The completed works will then be included as part of an exhibition that will be on display at the library from Tuesday, July 11 to Thursday, August 10.
A panel of regional artists will select the five winning works of art. The Town of Saint-Lazare will purchase these pieces at a cost of $500 each during the Festival’s evening closing event. These purchases fall under the Town of Saint-Lazare’s policy regarding the acquisition of works of art.
