Several of the exceptional artists who participated in the Art’Porte Moi project through Melissa’s Sunshine Camp and the social integration class at the Huntingdon Adult Education and Community Centre (HAECC) were on hand November 13, for the vernissage of their exhibition at the Alfred Langevin Cultural Hall in Huntingdon.
The beautiful work on display is the product of over 275 hours of art workshops and sessions led by artist Line Desrochers. Throughout the project, which was adapted specifically for adults living with intellectual or physical difficulties, over 35 participants added their touch to a series of eight painted doors provided by community partners.
The exhibition also features examples of the work done during workshops where participants learned different painting techniques. Several portraits drawn by Desrochers and painted by participants are also on display. The exhibition will continue until December 11 and can be viewed on weekends from 1 to 4 p.m. or during the week by reservation.
On November 19, local band Power Play will take the stage at the Centre Barberivain in Sainte-Barbe to benefit Melissa’s Sunshine Camp. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and admission is $20. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 450-264-6340. (SR)
