A photographic essay of the Grande Cascapedia

Exhibition by Barry Le Blanc

From August 2nd to the 25th, at the Cascapedia River Museum, the landscape photographer, Barry Le Blanc, will exhibit striking images of this internationally renowned salmon river: icy conditions, spring thaw, seasonal fogs, the photographer from Cascapedia-St-Jules has managed to capture the changing spirit of the Grand Cascapedia. He brings to light many beautiful spots between the Relais de La Cache at km 62 and the estuary, unveiling small islands, bends, white waters, hills and mountains, all natural landmarks of this fantastic landscape. Of course, fishermen and canoes are also part of the scenery.

2012 - Princess Louise – A Woman of Substance

The Princess Louise temporary exhibition is currently on display at the Cascapedia River Museum for the 2012 season.

This young woman was born a princess to one of the most formidable women of history, Queen Victoria. She was blessed with beauty, intelligence, and position. She was a strong, independent woman of artistic temperament and exquisite taste. She had an independent mind and strong convictions. Although controversial at times, she could never be faulted for hypocrisy or lack of human compassion. The exhibition will bring to life many aspects of her life including her connection to the Cascapedia River.

Princess Louise, Queen Victoria’s daughter, came to the river in 1879 with her husband the Marquis of Lorne, who was Governor General of Canada at the time. The following year they had the first pre-fabricated building made in Canada shipped to the river. She was an angler and an artist, and it has been said that her best piece of Canadian art was done while here on the river. It was also said that her happiest days spent in Canada were on the Cascapedia River.
