There will be an exhibit called Hommage à Lac-Mégantic from March 30th to May 25th, 2014 at the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre, 9 Speid Street, Sherbrooke.
“Following the tragic events in the town of Lac-Mégantic last summer, the Uplands exhibition committee has decided to honour Mégantic artists by mounting an exhibit which will bring together eleven artists of this region.
The public is cordially invited to come and meet the participants at a vernissage to take place Sunday, March 30, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m..
In addition, two “slam” poets, Marie-Pier Landry and Kyra Shaughnessy, will be present at the vernissage to share their poems inspired by the disaster.
Throughout the course of the exhibit, there will be an opportunity to make donations, which will be given to a cultural organization of the Lac-Mégantic region, selected by the participating artists”.
Remember, the Hommage à Lac-Mégantic exhibit will continue until May 25, 2014.
