The Trestler House historic site (La Maison Trestler, in French) is celebrating its 225th anniversary this year, and has chosen to cap off 2023 with a special Holiday Exhibition. I'm honoured to have been included in this event, and to have one of my watercolours on display in such a stunning setting.
Running from October 26 through December 19, 2023, this exhibition features the works of more than thirty local artists in a variety of mediums. And in keeping with the theme of this art show each piece has a holiday motif, including my watercolour painting of pinecones and berries entitled "Festive boughs".
Opening hours for this exhibition are Tuesdays through Fridays from 0900 to noon, and then from 1300 to 1630, or on Sundays from 1300 to 1600. Trestler House is closed on Saturdays and Mondays. As they host occasional private events, Trestler House suggests calling before each visit to ensure that they’ll be open: 450.455.6290.
Although we don't have snow on the ground yet in Montréal, I've posted a photo that I took of Trestler House last winter as it looks so festive with the surrounding snow!
