L’Imagier Art Centre invites you to join an evening of art, music and food discovery. Art work auction, jazz performance by Patricia Balfour and her guests and dining cocktail offered by Aylmer culinary artists.
Funds raised at Discoveries. A fundraising evening at L’Imagier event will be used to further support the development of L’Imagier, building on the launch of the new Centre, inaugurated last May. With new human and financial resources, L’Imagier will be positioned to expand its art programming activity, both inside its walls and outdoors in the Parc de l’Imaginaire, and further project our region’s unique character. The Association des professionnels, industriels et commerçants d’Aylmer (APICA) will be joining L’Imagier for the event.
The President of L’Imagier, François Lachapelle, stresses that “the development and diversification of its education, exhibition and stage performance programming, in the Parc de L’Imaginaire and its new building, is how L’Imagier is contributing to making Aylmer a destination of choice where citizens of all origins gather. We are doing all we can to accomplish this mission and your donations, small or large, are essential. Join us for this evening and invest in Aylmer’s quality of life!”
The President of APICA, François Sylvestre, emphasizes that “the APICA is proud to partner with L’Imagier for this fundraiser and to offer its members and partners an additional opportunity to support the development of the Centre. L’Imagier plays a key role in advancing cultural, art and education projects within our local and regional communities. L’Imagier and APICA share the common objective of promoting diversity and increasing cultural and commercial interest for Aylmer. Let’s all do our part and contribute!”
