At 23 years of age, Amélie Anne Gagné seems to possess nothing but a great number of qualities: an entrepreneurial spirit, a sharp knowledge of the Québec artistic milieu, an established network, a strategically situated venue, an ease of communication and a diploma in Visual Arts from Laval University. Daughter of painter Nathalie Chiasson, she has long benefited from a knowledge of the world of visual arts. Her passion led her to open her own gallery. Having collaborated to the positioning of her mother’s works on the American market, she is dedicated to highlighting in the best possible way the works of the artists she represents. To be discovered!
Located at 79 Sault-au-Matelot Street in Québec city, L’ESPRIT CRÉATIF art gallery opened its doors on December 6th last. Its opening benefited from exceptional press coverage, which we partly attribute to the gallery owner’s young age. Amélie Anne Gagné, 23 years old, seems to possess nothing but a great number of qualities: an entrepreneurial spirit, a sharp knowledge of the milieu, an awareness of artists evolving within the gallery world, an established connections network, a strategically situated venue, an ease of communication and a diploma in Visual Arts from Laval University. We should also mention that she fell into the pot when she was little, as she followed the career of her mother, painter Nathalie Chiasson. Amélie Anne Gagné has acquired knowledge of the world of galleries and its artists having from a young age been present at numerous artistic events tied to her mother’s career. She quickly developed a passion for visual arts and she even collaborated, during her studies, to the positioning of her mother’s works on the American market. Her mother, in fact, is an integral part of the adventure. In order to contribute to the launch and visibility of the gallery, she interrupted a longstanding collaboration with another Québec gallery to accompany her daughter in setting-up L’ESPRIT CRÉATIF.

Democratize, promote, be involved, innovate, bring together ; these are the leitmotifs of the mission the two owners of the Gruais-Grondin Gallery have set for themselves. The gallery is celebrating its successful first year of existence!
The two gallery owners, Viviane Gruais and Sylvie Grondin, are also professional artists. They naturally met while participating in various group exhibitions and other visual art events. Both possessed the necessary energy and ambition to contemplate becoming gallery owners. Hence, at the opportune time, they dove head first into the adventure without ever looking back. They’ve had no regret since and are still looking forward.Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more

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.
