly for the dimensions and character of the McDermot Avenue space, the work conspires to militate against gallery containment. It is singular and a set of cross-references; one component even proposes a past, present and future brought together neat and tight as corset clasps. Add to that some pointed comments on nostalgia and some intricate but not belaboured puns and you have one unique procession." - Randal McIlroy, Winnipeg Free Press, April 5 1986, pg. 25
