DCA artist-educators, members of the AAD, DCA office staff, of course, DCA board members and DCA adult students who returned to us year after year. It is very gratifying to see how many have been encouraged by their association with the gallery and with our courses to sustain and enlarge their artistic practices.
I salute Jane Needles and the current Board for committing to the sound functioning of an arts-based not-for-profit association, to its continued growth and increased professionalism. It is through this quality service that the Dollard Centre for the Arts distinguishes itself in its service to Dollard’s, and by extension, the West Island’s communities. In this regard, it is also gratifying to know that the relationship between the DCA and City employees has become collaborative and respectful and that DCA office, gallery and studio visibility, access and facilities are being improved. For this, thanks must be expressed to Mayor Alex Bottausci and Dollard City Council.
Looking forward to the DCA’s future successes and accomplishments in my community and contributing to these ends.”
