On July 20, around a dozen local and visiting artists held a vernissage at Art Brûlant & Impressions in Shawville, showcasing the skills they had been cultivating throughout the week.
Part of the eighth annual Pontiac Artists' Residency Project, the week-long program brought out artists from across Quebec and Ontario to commune with local artisans and create works as a group.
“There were nine visiting artists and six hosts,” explained organizer Valerie Bridgeman. “There were probably, on average, six or eight local artists that participated as well.”
