Exhibit at the United Counties of Prescott and Russell!

For the second edition of the Expressions of our Municipalities project, the Prescott-Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC) in collaboration with the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) are looking for one artist per municipality to exhibit a work for the duration of one year in the Council Chamber at 59 Court Street, L'Orignal. The exhibit will serve as a constant reminder of the importance of arts and culture in the region.

The Arts Council is currently seeking to fill two youth summer employment positions:

  • Cultural Projects Officer
  • Cultural Development Officer

Please note that due to the pandemic, CAPRAC has put in place temporary measures to allow for the continuity of summer programming - shifting to digital/online programming, social/physical distancing, and teleconferencing. The health and safety of our employees are of utmost importance and we will continue to work diligently under these conditions. 

The Conseil des Arts Prescott Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC)  is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to promote regional arts, culture, and heritage, in addition to serving its members.

The Artists' Association of Clarence-Rockland (AACR) is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. at the Parent Independent Grocery Store, in the Community Room located on the 2nd floor of 2737 Laurier Street in Rockland.
 
Caroline Lalonde from MIFO in Orléans will give a presentation on the organization and discuss the possibilities for artists to exhibit at the Galerie Eugène-Racette. Please arrive at 6:45 p.m. and confirm your presence to help plan how much to order for the buffet. It is not necessary to be a member of the AACR to attend this presentation or the AGM.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We wish to advise the public that the Prescott-Russell Arts Council has closed its offices to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. CAPRAC staff are working from home and continue to serve the arts sector in these exceptional circumstances, notably by ensuring access to important resources for artists and cultural workers in the region.

We thank you for your patience as we adapt to new work methods and the limited availability of our staff. Please contact us at 613-301-0491 or by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Popsilos project, a circuit that combines art and agrifood tourism in the Prescott-Russell countryside to celebrate Canada’s 150th, needs your help. We are looking to create four giant murals on farm silos that will encourage visitors to come through the countryside and on their way, stop at small producers’ farms to discover their products. We are looking for mural artists (8) and local visual artists (4 to 8) who will team up with the mural artists to work on the mural design, in the conceptualization phase. These local artists will act as cultural mentors and will represent the community.

Interested? You have until March 31st, 2017, 23:59 EDT to submit your application.
