Gaze upon
From Outaouais to the Gaspésie, Québec’s regions continue to inspire generations of artists. Whether they reflect the latest trends or are firmly entrenched in tradition, the art and handicrafts created here proffer a glimpse of the world as seen though the unique lens that is Québec in North America.
