Local car show attracts film crew
TheStanstead Entertainment Centre (SEC) didn’t just attract a big crowd for their third car show which is free for spectators; they even attracted a film crew from the Discovery Channel who came down to Stanstead from Montreal to film the event’s Smoke Show. “They found our video on YouTube and decided to come and film the show. It was pretty cool,” said Nickolas wood, one of the organizers of the event.
There were about fifty cars, modified and antique, at the event, some from as far away as Montreal and Trois Rivieres. “There was a steady flow of visitors and we were very busy in the kitchen. It was a great family event,” said Mr. Wood.
A corn roast fundraiser was also held during the event to raise money for the Stanstead Fire Department who had to be on hand because of the Smoke show.
“We’ll be organizing another car show for next year, but it will be different and bigger,” promised Mr. Wood. Next activity up for the Stanstead Entertainment Centre, which organizers are already working on, is a car rally to be held on September 27th. SEC staff at last weekend’s event (left to right) were

TheBeaulne Museum of Coaticook is pleased to present the exhibition “Ton local” from the artist Jean-Michel Correia from the 14th of September to the 2nd of November 2014. The grand opening will be held on Sunday the 14th of September at 2pm. The public is cordially invited.
Jean-Michel Correia’s artistic work keeps a conceptual and formal bond by way of painting, sculpting and architecture. The exhibit “Ton local” materializes a project of Jean Michel Correia where the artist initiates a dialogue between the Norton Castle’s architecture and its pictorial compositions. “Ton local” is a continuation of “Modulation II “or « Le Modulor “(a unit of measure), like that of “le Jeu des Panneaux” by Le Corbusier. It is with this guide that Correia may paint freely: stacking his colors with an urgency to scratch, sand, scrub, scrape or score the surfaces in this inevitable conflict between the sanctity of a code and the expressionism of the contents. It is between doctrine and chance that the artist may find his equilibrium. Born in 1958, Jean-Michel Correia lives in Magog (Canada). Visual artist for more than 40 years, he studied at « l’École supérieure des beaux-arts” of Dijon as well as “l’École nationale d’architecture” of Paris-la Villette in France. PhD student in arts at the UQAM, he is also co-owner and manager of the “Galerie du ThéâtreMagog-Art contemporain” since 2012.
