The arts and health – a win­ning con­cept!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Sin­ceN­ovem­ber of 2010, the CSSS Mem­phrem­a­gog has ex­hib­ited the works of artists from the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC. To date, 24 artists have ex­posed close to 70 pieces. The artists give 20% of any sales that they make to the Mem­phrem­a­gog Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion. Both the CSSSM and the hos­pi­tal’s Foun­da­tion are happy with this part­ner­ship. Not only are lo­cal artists con­tribut­ing to the well-be­ing of the hos­pi­tal’s clien­tele, res­i­dents, vis­i­tors and per­son­nel, but they are con­tribut­ing to the vi­tal­ity of the com­mu­nity. Artist Vi­vian Le­blanc (mid­dle) hands over a cheque to Gilles Pouliot and France Lebel of the Mem­phrem­a­gog Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.
