CORNWALL, Ontario – Lynne Labelle loves to paint, and she’s put her work on full display for the first time at Cailuan Gallery and Art Supplies in Cornwall, ON. Stretching three days, Saturday, January 11 marked the final day of Labelle’s art show, featuring her own original works.

“She’s doing an art show because she wants to share her love of art with the world,” said Mandy Prevost, who was working alongside Labelle during her exhibit. “And, also to establish herself within the local art community.”

Labelle has been painting for about two years, and this marks her debut exhibit. She has sold 11 pieces during the past week. Labelle is hoping to return next year with another exhibit.

The art show ran from Thursday, Jan 9 to Sunday, January 11. A reception was held on Thursday to kick off the exhibit. Labelle also performed a live painting experience, with the piece on full display during the remainder of the show.
