Galerie Saint-Dizier was founded in 1995 by Brian Brisson, then a 25 year old art enthousiast. In 2002, the gallery's success led to its expansion, taking over the neighbouring space to become what the gallery is today, a 5000 square foot space located at 24 Saint-Paul Street West, in Montreal.
In 2006, Galerie Saint-Dizier graciously decided to lend and install a bronze sculpture by Canadian artist Rose-Aimée Bélanger entitled "Les Chuchoteuses" on the small public square across the street, now commonly refered to as "Placette Saint-Dizier". Mr. Brisson and Galerie Saint-Dizier would like to thank on behalf of the citizens of Old Montreal and the thousands of visitors that appreciate the sculpture every year, the SDC Vieux-Montréal and the City of Montréal for their precious collaboration.
In 2008, Brian Brisson appointed Emmanuel Gernigon as director to oversee the gallery's continued success and to maintain the gallery's tradition and dedication to the representation of contemporary Canadian artists.
In 2009, the gallery began venturing outside Quebec by attending annually the TORONTO INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR, the largest art fair in the country.
Our mandate since day one is to discover and introduce to our clientèle contemporary Canadian artists by means of exhibitions, fairs and the publication of catalogues dedicated to their artworks.
