The area
Neighbourhood: Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.

Wonderful Gallery

This little gem of a gallery is tons of fun. The owners are passionate about the artists they represent. I found lots of cool things. Don’t miss the record collection on offer - lots of cool titles.
A great place to visit - time flys by as there is so much to see.

I never post on-line reviews but this time I felt compelled to do so after my visit to BBAM! Gallery. I was interested in an artist who's career they are actively helping to promote after seeing his work at another gallery. Even tho I ended up buying a piece from another exhibition, Alison and Ralph who created BBAM Gallery still facilitated a long and enriching meeting with me and the artist over drinks and food and they couldn't have been more accommodating, supportive and invested in the artists they represent. This was despite the fact that I purchased a piece from another venue - they felt regardless of what their own financial interests may be, the artist, and their connection to their audience is paramount and that is an unfortunate rarity in the artworld. Much praise to them, their program and their mission - a must-see when in Montreal for anyone and everyone interested in burgeoning art scene and emerging artists!!!
