Winter Picks [2020] – ArtWe Montréal

Each season of the year, the ArtWe team highlights work that shines with quality and originality. These are the gallery’s picks!

Far from being an object of everyday consumption, artwork is imbued with humanity and meaning. It’s a material escape from everyday life, expressing emotions and ideas beyond language.

This winter selection (5 artists / 10 works) invites you to discover the local art and artists of Montreal.

The pieces are a great way to adorn your walls with character and authenticity, with prices ranging from $150 to $2,500.
