2021 Calendar

Come and discover who the real Columbo is

Opening Show: December  4th – 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Exposition: December 4, 2021 to January 30, 2022

At 2:30 p.m., come and discover your secret collaborator with whom, without knowing it, you have created a magnificent collective work!

The secret will be divulged on Saturday, December 4 at 2:30 pm at the Art Center!

Yes, at 2:30 p.m., Grade 3 students from École de la Clé-des-Champs in Dunham and Grade 3 and 4 students from École St-François D’Assise in Frelighsburg, who participated in the Pigeon voyageur workshop with artist France Bergeron throughout October, will meet for an opening show where their works and texts will be exhibited in the library on paper bags.

Guided by multidisciplinary artist and art therapist France Bergeron and inspired by the history of carrier pigeons, the pioneers of long-distance communication (the ancestor of texting, shall we say!), the students were invited to draw a scene or write a short text inspired by the scene previously drawn by the other class. Without knowing each other, they took their work and their poetry on a journey through the famous brown paper bags used last winter for contactless lending at the library.

During the event, some of the texts will be read by their authors. The bags will be on display for students and their families, as well as the general public from December 4, 2021 to January 30, 2022 at the Dunham Art Centre.

Eight additional bags, made during workshops last summer, will also be on display.

We would like to thank Marilyn Minier and Sylvie Valiquette, teachers, as well as Michel Moreau, principal of both schools, for having gladly accepted to take up this challenge and to live this cultural adventure.
