Up­lands Pre­sents a Com­mu­nity Art Project Melt­ing-Pot Mo­saic

Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Up­lands Cul­tural and Her­itage Cen­tre is un­veil­ing a com­mu­nity art project that has been four years in the works. On Sun­day, June 1st be­tween 2pm and 4 pm, the pub­lic is in­vited to the vernissage for mosaïque Melt­ing-Pot mo­saic which will ex­hibit the collection of mo­saics made by close to forty par­tic­i­pants from the Town­ships com­mu­nity.

In a se­ries of four 6 week work­shops, each par­tic­i­pant made two projects, one of which they were asked to do­nate to the Melt­ing-Pot, and the other, which they kept for them­selves. The do­nated projects will be­come part of larger mo­saic mu­rals which will be hung at dif­fer­ent venues in the com­mu­nity, while the re­main­ing projects will be ex­hib­ited in the Up­lands gallery un­til June 22nd.

This project was made pos­si­ble by a grant from Cana­dian Her­itage, and be­came a re­al­ity thanks to the tremen­dous sup­port of Dixville Foun­da­tion. Ma­te­ri­als for the projects came from a num­ber of sources through­out the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing do­na­tions of dishes, bro­ken jew­elry, rocks, shells, mar­bles, toys and much more. Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity at large con­trib­uted in a num­ber of ways, and we hope that ev­ery­one will be a part of cel­e­brat­ing this project, which had as its mis­sion, to bring to­gether as many people in our re­gion as pos­si­ble.

We hope that you will be among us. For more in­for­ma­tion, please don’t hes­i­tate to visit our web­site: www.up­lands.ca or the Face­book Page: Mo­saique Melt­ing Pot Mo­saic. You can also e-mail us at: up­lands@up­lands.ca or call: (819)564-0409.
