More than 50 people attended the Open Forum for M¨¦tis Artists on April 11 at the M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) office in Midland.
The event was organized by MNO citizen and artist Maurice Cadieux and his wife Donna. Their passion for the arts, their family and friends sparked the idea to give back by inviting other M¨¦tis artists and providing a venue for them to interact and show their work.
Artists filled every table with displays of beading, sculptures, carpentry, visual arts and photography.
True to M¨¦tis spirit, the hall was filled with laughter and music throughout the evening. Everyone had an opportunity to interact with the artists, ask questions and develop friendships.
Comment cards from participants showed they loved the event.
The event is just the first, according to Cadieux, who is already planning for the next open forum.
Special thanks to the MNO Georgian Bay M¨¦tis Council for their donation of the facilities, food and beverages. Maurice and Donna would also like to thank their family and friends for their support throughout the organization of the event.
