The place is located on the charming and historic Avenue Royale in Château-Richer, on the mythical Côte-de-Beaupré. The bicentennial stone building is more than welcoming. Galerie St-Aubin-Marion occupies the summer kitchen area, and the painters’ workshop overlooking the space is accessible via a millers’ staircase; all to the greatest enjoyment of visitors such as myself. I am thrilled!
This is what two artists at the peak of their artistry are proposing to the public at large, visual art aficionados and collectors. Yvon St-Aubin and Louise Marion greatly enjoy meeting people who are interested in their work. Together, these artists have been travelling across Québec, Canada and Europe. They have just settled in their new dwellings on the “Chemin du Roy”, where they opened their gallery on August 1st 2016. The realization of a dream here takes on its full dimension with respect to the creative process and with life as a whole. It’s on a piece of land, conceded to Toussaint Toupin in 1650, that artists will gather to paint from nature, while sketching and painting workshops will be held in parallel, dispensed by Yvon St-Aubin during summer and fall.
Galerie St-Aubin-Marion, 8361, Avenue Royale, Château-Richer. From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, 7 days a week, between May 1st and October 31st of each year. For information: 514 942-2514
