For the 11th consecutive year, Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre is pleased to present Bonheur d’hiver, our annual “prelude to winter” collective exhibit. The 2010 edition of this popular event will showcase the work of eight Eastern Townships artists and artisans. Bonheur d’hiver will run until December 18, 2010.

Bonheur d’hiver is a spirited exhibit sure to tantalize your senses through the diversity of mediums, the spectrum of participating artists, and the comforting ambiance of its setting.

The artists of Bonheur d’hiver 2010 are:

Lucy Doheny (Lennoxville) - Pottery
Debbie Everett (Lennoxville) - Sculpture on wood
Jessica Masters (Lennoxville) - Oil and Pastels

Joseph Ford (Lennoxville) - Oil
Luc Germain (Sherbrooke) - Photography

Bonheur d’hiver is more than an exhibit; it is also an art sale, the perfect occasion to buy something for you or as a gift for a loved one in the pre-Christmas season. What better way to soften winter’s chill than with a unique piece of art lovingly crafted in a local studio!
