Marcel Huguet L’urbanité re-visitée These lithographic works are part of a great symbolic narrative elaborated over the past two years from original street photographs. The artist seeks to evoke various aspect of life in the city today. Marcel Huguet is a multidisciplinary self-taught artist, he has participated in many recent solo and collective exhititions in Montreal, Québec, Ville-Marie (Témiscamingue), Toronto, Vancouver and Sofia (Bulgaria). Marcel is a member of Montreal based l’Atelier circulaire (printed art and creation) in Montréal, which showcases his works regularly in the Gallery, as does Open Studio in Toronto.

Amer Rust Amer presents oxidised paintings on steel made with lace stencils. Just like the rust process he used, the resulting old tapestry aspect brings to mind the deterioration and transformation of matter following the passage of time. Amer was born in Montréal, Québec, where he lives and works. He graduated in graphic arts at Cegep Ahuntsic and completed a bachelor's degree in commerce at McGill University. He worked in the printing sector and the metal transformation field for more than 20 years. Solo Exhibitions: Galerie Luz, Montréal, Canada « Armistice » 2019 & « Stripes » 2018. Permanent Collective Exhibition: Galerie Artêria, Bromont, Canada, since 2018. Art fairs: Art Market San Francisco, USA (2019), Affordable Art Fair New York, USA (2019), Sofa Chicago, USA (2018).

Jibé Laurin Jibé Laurin works and lives in Montréal. She graduated in Graphic Design from Cegep Ahuntsic and completed a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts with Major in Design Art at Concordia University. Solo exhibition: Galerie Luz, Montreal (2018), Collective exhibition: Maison de la culture Frontenac, Montreal (1994). Jibé Laurin presents a low relief artwork made from recycled car pieces and steel. Her passion for patinas and interest for environment has leaded her to work with this colorful and singular material. "Steel Life 1" or "La mosaïque de la ferrailleuse" is the first artwork of a series made from steel and inspired by nature.

Theo Golb In the early years he was strongly influenced by Cubism and Suprematism. His style developed along a very long and complex path, ultimately taking its current form around 2009 following a short stay in Morocco – the country he calls “the promised land, where colours turn rapturous under a divine light.” He then abandoned his oils for acrylics and collage, creating his own mixed technique.
