Different exhibitions and events happen in Galerie 203 all the time, so there's always something new for visitors to see and experience.

And when events are held, they're done big. A red carpet typically awaits you outside on rue Notre-Dame, making you feel like royalty as you walk in.

During the events, a bar with all kinds of alcohols and wines, which are usually locally made, is available. There's also a DJ to set the vibe for the evening.

Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.

A beautiful piano sits in the middle of the gallery, making it feel like you've stepped foot in a scene from The Great Gatsby.

The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
