"This exhibition surveys the sensibility of the Acadian community from the 1960s to the present time.

This exhibition achieves a logical form by virtue of four categories:- sculpture, folk art, painting, and conceptual criticism, presented with a due regard for the historical significance of these forms with in Canadian and international contexts." from the foreword / Avant-propos by BaernardRiordon. The artists: Marie-Helene Allain, Jacques Arseneault, Paul Babin, Paul Bourque, Herménégilde Chiasson, Medard Cormier, Yvon Gallant, Marcel Hebert, Leo. B.
