Over the last 3 years spent in Montreal, I have increased the list of art places, museums & galleries to visit on a regular basis. One of my pleasure became to plan my own gallery tour, this in order to optimize the visit of all those places with a least a stop for a delicious coffee somewhere.
Galerie C.O.A. was one of my first entry in the list, so it’s always a pleasure to come back and to witness the evolution of the art selection, the new artists represented by the gallery and exhibited in their space (picture above is from last group exhibition called OUT in February 2020 and here two paintings by artist Thomas Labarthe).
In the vicinity, Galerie Youn or Galerie Art Mûr are also pretty interesting addresses to visit. They both have a different atmosphere and I really appreciate the color palette at Galerie C.O.A.. I’m often curious to witness the shape variations that assume a similar color palette for each new exhibition. Another aspect I’m very happy about those spaces is the staff that is always very responsive and eager to explain and describe the work of art they are presenting. And not to forget the presence of the artists which I have the chance to encounter at the occasion of a show opening or simply visiting over the weekend.
