Art of Haiti and Quebec

During the month of January 2015 (starting on the 5th), an art exhibit showcasing the work of more than 20 artists from Quebec and Haiti will be featured in the museum/gallery of the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), 2650 Sistrunk Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The public is invited to meet the artists at a free reception on Saturday, January 10 from 3 to 5:30PM. The exhibit is organized by the Reminiscences Artists from Laval, Quebec, president Alix Rey, M.D. This exhibit provides an opportunity to admire artwork reflecting an exposure to multiple cultures. After New York City and Miami, Quebec has the third largest Haitian population of the diaspora with about 100,000 residents. This art exhibit will give residents and visitors to Florida an opportunity to appreciate paintings and sculptures of a great cultural diversity.
