Gilbert was discovered by artist John Hartman in 1980. Hartman began to visit regularly and to document Gilbert’s work and his life. A solo exhibition of Gilbert Desrochers work was held at the McMichael Canadian Art Gallery from November 3, 1991 to March 1, 1992. I have a few more catalogs of this remarkable show available for $18. Jesus is not signed. Few of his pieces are. 19" tall 8" wide, 9" deep.
Shadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario
