Youth Art Exhibit

Mother Earth

Celebrating Our Mother Earth

The 2017 art submissions to the exhibit more than tripled last year’s with 131 pieces of art on display coming from artists aged 3 to 17. Artists came from across the Municipality of La Pêche and beyond. Students from Peggy Brewin Pre-School, Wakefield Elementary School and École secondaire des Lacs were all represented.

The Pipolinka bakery, the Confiserie, the General Store and Anne Winshop with Bean Fair generously contributed food and fair trade hot chocolate to the event. The Municipality of La Pêche helped provide funds for the exhibit and gala.

The Gala featured talented young performers including: 12 year old Ava Wentges reading her story ‘North Pole Penquin’ which was co-written with her father Taylor, 11 year old Anouk Marks on the keyboard, 8 year old Noah Marks on the violin, 7 year old Isaac Bardell DeFranco on the trumpet, 16 year old Martin Duford singing with his guitar and 12 year old Ryely Johnson on the key board.

Thank you to all participants. See you next year!
