The Griffintown Gallery supports artists of many different schools of discipline, such as narrative figuration, pop art, and abstract art. With the idea of diversity at the forefront, the gallery presents internationally renowned artists such as Jean-Paul Riopelle and Salvador Dalí alongside contemporary talents such as the Québécois artists Diane Brouillette and Jean Tannous.
From the initiative of owner Sylvain Fortier, the Griffintown Gallery was born as an offshoot of the popular Galerie d’Art Château Frontenac in Québec City, which in the past has exhibited the monumental works of art “Alice in Wonderland” and “Space Elephant” by Salvador Dalí on the Terrasse Dufferin.
The “Space Elephant” will be found henceforth in the Parc des Meubliers directly across from the gallery, announcing the gallery’s opening in a monumental fashion.
The Galerie d’Art Château Frontenac remains open and still contains its surprising permanent collection, as well as its temporary expositions.
