35 years at Galerie de Bellefeuille
Galerie de Bellefeuille was founded in 1980 by Jacques and Helen Bellefeuille. At the time, their goal was to open a space to display the work of top-tier Canadian Artists. As their gallery grew in reputation and quality, Helen and Jacques Bellefeuille quickly recognized the underrepresentation of international art in the Canadian art market. Today the gallery strives to represent the best of emerging and established Canadian artists alongside the most remarkable works available on the international market. Now in its fourth decade of operation, Galerie de Bellefeuille is unparalleled in Canada. With a unique history of firsts among Canadian commercial contemporary art gallery, Galerie de Bellefeuille has played host to the first North American showing of Sophie Ryder and Nicolas Hicks, as well as the first Canadian solo exhibitions of Jim Dine and Damien Hirst.
Now with over twenty employees, the gallery has expanded to accommodate its growing operations. In June 2014, the gallery opened an additional 2,500 square feet of gallery space on the third floor of the flagship location, which is dedicated to the showing of the contemporary fine art print. June 2014 also marked the opening of Galerie de Bellefeuille 2, located across the street from the flagship store at 1366 ave Greene. Galerie de Bellefeuille 2 offers an additional 5,000 square feet, for a total of 6,500 square feet of new operational space. GdB2 will be dedicated to the gallery’s dynamic exhibition schedule of curated solo exhibitions, as well as themed and group shows.
