$85,000 for Parle-moi d'amour Drummondville
The sale of artworks from the 6th edition of the exhibition-auction Parle-moi d’amour Drummondville, which took place from December 4 to 16, 2021, has raised the unprecedented sum of $50,000, in addition to the generous corporate donations by the Caisse Desjardins of Drummondville, the city of Drummondville and Valmetal, bringing the total sum to $85,000.
Presented at Galerie d’art Desjardins, in collaboration with the Maison des arts Desjardins Drummondville and the CIUSSS de la Mauricie-et-du-Centre-du-Québec, the event showcased 115 artworks by Impatients, professionnal artists and private collectors.
The funds raised will support Les Impatients workshops in Drummondville at Maison des arts Desjardins Drummondville and La Piaule, and allow to open a new one at Musée de la photographie Desjardins starting in winter 2022.
