The Montreal Art Center is a not-for-profit community arts center. Since 2010 we have been the home to hundreds of member artists working in over 50 open and private studio spaces, plus additional shared Co-Op Members shared spaces. We are located in Griffintown at 1844 William Street, in a historic patrimonial building built in 1879.
Our mission is to support, assist and promote locally based visual and performance artists. For our professional member artists we understand the challenges faced in their difficult chosen career path. For our emerging, amateur and hobby artists, we bring our members together in a strong collaborative community. We work diligently to support mutual areas of interests and goals.
The Montreal Art Center is dedicated to serving as an important resource for helping our local artists succeed and grow in their endeavors. We provide various participating membership programs to benefit our locally based artists’ community. We foster friendships and cultivate strategy to always be strengthening and helping to improve our artists’ development and skills.

Center and Museum’s
In celebration of the Montreal Art Center’s 10th anniversary and the Ruth Orkin centennial year, we are proud to announce an extraordinary exhibition titled An American Girl in Italy that will take place in 2021.
The exhibition is named for the iconic photograph taken by New York photojournalist Ruth Orkin, in Florence, Italy, in 1951. At this event, the Montreal Art Center will introduce its new Italian Renaissance gallery completed in 2021.
