Offering an exceptional showcase for Quebec
creators, the Yvonne
L. Bombardier Cultural Centre is a special meeting place for
visual arts lovers. Located in Valcourt, in the Eastern Townships,
the centre offers a rich program of cultural and educational
activities for all ages to discover artists through different
techniques and art forms. Painting, sculpture, photography and
collage are just a few of them, but there is much more to explore...
With each exhibition, new surprises await you!
This summer, nature is in the spotlight
with À l'origine, an exhibition featuring the work of
artists Ghislaine Riendeau, Luc Pelletier and a local duo, Zoné
Vert, formed by Christine Juillard and Michel Bachelet. Presented
until August 29, 2021, this exhibition shows how respect for nature
and the human footprint on it unite the artists' work. For a deeper
experience, guided tours are offered every Wednesday and Sunday to
learn more about the artists' approaches.
If you want to discover this magnificent
exhibition from another angle, you can take part in the
find-and-seek game, offered until August 15. Ideal for families, this game takes you on a
more playful tour of the exhibition and lets you see aspects of
the works that you might not have noticed otherwise.
The cultural centre is surrounded by a
splendid park. As you walk along the paths, you will learn about
its history through various anecdotes by snapping pictures of the
QR codes set up along your path with your smartphone. Learn about
how the park started, the architecture of the cultural centre, the
outside artwork and some of the tree species. By the way, did you
know that 155 silver maples were planted to form a belt around the
park's grounds in 1968? One thing is for sure, you can look
forward to lots of discoveries thanks to this new activity! And if
the weather is nice, bring a picnic along!
