Papineauville Arts Rendezvous

2020 Edition

Call for Visual art’s artists and artisans participants

Registration Form RVD 2020-EN

Introduction.

The “Papineauville Arts Rendezvous” is a subcommittee of the “Comité Culturel de Papineauville”.  The Comité culturel is non-profit organisation and is committed to the promotion of culture within the population.  The “Arts Rendezvous” is the medium chosen to promote the visual arts.  Each year we hold on the last weekend of August an outdoor exhibition featuring the visual arts.  It is held at the heart of the municipality of Papineauville Henri-Bourassa Park and Ste-Angélique Square situated on both sides of route 148.   For the occasion, these two sites transform themselves in an outdoor art gallery. Visual art artists and artisans are invited from the MRC of Papineau, the Outaouais and elsewhere to come exhibit their latest creations.  The population is invited to come see the art works on display and meet the artist/artisans in their individual kiosk.
