History

The Stewart Hall Art Gallery is located on the third floor of a beautiful home built by Charles MacLean in 1905. The building was acquired by the City of Pointe-Claire from May Beatrice Stewart for a symbolic $1 in 1954 and became the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre in 1959.

Vi Duncanson, who had been instrumental in founding the Centre, became its Administrative Director. She also got the ball rolling to open an art gallery in the Centre and was officially mandated to do so with help from Evan Turner, Director of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Jean-Paul Morisset, Director of Extension Services at the National Gallery of Canada, Professor Winthrop Judkins of McGill University, and his wife, Helen Judkins. The Stewart Hall Art Gallery opened its doors to the public in 1963.

The MacLean residence was already an art gallery: well before the Gallery’s official opening, the attic space on the third floor was used to present exhibits.

 

Programming

Working mostly with contemporary art, the Art Gallery actively participates in developing Quebec and Canadian modern art by both recognizing established artists and encouraging up-and-coming artists. Through its cultural mediation programs and educational activities (workshops, lectures, screenings and meetings), the Stewart Hall Art Gallery encourages the community to get involved and helps to make art accessible to everyone.
