    April 30, 2021 to July 16, 2022

    Over his long life Marcel Dargis, 92, has produced a monumental collection of lively and colorful paintings that bear witness to his respect and passion for the “small history” of Quebec. A painter of the naïve school, Dargis casts a critical and tender eye upon the past to trace as well as to honor it. His universe is an invitation to rediscover our patrimony.

  • Colorful birds at Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu

    Mid-May to mid-October 2021

    From Musée de Charlevoix’s popular art collection, rare birds have migrated to the Manoir Richelieu for the summer. These birds have both attitude and personality, but will you be able to recognize them? The artists model their subjects to evoke soul, flight, and movement. In hyper-realism or freely interpreted, these birds always charm. And their fabulous colors are sure to fascinate as do those of all birds, whether it be simple raven black or iridescent peacock plumage.

  • From Charlevoix to Abitibi

    June 10 to mid-October

    Between 1930 and 1950, many inhabitants of Charlevoix, at the behest of both the clergy and the Quebec government, made their way to Abitibi to open up the land and colonize the region. The story of this modern epic is told in an exhibition, produced by the Société d´histoire de Charlevoix, which pays homage to the people of Clermont who answered the call and emigrated in search of a promised agricultural dream.

    June 23 to November 14, 2021

    Traditional and contemporary arts are found in correspondence in this exhibition. Major works from the Loto Quebec collection are presented in side-by-side dialogue with artisans’ handmade objects from the Musée’s own collection.
