Located in the heart of La Promenade Waterfront, we are the jewel of the newly created tourist destination. Our gallery is owned and operated by the Bathurst Art Society (1991) maintaining a gallery presence in our community since 1996. We now have over 50 members most of whom are local artists with work of all styles, and mediums on display at the gallery. Our art work is constantly changing in order to keep your visits fresh and stimulating.
In 2008, an addition was added to our gallery that doubled our space including a new entrance to the center of the Village. This allowed us to open a teaching/meeting room at the rear of the building to facilitate teaching art to our community. The mandate of the Bathurst Art Society is, “To unite artists of the community for purposes of friendship, networking, cultural development, and promotion of the arts.”
Visual arts are a vital part of our culture, a reflection of our society and the diversity of its people. Art is the documentation of a civilization over a period of time. It is crucial to retain this achievement for future generations.
Please come in to experience the developing role of art in our community which is an expression of the love the artists have for our Chaleur Bay region.
Chantal was born and raised in Bathurst, New Brunswick. After graduating she moved to Montreal where she studied Fashion Design at Lasalle College. Thereafter she realized that she needed something more artistic and visionary and so she started to specialize in creative portraiture and maternity. Chantal’s fine art photography style is dreamy and contemporary.
