Viewing Room (Salon virtuel)
As a special feature for Papier, Galerie.a is proud to present its first virtual viewing room featuring 7 invited artists. This exhibition brings together around thirty favourite works including paintings, sculptures, and photographs. The Galerie.a Viewing Room includes works by Eric Cardinal, Guillaume La Brie, Florence Leblanc, Mathieu Lévesque, François Mathieu, Sophie Privé, and Justine Skahan.
Through this special project, Galerie.a is celebrating our existing relationships while unveiling exciting new partnerships that will soon, we all hope, lead to gallery exhibitions in Quebec City.
Zoom meetings with artists
Watch for our Zoom meeting calendar, which will be posted at the beginning of the week. You are invited to virtually meet with a number of artists for a 30-minute videoconference. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn more about these artists’ work and to directly ask them any questions you may have.
We are pleased to announce that you can now purchase artworks online on the new transactional page at galeriea.ca. For now, ten works will be available at a time. The shop will be updated every Monday morning, and will showcase a single series, medium, or theme.

Starting today, you can find the prices of all artworks on our website. With a view to facilitating the purchasing process for art collectors, we have now made all the necessary information conveniently available in a single place. The moment a work is purchased, it is immediately removed from the site, so you can browse with the assurance that every work on display is available.
Galerie.a is pleased to offer free delivery to Quebec City and Montreal, throughout the month of June. This turnkey service has been developed to enhance the experience of art collectors during the fair.
