The DRAW 2018 October Exhibition & November Soirée

The Dumoine River Art For Wilderness (DRAW) art retreat took place on the Dumoine River in Quebec this past August.

In October 2018, on Thanksgiving weekend, the Canadian Park and Wilderness (Ottawa Valley chapter known as CPAWS-OV). held an Exhibition (October 5-8) in Bristol, Quebec

In November 2018, art donated by the artists will be sold by silent auction at the Ottawa Art Gallery and the proceeds will be used to protect the magnificent Dumoine River in Quebec

DRAW Exhibit: October 2018
The October exhibition was held at the beautiful Cidrerie Coronation Hall Cider Mills in Bristol Quebec. The drive to the vernissage from Ottawa was magnificent with the trees displaying their beautiful autumn colours

Below, I am sharing some photographs and videos that I took at the vernissage which was held Saturday October 6 between 2 and 4 pm.

The painting that I contributed to CPAWS-OV I called "The Last Portage/Heading Home” and it captured artists Becky Mason and Reid McLachlan as I saw them paddling home from our art retreat in August at the mouth of the Dumoine River below Ryan's Chutes.

"The Last Portage/Heading Home” by Cindi Moynhan-Foreman, acrylic, 10 x 20
I loved seeing it nestled among all the other artist's magnificent works on the wall at the exhibition.

Vernissage
All four walls at the Cidrerie Coronation Hall Cider Mills in Bristol Quebec were covered with incredible art that was inspired by the Dumoine River and I have tried to capture ALL of it, albeit just glimpses that do not do them full justice, in the following videos so that you get a taste of what is available for sale in November.
