A passion for the arts and for our beautiful region

The 3rd edition of the Baie des Chaleurs Painting and Drawing Symposium will be held on September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2017 at Ecole Aux Qautre Vents in Dalhousie, NB. This 3-day event is a gathering of about thirty juried and invited artists, all of whom will show recent work and who will be available in person to meet and talk with you during public hours. Come and see (and buy!) some of the best original drawings and paintings being produced by local artists. Vote for your favorite piece of art – the winner will be awarded on Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday evening, many of the selected artists will participate in "ImprovisArt", a live painting show where the artists will create an original drawing or painting from scratch, while you watch. It's fun! And, all the "ImprovisArt" paintings will be auctioned at the end of the contest. Proceeds of this auction go 100% to the artists.

Visit the artists’ page for information on presenters and what you’ll see during the weekend. See the public schedule for information on what’s happening during the event.

Mark your calendars for the weekend of September 22nd – don’t miss it!!
