Art à découvrir

2009-03-09, from Member
Sherbrooke - For a fourth consecutive year the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre, in association with the Regroupement CNDE- Dixville, is proud to present an exhibit displaying works of art done by artists living with an intellectual handicap. This cultural event held during the Quebec Week for Intellectual Handicap will begin with a Vernissage from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday March 12th at Uplands.

Art à découvrir is a unique experience, a blend of creativity and community awareness. The opening night is awash with genuine celebration, and feelings of pride. This is an event where the artists receive a healthy dose of encouragement and acknowledgement from friends, families, people working in the field and the general public. This event exemplifies a community at its best.

The artists themselves will be making a special appearance at the vernissage to showcase their works of art. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase and bring home unique pieces of art which contribute to the enthusiasm of the artist.

The art exhibit Art à découvrir will be open to the public from Thursday, March 12th to Sunday, the 22nd of March, 2009. Uplands’ opening hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 1-4:30 p.m. The Uplands Cultural and Heritage Center is situated at 9 Speid street, Borough of Lennoxville, in the City of Sherbrooke
