art by the river

The Prescott Russell Arts Council Arts Council (CAPRAC), in collaboration with the Le Chenail Cultural Centre, is seeking artists to participate in a symposium and exhibition to be held at the Le Chenail Cultural Center on September 7th. The artists who will participate in the symposium will also be able to submit a work for the collective exhibition of September.

Symposium: Art by the River is an opportunity for artists to come out of the studio and create in public along the Ottawa River shore in Hawkesbury. The symposium is a great opportunity for artists to share their passion with art enthusiasts and an excellent networking opportunity with other artists from the region. The symposium will take place on September 7th from 10 am to 4 pm outside Le Chenail Cultural Centre.

Exhibition: The Art by the River exhibition will include one work by each artist participating in the symposium. The exhibition will take place from Sept 7 to Sept 29 at Le Chenail Cultural Centre in Hawkesbury.
