On Friday November 8 from 5 to 8 pm, all are welcome to celebrate the
opening of PAF’s Xmas Art Market and Anonymous Artist Silent Auction.
We will raise a glass to the buildings’ new stairs, generously funded
by the Government of Canada through the Enabling Accessibility Fund,
by the Municipality of La Pèche RCCL Grants, and by PAF Membership.

The Art Market and Silent Auction continue through until Sunday.  The
sale features a relaxed and straight forward way to view and purchase
unique and local works of art, and helps support many local artists
and artisans. Favourite PAF members and special guest artists will be
featured, along with a show and sale by local youth artists. The event
is also a fundraiser, with 20% of funds made from the sale going to
support the co-op’s plans to purchase the building it is located in,
at 42 chemin Plunkett in Farrellton, Quebec.

For the months of November and December 2019 and January 2020, artists
Alexa Hatanaka and Patrick Thompson will be in Residence at Place des
artistes de Farrellton (PAF). Presented by Articulture, the
organization is planning a series of large-scale art pieces as the
foundation for La Galerie: an outdoor, all season permanent art
gallery on farm land in La Pêche.  On Sunday November 10 at 3pm and
4pm, the public is invited to talk to Alexa and Patrick about their
work, followed by a discussion led by ArtiCulture asking local artists
how they can contribute to La Galerie in the years to come.

Local Wakefield Granny and author Ilse Turnsen will read from her
newly published book ” Whisperings”. PAF artist Iris Kiewiet will
showcase her sensitive, collaborative illustrations. Wakefield
Troubadour Mary Lou van Schaik says of the book: “In words and images
the book celebrates the wonder and wisdom between generations”.

Place des Artistes de Farrellton – Farrellton Artists Space is located
at:  42 chemin Plunkett, Farrellton, Quebec  (10 minutes north of
Wakefield up the 105, half a kilometer before the Farrellton Bridge.)
