In 2003, the art critic for The Hour dubbed Art Mûr’s new location “Best New Space”; and The Montreal Mirror awarded us with “Best gallery directors” in their Year in Review for the visual arts. The Hour went on to say that Art Mûr is a “magnificent space that has quickly become one of the most attractive art sites in the city with overall solid programming” and the journalist from the Montreal Mirror says that: “I can always feel like I can pop by and see something interesting at Art Mûr”.
Art Mûr is a highly respected and dynamic gallery in Montreal and has become a required stop for curators, critics, and collectors. Founded in 1996, Art Mûr is one of the largest private galleries in Canada – with seven exhibition rooms totalling 14,000 square feet. Well-known for its programming, Art Mûr plays an important role in the Canadian visual arts scene. The gallery represents over thirty artists, with practices ranging from painting and sculpture to new media and performance art.
