Artists and craftsmen interested in participating in the House of Crafts are required to offer products that align with the craft definition by the Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec and ensure that all works are original, with no acceptance of works from other artisans or the commercial sector. Merchants at the Gourmet Market are expected to offer agri-food products, maintain activity at their chalet throughout the event’s opening hours, and adhere to all relevant laws and regulations.
Civic Exhibitions 2025
Application Deadline: March 31, 2024
Maison Lachaîne, at 37 Blainville West Street, will host annual exhibitions for amateur visual artists. Participants need to be residents of Sainte-Thérèse or its surrounding region, with preference given to local artists in cases of equal qualification. Submissions can include works in painting, drawing, photography, engraving, digital art, installations, etc., and artists must frame their works or provide necessary support for exhibition.
Municipal Art Collection
Application Deadline: April 30, 2024
The City is committed to enriching its municipal art collection, which currently includes over 40 original artworks, by acquiring new pieces each year. Eligible artists should reside in Sainte-Thérèse or the vicinity, hold a professional artist status recognized by peers, and submit works in graphic arts or painting, encompassing a variety of techniques and mediums.
This initiative not only supports local artists and craftsmen by offering them a platform to present their work but also enhances the cultural vibrancy of the city and its residents.
