The marriage of baby blue, soft white and royal yellow swirled across a canvas to create the perfect sunrise setting. The layers of an image, not all at once seen, but when brought together ignite a reaction and feeling. The painting that leaves a lasting impression.These are the things that art can inspire and one of the reasons Galerie Q was established.
We believe arts and culture have the power to change and influence lives and communities through education in a positive way and as a not for profit, social enterprise our goal is to achieve this through programming of exhibitions, exploring the diversity of culture and by revisiting history to generate curiosity and productive public debates. As we are inspired, we wish for you to be as well. With a focus on French Canadian artwork, our gallery currently features paintings by Ginet Leblond, Antoine Dumas, Francesco Iacurto, Bruno Cote and as of January, RCA painter Claude Picher (1927-1998).
Galerie Q is located in Cavan, Ontario just outside of Peterborough in a storied local building where art and style are showcased. We recently celebrated our Grand Opening and the local community was warmly welcomed. Peterborough Mayor Daryl Bennett and his wife Jewell were in attendance, along with Bishop William Terrence McGrattan, Cavan-Monaghan Mayor Scott McFadden, Peterborough City Councillor Lesley Parnell and Cavan Ward Councillor Jordan Landry. Artist Ginet Leblond joined us for the festivities and guests were free to peruse the paintings and enjoy some delicious food and our Q label wine. It was wonderful to open the doors of Galerie Q to so many interesting and lovely guests and we hope you all had as fabulous of an evening as we did.
So that's a little bit about us, now it's all about you - the serious collectors and investors and the community of our friends. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for daily updates, visit our website for any and all information you may need, and stop by the Galerie to see some of the beautiful paintings first hand. We look forward to the future of Galerie Q and the growth of those relationships.
Stay tuned for future exhibits and events!
