Winner - Painting Category
I'm proud to announce that I am the Winner of the Prize for Painting - Professional Category, of the Art Contest 2015 of the City of Montreal - Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro. The Awards night was held on April 16 in the presence of Jim Beis, Borough Mayor and member of the Executive Committee of the City as well as Justine McIntyre and Roger Trottier councillors. The jury was composed of Annie Beaugrand-Champagne, Christiane Desjardins and Édouard Lachapelle.
The Art Contest celebrates this year its 30th anniversary, the first edition of the Pierrefonds Art Contest was held in 1985. The competition was set up by the Pierrefonds Cultural Division to increase the development of arts and culture and encourage local talent. Since then, the contest was open to all artists and became the only event of its kind on the island of Montreal. It is now open to all citizens of the Greater Montreal. It takes place in a new exhibition hall in Pierrefonds' Cultural Centre since 2012.
