This is the slogan for the Conseil des arts Prescott-Russell arts council’s (CAPRAC) new online gallery. “Our vision is that the platform helps both establish emerging artists in the region and beyond and foster new opportunities to be showcased in physical venues in and outside our region,” said Shanna Steals, CAPRAC Executive Director.
The online gallery allows artists to submit their work to be showcased and sold directly through the website. A multitude of works of art will be included in the online gallery, such as visual art, fine craft, literature and music. This can range anywhere from paintings, to photography, to poetry, to jewelry and even to tickets for concerts and plays.
The online gallery, which can be found at www.capracgallery.ca, was officially launched on Wednesday May 29 at the L’Orignal Old Jail. This project was made possible with a grant received from the Prescott Russell Community Development Corporation, in addition to the usual funding given to CAPRAC by the United Counties.
