Thematic

Nothing like staring at a river running its course. The St. Francis River once had a stimulating effect on the region by greatly contributing to the economic development of the sector: Its water power attracted the first industries and provided for timber rafting to pulp and paper facilities. These waters surely inspired painter Jeannine Bourret in creating the visual artworks featured in the shed. You will certainly crack a smile when you read some of the thoughts of artist Doris Lussier, a Weedon native, conveyed by Père Gédéon, the character that made him famous.
