Fourth edition of the Saint-Ulric
Folk Art Sculptures Festival
Next August 12-13-14, 2016 Saint-Ulric will have the pleasure of welcoming you to the fourth annual edition of the original Festival in Quebec dedicated to folk art sculpture.
Folk Art sculptors are generally self-taught artists who find their inspiration in traditions of their geographic area, in their life experience, in the social environment they live in, or simply in their fertile imagination. Whether they originate in a rural or urban milieu, all are driven by the creative urge to express themselves. The goal of the festival is to provide an opportunity for the public to discover these creative individuals.
As they are not “professional” artists in the academic sense, they thus find themselves in a grey zone between Fine Art and Craftspeople without being recognized as “true” artists.
The Festival is the the opportunity for them be known to the public, to share their passion other creators like themselves, and share the exuberance of FOLK ART and its creators!
The Festival offers you :
An Exhibition-sale of Folk Art sculptures of artists from all the regions of Quebec ;
An outdoor weather vanes and whirligigs contest open to all;
