Vivoir's studios

Immerse yourself in the universe of our resident artists

The first floor of the Vivoir is made up of open to the public artists' studios. Your visit in this stimulating environment will allow you to demystify the creation of the artworks of some of the Quebec artists whom are represented in the boutique-gallery on the floor above.

The concept

The innovative concept of ours open to the public studios resides in the glass partitions which are on either side of a corridor that you are invited to walk through. This unique space allows you to see inside artist's workshops in order to discover the atmosphere. There you will see tools, pieces being created and ideas in turmoil. You might even have the chance to meet artists at work!

Artists are free to schedule and the Vivoir team cannot know in advance which artist will be present at what times.

Artists in the studio

Le Vivoir is proud to present its collaborators, whose talent you will have the chance to see during your visit to the Vivoir workshops!

Jewellery and pyrography

Behind Annie Roussel’s works lies a well-kept secret. Tiny letters engraved on the material form meaningful lines and textures that reveal the artist’s own texts. This intimate relationship between literature and visual arts plunges us into a world steeped in poetry and pure beauty!

Glass and plants

Through her creations, Dominique Beaupré St-Pierre offers a surprising union between the living and the material. By integrating glass to plants, she offers us delicate and evolutionary sculptures. You will most likely find Dominique behind her the flame of her blowtorch.

Judith Dubord creates with glass and ceramics. As an artist of many talents, she inspires with her delicate collections; the result of a unique relationship with matter. It is a real delight to see her at work.

Reliure utilitaire

It is Francine Duval who occupies the workshop of the transmission of know-how of the Vivoir this year. Indeed, she uses the bookbinding workshop to transmit the old techniques of this practice which unfortunately tends to disappear.
