July 29-August 21
Diverse artists promoting turtle conservation
All species of turtles in the Outaouais/Ottawa valley watershed are deemed at risk; threatened by habitat loss, accidents, predators, climate change, and sometimes deliberate cruelty.
Turtles are mute and we, as artists, must speak for them in calling for the sustainability of the wetlands and forested areas they inhabit.
24 artists will exhibit their artworks along with local conservation groups and field naturalists who will contribute posters, educational material and speakers. On August 6 here will be a free family workshop; “Turtlemania” where young people will create art to be incorporated into the exhibition.
