As we were making our way to Sainte-Anne-des-Monts in Québec, we discovered a beautiful auberge, which is also an art gallery: the Centre d’Art Marcel Gagnon.
In 1984, the painter, sculptor and writer transformed a modest cottage into an art gallery that transformed itself over time and its creativity. Since its inception, it has become a centre where art, sea and the good table enchant the people of the region and tourists of passage.
The indoor and outdoor gallery, that features the sculptures of the “Grand Rassemblement,” is located on the St. Lawrence River in Sainte-Flavie in Gaspésie. We admired more than 80 life-size statues emerge from the sea. After enjoying dinner at their restaurant, the statues transformed as we explored the outdoor exhibit as a result of the outdoing tide and the vibrant sunset.
