What better way to welcome the end the summer by taking a moment to explore an outdoor art gallery full of works by emerging contemporary artists?

Artch, Montreal's largest public showcase dedicated to promising emerging artists, has returned for its fourth edition in the middle of downtown Dorchester Square park.

Running from September 8 to 19, it's just over ten days of showcasing 22 different artists in contemporary art and exhibiting more than a hundred works of art will be displayed in different arches. During the event, more than 30 free activities will be offered to anyone who would like to discuss and learn, purchase, or simply appreciate the visual arts on display.

Artch, Montreal's largest public showcase dedicated to promising emerging artists, is running from September 8 to 19 from noon to 7 p.m. each day in Dorchester Square in downtown Montreal. The event is free, and the art is available for purchase.
