At the regular session of Carleton Place Council on Tuesday Oct 22nd, BIA Coordinator Kate Murray appeared with local artist Diane Jolicoeur to present a large wall-mountable artwork crafted by Diane (manager of the Creative Studio on Bridge St) to commemorate the town’s 200th anniversary. Her work is an enlarged 3-dimensional replica of the anniversary logo that’s been in use in various promotions and publications throughout the year.  The number 200, (done in raised wood) was signed by local residents at the Bridge Street Bazaar event held in August before being sealed onto the wood with clear-coat.  In the background on the base of the work, the familiar stylized town hall logo and the years of settlement and this current one, peak out through the large numerals. The town’s plans are to choose a suitable and prominent public location to mount Diane’s creation.
