began in 1986, when Jacques Tremblay and Rosanne Duchesne arrived in the magnificent Charlevoix region to take the reins of the art
gallery that elegantly complemented the Salon Rose in the Manoir Richelieu.
Le P'tit Bonheur is both spacious and intimate, with 6,000 square feet of exhibition space that makes visitors feel like they have entered a friend’s home, from the moment they walk through the front door. The small rooms on the ground floor and the more generous spaces upstairs, decorated with the owners’ antique glassware collection, introduce art enthusiasts to a vast range of works in a welcoming ambience.
As impressive and welcoming as it may be, a gallery ultimately impresses solely with the art it exhibits. Le P'tit Bonheur is committed to providing art lovers and collectors with a wide high-quality selection of figurative works by seasoned artists from across Canada. Some thirty of Canada’s most renowned painters and sculptors permanently exhibit their work at Le P’tit Bonheur.
Purchase by installments, without fees or interest
Another unique aspect of Le P’tit Bonheur’s special attention to customers is its “courtesy service” of making purchases through monthly payments with no fees or interest. This business decision, made in 1986 at a time when such service was rarely advertised or accessible, heralded the start of a relationship built on deep, lasting trust in the gallery’s patrons. “There is no doubt that this decision was a very promising turning point that benefited our customers, and these same customers are deserving of our heartfelt thanks. Without them, we would not be here today and without them, we could not pursue our own dreams and those of our artists.”
-Marie-Eve Tremblay, Director
A passion, a vision
