Art Galleries

A long-time landmark of accomplished artists and budding creators, les quartiers du canal has been recognized as the district of antique dealers and art lovers. The sector is booming with conventional and classic art and combinations of the two presented publicly and spontaneously! Creative workshops, galleries, museums, and venues welcome an astonishing local, regional and international crowd of art lovers, curiosity seekers, and visionaries. Today, it’s the expression of dazzling, inventive creativity that strikes the imagination of those who visit this district. During your visit, don’t forget to pass by the Parc des Meubliers to discover the Galerie Connexe. From May to October, this ephemeral art gallery exhibits eighteen works by ten talented artists selected by five art galleries in our neighborhoods (Carré des artistes, BBAM! Gallery, Galerie Division, Paul-Émile Rioux, Montréal Art Centre). Old buildings that have been converted into creative spaces serve as workshops and art galleries dedicated to sharing the works of experienced or promising emerging creators. These visionaries use daring shapes, colors and various materials to amaze anyone who stops to look. Painters, drawers, photographers, video artists and textile, digital and print artisans, installation artists and sculptors comprise the many artists represented in the neighborhoods. With its many art galleries and exhibition venues, les quartiers du canal makes an undeniable contribution to the development and influence of art in Montréal.
