La Fab is getting a facelift

Reopening scheduled for May 31, 2018

After the tribulations caused by the pipe freeze last December, La Fab Arts Centre is looking forward to reopening its doors. We now know that insurers will pay for replacing radiators, repairing the pipe in the shop ceiling, and sanding and varnishing the floors on the ground floor.

To complete this facelift, the board of directors undertook to repair and repaint the walls. A big thank you to all the members who gave a hand and to Rona l'entrepôt du Plateau for the ten gallons of paint they generously donated. If you would like to help, write to: art@culturechelsea.ca 

Here are some pictures showing our members hard at work:
