Célébration was organized through the spring of 2017 as a way to celebrate Canada and Montreal's anniversaries. What better way than put together a party and art exhibition on the Main next to Schwartz's? I invited artists I thought would well convey their love of their city and their country. We put up the exhibition at Mainline Gallery on July 5th, vernissage on July 6th and it remained up until the 9th. It was a wonderful array of talent and a variety of outlooks worth celebrating. My thanks to the artists who came aboard and to the visitors who came by.
