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.

Artist for the month of October - Artisanat Ste-Trinité

Artisanat Sainte-Trinité, a non-profit organization, aims to bring together women aged 16 and over who enjoy socializing, working with their hands, learning new techniques and sharing practical advice.

Our organization has almost 70 members who, for over 60 years, have generously put their talents to the benefit of the Clarence-Rockland community, while preserving the cultural heritage of ancestral and traditional manual work (sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, weaving, etc.)

Thus, in collaboration with the Snowsuit Club, artisans in our Wool Ball club have knit more than 300 sets of hats/mittens/scarves for children as well as baby blankets and other items. These handmade items have been filling the Rockland Help Center's Christmas baskets for several years.

We also help other community organizations during our sewing bees: Maison de la famille (superhero capes and sensory blankets), seven retirement centres across the the city (aprons/bibs), Victoria's Quilts (quilts for people with cancer) and others.

Once again, this year, in addition to our usual activities and donations, our group will actively participate in the Rockland Help Center's Radiothon by giving them a quilt and a basket full of craft items that they can give away.

Photo Gallery: Artisanat - Octobre 2023 will appear here on the public site.
