Celine Poirier Vernissage



The  AHA Spring Show was a huge success, selling 33 paintings over the April 20-22 weekend.  Twenty-eight artists exhibited, with 20 of those artist being judged for Best in Show by Monica Brinkman and Pierrette LaBonte.  Both judges agreed it was a tough task, commenting that the artwork on display was simply amazing!  After much deliberation, Mona Turner was awarded Best in Show, with Heather Dubreuil , Gina Haladuick and Shernya Vininsky receiving Honourable Mention.  Friday night’’s Vernissage saw record crowds and the weekend had a steady stream of people, all who agreed that this was AHA’s best show ever!  The newly renovated Community Center showcased all the artwork beautifully, creating, as one patron mentioned, “a total experience…from wonderful works of art to the delicious coffee and squares, all in an atmosphere of friendliness and warmth”.  It just doesn’t get any better than that!
