Bromont en Art : 4 Reasons to Come By for a visit
Art and Culture
When Rénald Cusson and Marie-Claude Tétreault made a date to come together with a few of their artist friends, they didn’t think that, 20 years later, Bromont en Art would become such an important event for the Bromont area.
Rénald Cusson tells us about this symposium, so dear to his heart, and gives us many reasons why we should come by for a visit.
The Event Is Celebrating its 20th Anniversary
On August 24, 25 and 26, we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the symposium which will be held once again in the Vieux Village of Bromont. “There will be more entertainment, a lot of music, lots of balloons everywhere, a public piano. . .,” says M. Cusson. “There will also be a few surprises, but for now, I can’t tell you what they will be!” Bromont en Art’s great renown, on which its longevity is based, has its organizers believe they will pass the 30,000 visitors this year (there were 26,000 last year).
Many, Many Artists Will be There
This year, 133 artists will take part in the event. This is a new record! “It was somewhat heartbreaking because we had to turn down some participants,” says the organizer. “It’s a question of space, there just wasn’t anymore left!” Based essentially on criteria of quality and diversity, the exhibit selection is far from being haphazard. Painters, sculptors, bronze casters. . . The world of Visual Arts will be well represented. Notably by a pool of highly appreciated local artists, but also by guests from around the country and elsewhere, such as Ontario and the United States will be present.
The Perfect Opportunity to Buy Unique Artwork
While meandering from tent to tent, you’ll be attracted by everything you’ll see. More than 2,000 works of art will be presented and some of them will surely touch your heart. Bromont en Art offers you the opportunity to appreciate our local artists’ work and, why not, to offer yourself a painting or a sculpture or any other exclusive piece. No matter what your budget might be, you’ll have a wide selection to choose from.
An Enchanting Setting
The artist tents cover a distance of a little more than a kilometer, and are set along Shefford Street in the Vieux Village of Bromont. With its heritage buildings and green spaces, Shefford Street also hosts several cafés, restaurants and businesses, each with their own authentic charm. Just think of Désirables gâteries, Café 1742, l’Échoppe de la montagne, Ema Rose… While exploring the symposium site, you’ll have many opportunities to stop and eat a piece of pie, taste a delicious cup of coffee, stumble upon an unexpected little treasure. . .
Bromont en Art is an excellent pretext to come to spend the entire day or even a few days in the area. For more information concerning the symposium, click here!
