With a dual mission in contemporary Quebec art and regional history, the Musée du Bas-Saint-Laurent offers exhibitions and activities suitable for all audiences.
The permanent exhibition Faces and Landscapes showcase the history, people, and culture of the region from the Museum's photographic archives.
Coming to the Museum:
23 avril au 27 juin 2021 : Émilie Rondeau, Paysages en devenir
In the spring of 2021, the planting period takes on its full meaning inside the walls of the Museum. Natural materials such as seeds, games of scale, games of shadows, and colored lights, allow Bas-Laurentian artist Émilie Rondeau to create original installation works. As the crow flies or backward, the scent of organic materials floats in the air, and textures and colors revive the senses. Welcoming by their familiarity and surprise by their ingenuity, the works invite visitors to circulate and appreciate the surrounding agricultural land.
July 8 to September 26, 2021: Rita Letendre, Lignes de force
The traveling exhibition Rita Letendre. Lines of Force highlights the hard edge period of the artist and the motif that became his signature, that of a sharp point in striking colors. Discover this prolific artist who marked the field of Quebec abstract art!
July 8 to September 26, 2021: Objets de nouveau-Geneviève Thibault et Entre deux marées-Caroline Bolieu
These satellite exhibitions come from the 10th edition of the Kamouraska Photographic Meeting organized by the Kamouraska Art Center.
The Museum also offers you the Circuit Publiqu’Art Desjardins, which offers the general public more than forty monumental sculptures installed in the parks and green spaces of the city of Rivière-du-Loup. A true open-air exhibition, Publiqu’Art transforms the perception of modern Quebec art.
