William Stuart: Portrait of an Island Artist, Lives and Landscapes of Western PEI
Join us for Eptek Art & Culture Centre’s Summer Exhibition, William Stuart: Portrait of an Island Artist, Lives and Landscapes of Western PEI. This retrospective exhibition dedicated to amateur artist, Reverend William Stuart, provides an historical glimpse into life and family from rural west Prince County in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. On display July 6 – October 1, 2021 in the main gallery.
Our Curators will be hosting special guided tours of the exhibition throughout the summer. See the event page for more information and to book your tickets now.
While at Eptek Art & Culture Centre, be sure to also visit the permanent exhibition on the history and architecture of Summerside.
Looking for something fun and educational to do with the kiddos? Eptek Art & Culture Centre is offering scavenger hunts that relate to the exhibits. These are available to folks who drop into the site, but you may wish to call ahead.
The members of the Eptek Centre Book Club meet on Thursday, February 4th at 7pm when they will discuss the book Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. In this enchanting, humorous, and heart-warming novel set in an English village, readers discover that sometimes, against all odds, life offers a second chance. This is a free event, but attendees are asked to contact Eptek Centre or the book club organizers or register.
