Mr. Speaker, the Inverness bronze sculpture gallery is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.
Located in the Mégantic—L'Érable region, this economuseum protects and promotes a rich heritage and pays tribute to Quebec's great sculptors.
The fame of the gallery, its exhibitions and its works helps promote the cultural, tourist and economic development of both the L'Érable region and Quebec as a whole.
On October 2, the gallery celebrated its anniversary with an exhibition of the work of some forty highly talented artists, who were present at the event and included Armand Vaillancourt, Raymond Barbeau, Pascale Archambault, Huguette Joncas, Gérard Bélanger, Hélène Labrie, Roger André Bourgeault, Marcellin Fortin, Marie-Claude Demers and Jacques Lisée.
Their enthusiastic response shows just how much support there is in the artistic community for this gallery devoted to Quebec's top sculptors.
Congratulations to the gallery. May it long flourish.
