Sherbrooke, February 13th, 2017 – It is with pride that, once again, the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s Sherbrooke office promotes the talent of local artists through its art exhibitions. The works, created by artists from the Eastern Townships region, will be displayed at the RCGT office. This exhibition, open to public and set up in collaboration with La Grande Virée Artistique de Sherbrooke, will be held from February 14th, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., until June 10th, 2017.
