Le Salon des métiers d’art du Québec 2021 se déroulera du 9 au 19 décembre au Palais des Congrès de Montréal. Un nouvel espace de rendez-vous au coeur d’un site multifonctionnel et ultramoderne.



The Pastel Society of Eastern Canada (PSEC) is pleased to announce its 26th annual juried exhibition. Since a gallery exhibition could not be guaranteed because of the ongoing pandemic, PSEC decided to hold a second online and international version of the exhibition, “Les Pastellistes Online 2021”. This year, this major exhibition received entries from some 20 countries, even more than last year! This year’s include Japan, Australia, Russia, France, the Netherlands, Germany, China Taiwan and many more.

This remarkable annual exhibition will open online starting December 15, 2021. Simply go to PSEC’s Website: . We hope that you will make a note of this date and that you will keep in mind that all the artworks are for sale.


See these exhibits for free - Gaucher, Molinari, Tousignant : autour de Barnett Newman.

Several dates available with registration.

Where: Fondation Guido Molinari, 3290 Rue Sainte-Catherine Est, Montréal, QC.


Sonali Karnack speaks with the Chief Curator of the McMichael Canadian Art collection about their exhibit that shows works from women painters who were working in same era as The Group of Seven but have had much less visibility. The virtual exhibit is available for free online.

ROAAr: Rare & Special Collections, Osler, Art, and Archives.

As the McGill community commemorates its bicentennial, it might be an opportune time to find markers by which to measure the ways McGill has grown, both to celebrate achievements and to identify the areas in which growth and further change is required. One possible lens through which to view this change is the McGilliana: 200 Years of Student Life exhibition, now online.

And a cheery holiday message - Take a moment to pause, reflect, and learn more about some of the stories behind the rare and special objects held at McGill. ROAAr’s “One Minute Wonder” is a new video series that delves into extraordinary things in McGill Library’s collections in just sixty second flat. We look forward to making more of these shorts in order to showcase treasures and share the sense of wonder that comes along with working with these materials.

Something to think about: Photographer captures stunning—and heartbreaking—views on Vancouver Island.
