    I am looking for some information on Linda Balgrave.( Artist.)

    She resided in the Town of Rawdon Quebec.

    We have a couple of her paintings.I known that she past away

    Last year. I think that she was close to 100 years old.

    Would appreciate any info you might have on her.

    Thank you.

    I believe the artists name is Linda BLagrave, not Balgrave

    maybe you could contact the Rawdon Artist Circle

    best of luck

  3. Good Evening,

    Hello, we are students from the Institute without Boundaries and we were wondering if you could assist us in advertising for our upcoming exhibition entitled Region* on January 23, on your site.

    Thank you for your time and consideration,

    Dallas Cotterell
