Thursday, July 4th, residents of Pincourt gathered at the vernissage of what has become a long-standing tradition: the annual art exhibit, better known as “Vacances en Art” or “ In the Art of Summer”. With a little wine, and some fabulous jazz performed by two local musicians: Félix Blanchette on the guitar and Asparuh Ivanov on clarinet, folks of all ages mingled and commented on the array of the artwork on display
For the 12th consecutive year, the Pincourt library has become an art gallery every July, with a spotlight on talented local and not so local artists. This year, some 28 artists of different ages and levels are featured in the exhibit, including works from Town councillor Claudine Girouard.
Some fifty people participated in the opening celebration, including Mayor Yvan Cardinal.
Registration to enter the exhibit is held in May and artists simply need to fill out the form on the town’s website. The exhibit runs from July 5th to July 26th.
Also, this year, libraries from other parts of the island – Ile Perrot and Notre Dame de l’Ile Perrot are holding art exhibits in the same fashion, but featuring different artists. So if you are looking for something to do, one early evening or on a Saturday, you can take an artistic tour of Marie-Uguay, Guy Godin and Pincourt libraries.
As with most Burroughs, Pincourt is bustling with activities this summer: from cooking demonstrations in the park on Wednesday nights to Free outdoor concerts on Thursday evenings, not to mention up-coming magician and Educazoo and drawing workshops.
You will find all the details and more on the town of Pincourt’s website.
