About the Gallery
We proudly represent a variety of painters, sculptors, and printmakers whose work presents exceptional quality and value. Many of our artists are well-known, some are mid-career and others are notable up-and-comers. This interesting mix of talents ensures an exciting and wide-ranging selection of art in terms of both style and price.
Nothing beats the emotional reaction of seeing a piece of art that moves you. We are here to listen to your needs and finding the right piece of art that will do this.
From young couples decorating their first home to executives charged with building a corporate art collection, visitors to our gallery often look to us for advice and information. We look to develop long-term relationships with our clients for this reason.
Robert Lemay joined us via Zoom for his exhibition: “Say It With Flowers” on May 8th, 2021 to share some insight into his work, inspirations, and process.More...
“Coming home from Rome, I wanted to apply all of those inspiring things that I’d absorbed and thought about while away. I began to delve into the photos I’d taken in Rome along with some that I’d taken the previous year of peonies. I began to delve deeper into the structure and colours of flowers and work at building intense compositions that are both dramatic and freeing, bold and inviting. I want the viewer to feel immersed.
At the beginning of the pandemic, I just painted. I didn’t imagine that anyone would be wanting paintings for some time. This was perhaps just the freedom I needed to paint exactly what I wanted to paint. I painted expansive bouquets of flowers because they consoled, gave hope, and they were a sensory experience that I craved when we couldn’t do much else or go anywhere. They filled our home with hope and beauty in a time of uncertainty and worry. They were a balm and they uplifted when it was easy to despair.” - Robert Lemay

“it’s not about women vs. men, it’s about going against the patriarchal norms of society” March 6 – 24, 2021 International Women’s Day Group Exhibition 2021 #ChooseToChallenge

We are celebrating exclusively our women artists now and until March 24, 2021.
Historically women in the arts have been overshadowed by their male counterparts. Although we have found in Canada now this is perhaps less obvious and a focus in the art, it still is prominent throughout society, especially in other parts of the world. We have a long way to go for equality and this show intends to exhibit how strong and important art is regardless of gender. We need to remain strong and challenge you and ourselves to make a difference and step beyond gender bias. We celebrate you, our women artists, and the fabulous art you create.
