Gabrielle de Montmollin | Selected Works

A selection of images by Gabrielle de Montmollin was on display at Mahtay Cafe (241 St. Paul Street, St. Catharines) in the Fall of 2022. These include works from the series Bird Women, Leading Ladies and Carnevale at the Hotel of the Bridge of Sighs.
Gabrielle de Montmollin is a Welland based artist and co founder of AIH Studios (179 East Main in downtown Welland). This is the second in a series of six exhibitions of Niagara based artists I’m curating in the Mahtay space.

Welland: Times Present Times Past

Sandy Fairbairn has been taking photographs of Niagara for over forty years, focusing on the people and places around him. His images of Niagara stretch back to the 1970s, and some of the scenes presented in Welland: Time Present Time Past will be shown in the Rose City for the very first time. I curated this exhibition, and offer some ideas that informed it, and that grew out of it.

Welland: Times Present Times Past

AIH Studios is very pleased to present Sandy Fairbairn’s exhibition Welland: Times Present Times Past from February 15th to March 15th 2020. Curated by Bart Gazzola, the opening reception for Welland: Times Present Times Past will be on Saturday, February 15th from 2 to 5 PM.

AIH Studios in Welland

Tony Calzetta and Gabrielle de Montmollin have turned a space in downtown Welland into a combined studio, gallery and living space, and I visited them to see their artwork and their role in shifting the community to one where culture is more prevalent.
