About

Although the activities of Artêria began in early 2005, the company was only truly born under its current name in 2007. Established by Geneviève Lévesque, the gallery developed quickly, thanks to the invaluable collaborators of the company, among whom are Christian Dorey, curator, Jonathan Auclair, business development agent, Stephanie Gagnon, gallery assistant, Meredith Lingerfelt, gallery assistant, Anaïs Girardot, art appraiser and Pascal Couturier, director of the graphic communication company Chocolat Media for the conception of the website.
