URBAN GALLERY An Artist and Merchant Project -Côte-des-Neiges and Notre-Dame-de-Grâce

Start Date: Wed 17 Sep, 2014
End Date: Mon 17 Nov, 2014

Artistic Events

Montreal visual artist Leiba Rustin will be exhibiting as part of the URBAN GALLERY, an artist-merchant initiative of the Corporation de développement économique communautaire - CDEC - Côte-des-Neiges/Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

Two of her pastels from the series DRIVING HOME were selected and will be shown at Cafe Chimera - 5768 Rue Sherbrooke W. - and Piano Prestige - 6078 Rue Sherbrooke W.

Initially an attempt to capture the motion of the daily passage of driving home from her studio, she did not realise how much this daily drive was about to change.

Rue Saint Rémi, Rue Saint-Jacques, Boulevard Décarie, Boulevard De Maisonneuve – were about to be forever altered with the construction of the McGill University Health Centre. As its massive shape began to rise on the edge of the Falaise Saint-Jacques, her familiar expansive views were transformed as underpasses were removed and streets were blocked off and diverted.

DRIVING HOME has become an unexpected meditation on the tensions between road and sky, location and horizon, and the subtleties of change, memory and place.

What better subject for an URBAN GALLERY in the storefronts and local businesses of Sherbrooke Street West?

Begin your next museum visit in NDG, and discover sixteen local artists and the diverse businesses that support the artistic richness of the borough of Côte des Neiges/Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

Paintings & Drawings by Dorothy Grostern
Vernissage Sept 11th 5 to 8pm
Exhibition Continues until Sept 20th

My House Has Many Rooms is a unique exhibition, a behind the scenes, as it were, of the creation of a book by the same title; a collection of memories in the form of delicate and emotionally charged drawings, that on the pages of the book were woven into a visual narrative. Most of the works on display appear in the publication. The words that accompany the drawings in the book are absent here, the pictures left to tell their story. Do stop and listen.

Just a few of Montreal's many independent bookstores...

Mon 11 Aug, 2014 - Spotlight

With Chapters downtown about to close its doors, much of the conversation turned to what this closure would mean for Montreal's independent bookstores. It remains to be seen whether this is a sign of change to come.

One thing's for sure, though: Montreal is full of bookshops run by passionate and knowledgeable people who make a point of supporting the local arts community by selling writings and wares from Quebec authors and artisans, hosting readings and launches, and so much more.

This list from The Main is a great start to exploring Montreal's independent bookstores and stock up for your summer reading needs! Oh, and we would be remiss if we didn't add ELAN member Librairie Drawn + Quarterly to this bookstore itinerary.
