HAPPY TRAILS



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Other places have art tours. The lower Haut-Saint-François has an art trail - the Sentier artistique des Hauts-Boisés. It is planned for Thursday to Sunday, July 17 to 20, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. That's your window of opportunity to visit the various studios, meet the artists, hear about how they work, see their tools, and absorb their art in the very place it was created.

The tour is the brainchild of Denis Palmer of 1149 Route 210 in Randboro and Normand Gladu at 50 Clifton Road West in Saint-Isidore-de-Clifton. They are the returning artists on the trail - Denis with drawings and watercolour paintings, Normand with environmental and contemporary sculptures.

New this year are five other artists. Two are from Bury - Kristiina Sakai and Marilyn Findlay Salter, both with acrylic paintings, both at the United Cultural Center. A pair of "artisans of wood" called Bout du chemin/Tammy & Gilles are at 915 Leblanc Road in Cookshire-Eaton. David Nortcliffe and his oil paintings are at 511 Chute Road in Birchton. And Luc Pallegoix & Sylvain Dodier offer an intriguing menu of photography and poetry at 15 Principale Street in St-Isidore-de-Clifton.

A lush brochure lets you sample each artist's work in advance, and offers coordinates and a map so you can find them easily. Look for your Sentier artistique des Hauts-Boisés brochure at the Cookshire IGA, the Bury general store, and other pick-up points. Or give Denis Palmer a call at 819-889-2549. Happy trails!
