The Clarence-Rockland Art Gallery is located on the main level of the Cultural and Recreational Complex (YMCA), 1525 du Parc Avenue. The Gallery is open during Clarence-Rockland YMCA regular business hours and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free.

Gallery exhibitions feature the work of local artists working in all types of media. The Gallery presents a total of approximately 10 exhibitions annually, each of which lasts approximately four weeks.

A public gallery is a forum for the exploration of diverse ideas. The City of Clarence-Rockland supports exhibits that are inclusive of our diverse community, including ancestry, ability, age, culture, gender, language, race and sexual orientation.


Due to Covid-19, opening hours at the YMCA may be impacted. Please contact the Y for the latest opening hours 343-804-0720.

March Artist - Mel Faucher

The March artist is Mel Faucher, owner-founder of PourMyMind Abstract Arts and Events. Mel was born and raised in Ottawa Ontario and has immersed herself in creative activities since a young age. 

Despite a passion for art, as she got older it took a backseat to other interests, until she had a mini brain stroke in 2017 caused by a tumor removed in October 30, 2018. Her life was turned upside down. 

She believes that she was given a second chance in life. That is when she decided to create her small business based on her mental health struggles. 

PourMyMind Abstract Arts and Events is a social event that offers fluid art workshops and health and wellness classes to help our mental health community.
