Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre opened its doors on the weekend for the first time this year. It was a late start to the year as the museum usually opens around the beginning of February rather than March.

“We pushed back the reopening a bit because it was hard to plan our events in the beginning of February,” explained Nancy Robert, executive director of the museum. With the omicron variant causing major uncertainty in the beginning of the year, the museum chose to delay the return of operations until things had calmed down substantially.

To kick of their recent reopening, the museum has partnered with the Sherbrooke Photo Club to create a themed display with the works done by the club’s artists. This year’s theme is “Lines”, a diverse display of photo’s taken by members of the club to encourage a unique perspective in photography while adding an individualized touch. By showcasing their works, the museum is hopeful that it will shine the light on local artists in the area and the wonderful work that the club has performed over the years. “We’re thrilled to showcase the work of our local artists and glad to work with the Club,” said Robert.
