The municipality of Ormstown, in collaboration with the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent, as well as the Lions Club of Ormstown, Galeries Ormstown, and La Ferme d’André, marked the first day of October by hosting the production of a giant mandala in the parking lot of the Village Church. The paint was provided, and a small crowd of people contributed to the public art installation through the day. This event was open to all and was a part of Les Journées de la Culture. Other activities throughout the weekend included the vernissage for the group art exhibition at the Alfred Langevin Cultural Hall in Huntingdon on September 30, and the public voting on October 1 for the photography exhibition and contest at the Galeries d’Ormstown. Both exhibitions featured this year’s theme, Chaos. As well, the Ormstown library hosted an art exhibition, a rug hooking demonstration, and a display of old photos of the village; and artists were invited to the Lavandou lavender farm in Franklin for a day of painting outdoors.
