Artists show work inspired by the Dumoine

An exhibit opened Saturday afternoon at the Art Brûlant and Impressions Café in Shawville, featuring the work of 15 artists who camped at the Dumoine River in early August. Aleta Karstad and Scott Haig, two artists who took part in the trip and have their work on display, share a laugh in the gallery.

An art project supporting the protection status of the Dumoine River went on display at a café in Shawville over the weekend, highlighting the natural beauty of the region through the eyes of 15 different artists.
Organized by the Ottawa Valley Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS-OV) with the intention of supporting the organization’s wilderness conservation initiatives, the free art exhibit opened Saturday afternoon at the Art Brûlant and Impressions Café, and will be on display there until Oct. 21, 2017.
“Dumoine River is the last undammed river anywhere in Southern Quebec,” said John McDonnell, executive director of CPAWS. “A lot of people don’t know about it.”
