About the Exhibit:

The Lennoxville Art Group (LAG) was formed in 1992. This small group of artists would meet on the third floor of the Town Hall on main street in Lennoxville. Lucille Derrick was the first President and we are so fortunate to have had four of the original members be a part of the group until recently: Jean Distefano, who has passed away, Dorothy Ross, Glenys Groves and Leta Dustin who still paints with us every week. Other long standing members are Sarah McConnachie 26 years, Ilah Batley 20 years and Marilyn Salter 18 years.

LAG moved to the Amédée Beaudoin Community Center when it opened and we still meet there weekly. The number of members has fluctuated over the years from 10 to 30 – we presently have 25 and maintain this group size to accommodate the annual art show and the space needed when we meet.

We do not give painting lessons but hold critiques when artists request one. We share ideas and hold workshops when possible.  We also do our best to support members who exhibit at various venues. LAG has held its annual Art Exhibition & Sale since its inception. The original shows were held at Uplands Cultural Center from 1993 to 2002. We have used Amédée Beaudoin since 2003 but did not hold shows for two years during Covid. The first year at Amédée the group decided to give back to the community: A member donates a painting, a drawing is held at the end of the exhibition and all proceeds are given to a local group/activity. This tradition continues today.

In recent years many members have exhibited at the Lennoxville Library during November and December. The Sherbrooke Library, Eva Senecal, has invited us for a second year to exhibit for three weeks in March.

We are pleased to be back at Uplands for April and May. Our last exhibit at Uplands was late September 2016 for one month to celebrate 25 years as a group.-Lennoxville Art Group
