Gallerie Gallera is an art gallery and studio which is on the main floor of Pointe aux Pins Lodge, now known as “That Canadian Lodge”. It is located on a tranquil and secluded island in the heart of the Ottawa River. We provide a space for artists to pursue their art while developing their skills. Read on to see what’s new for summer 2016!
Welcome to 2016
The Gallerie Gallera opens on July 1st, 2016 with a mixture of creative works produced by artist Tina Michaud. On entering the lodge through the large green doors …note that we have added a new staircase this year and landing with flower boxes to the siderails….yes, railings! On entering you will come upon a Cafe setting with bar-room tables up scaled artistically
This year’s focus will be on floor cloths and the Dumoine River. I have done a number of drawing and paintings and have them on view.
There are new floor cloths created in traditional style and others created using today’s more vibrant colors that grace the floor of the gallery.
Framed illustrations from the children’s book, “Fang, Grandma’s Prized Cat” written by Muriel Davies done in soft watercolor by Tina.

Our Artist in Residence – Tina Michaud
When creating floor cloths Tina helps people tap into their creativity while discovering their soul’s expression using a “no-rules” approach. You can then take it home and walk all over it!
The studio, with its four large windows overlooking the river, by day, allows natural light to illuminate the space. The studio offers a wonderful view of the natural reserve across the river and any number of birds who inhabit this unspoiled region.
Watch for these notices if you are interested in joining us or email me, Tina Michaud. I’m here for you!
Over the past three years the gallery has been available for artists to hold exhibitions of their work. I have been encouraging “new” artists to use the gallery to begin their process to expose their work ( framing, produce business cards, bios, naming and pricing their works) and to date 14 artists have used the space.
