Ce prix est remis sans mises en candidatures. Ce prix, accompagné d’une bourse de 1 500 $ est remis par).

Depuis le début de sa carrière, les intérêts artistiques de France Fauteux sont tournés vers le monde animal. Au départ, elle était fascinée par leur forme, leur diversité, leur agilité et leur beauté physique. À force d’observations, de lectures, de recherches, elle leur a découvert des capacités psychologiques et émotionnelles très près de celles des hommes. Captivée par ces similitudes, elle a voulu humaniser ses sculptures animalières en attribuant à chacune des émotions et des expressions typiquement humaines, comme la tendresse, la surprise, l’abandon et bien d’autres.
La formation de Mme Fauteux a débuté à l’École de céramique Julien de Québec dans les années soixante-dix et s’est enrichie par de nombreuses sessions de perfectionnement au Québec et en Ontario. C’est en 1978 qu’elle a ouvert son atelier. L’artiste a participé à de nombreuses expositions dans des galeries, musées et centres culturels au Québec et à l’étranger : le Centre MATERIA, le Musée d’Art contemporain de Baie-St-Paul, le Musée du Haut-Richelieu, la Shayder School of Art and Art History Gallery de Denver au Colorado et la Hammond Harkins Gallery de Bexley en Ohio. Ses pièces uniques font partie de plusieurs collections publiques et privées du Canada et des États-Unis.

L’artiste est fréquemment sollicitée pour les jurys en métiers d’art du Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. Elle prononce à l’occasion des conférences et œuvre à titre d’évaluatrice pour le Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec.
Les prix en métiers d’art visent à récompenser les artisans créateurs de toutes les disciplines : lutherie, joaillerie, ébénisterie, céramique, textile, sculpture, maroquinerie, verre, etc.

At the outset, she was fascinated by their form, their diversity, their agility and their physical beauty. From observations, readings, research, she has discovered the capabilities psychological and emotional that are very close to those of humans.
