  • Date: October 07 2017
  • Location: Art Brulant and Impressions Shawville, Quebec
  • Join CPAWS-OV for a vernisage at Art Brûlant and Impressions in Shawville, Quebec for the opening of CPAWS-OV Art Exhibit - Featuring the Dumoine River. This event is free to the public.

    Stunning artwork created at the CPAWS-OV Dumoine River Art Camp will also be showcased and available for auction. In August, CPAWS-OV hosted the art camp, which brought together artists working in different mediums and from communities across Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. The artists had an opportunity to explore the Dumoine River, create various works of art, share stories and become inspired by this magnificent landscape.

    The art will be displayed at Art Brûlant and Impressions from October 7-21. On Monday, October 23 it will be sold in a silent auction at our CPAWS Soirée – An evening with Robert Bateman and Ian Tamblyn.

    Proceeds from our CPAWS Soirée - An evening with Robert Bateman and Ian Tamblyn will support CPAWS-OV's wilderness conservation efforts including protecting Quebec's Dumoine, Noire and Coulonge rivers and securing legislated protection for Gatineau Park.
