Dehors, les artistes ! Galerie Pierre Seguin Celebrates Again its Outdoors Art Festival!

L'ILE-PERROT, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) - Once again Galerie Pierre Seguin will be holding its annual Visual Arts Festival outdoors on the weekend of June 10 and 11, 2006.

Approximately 20 artists from all over the province will be painting and sculpting at several idyllic sites on Ile Perrot. The artists will be present from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Visitors will be able to learn about the different techniques of painting and sculpture and chat with the artists who are often solitary in their studios. The gallery will have on display approximately 300 works. The works will be hung in the gallery and in a large tent outdoors along with children's drawings done by primary school pupils from the Trois-Lacs School Board. All gallery artists will be represented.

With the advent of summer it is a wonderful activity for the whole family to discover the beautiful areas of the island and enjoy seeing artists at work in a "live" setting. Some of the "art stops" include the idyllic setting of the historical park of Pointe-du-Moulin a breathtaking site, as well as the village of Notre-Dame-de-L'Ile-Perrot and the Rene-Trottier park.

During the celebrations the Galerie Pierre Seguin will give youngsters the opportunity to participate in a creative activity collectively painting a work designed by artist Marie-Claude Jacques. This experience in the last two years has been extremely successful and has brought many enthusiastic "artists" from 8 months to 14 years of age. The endeavour is organised with the objective of putting the finished work up for auction at a benefit coordinated for the Comite jeunesse La Presqu'Ile. The event will be held in February 2007. The work will be exhibited in 23 municipalities in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region.

Many generous sponsors are contributing to this exciting activity. The Trois-Lacs School Board has included in its curriculum for first cycle pupils a plastic art activity of which Galerie Pierre Seguin is proud to be part of. Also participating are CCNMatthews, expert in news release, Franco & Nino, Italian cuisine, IGA extra Rochette Vezina inc., Imagerie Expert Vaudreuil-Dorion, La Ribouldingue, toys and games, Lise Chartier, Communications consultant, Meili Faille, MP for Vaudreuil-Soulanges, MRC Vaudreuil-Soulanges, National Bank of Canada, Optometrie Ile Perrot, St-Gelais Location inc. and Ville de L'Ile-Perrot.

For the third consecutive year we are looking forward to seeing young and old at "Dehors, les artistes!" at the Galerie Pierre Seguin for lots of creative fun!
