Local artist catches eye of Premier
Bolton East artist, Jacynthe Comeau, who was a finalist at the provincial painting contest at Baie St. Paul, received the “Prix de la première ministre”. Her work entitled “Remisage” was the favourite of the premier, and she is seen here receiving her plaque from Mrs. Marois. Earlier in the year, the artist received the silver medal from the Canadian Watercolour Society and the “Da Vinci” award from the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour of Toronto.
