Quebec Artist Marc Galipeau Opens at Galleria Dante

November 16, 2016

Galleria Dante will present a cocktail exhibition and opening reception for Quebec artist Marc Galipeau on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 6:00-10:00 pm, as part of this week's Puerto Vallarta Southside Shuffle.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - An art exhibition by Quebec artist Marc Galipeau opens at Galleria Dante on Friday, November 18, as part of the first Southside Shuffle of the 2016-2017 season. Stop by Puerto Vallarta's largest and most eclectic art gallery from 6-10 pm to meet the artist, view his art, and enjoy complimentary cocktails.

Marc Galipeau is a Quebec painter born on September 17, 1967 in the Monteregie region. Fascinated by the possibility to transpose life onto paper, he starts expressing himself artistically at a young age trying to emulate his older brother who was already mastering drawing as a child.


He studied to be a special education teacher, a profession he would practice until the age of 28, when he would finally make the jump to the uncertain world of professional art. He considers himself an artist by birth, self-taught, he gathered some experience along side professional artists and spent the next decade working and exhibiting throughout Quebec and France. Thanks to his keen sense of self promotion and his undeniable talent, Marc soon found himself a place in art galleries in Montreal, Quebec city and the Eastern Townships.

Through his travels and connections, he built himself a network of contacts that allowed him to start showing his work throughout Canada, the United States and parts of Europe. Largely influenced by artists such as Claude Théberge, Paul Tex Lecor and Claude Bonneau, among others, his works reflects an idyllic vision of everyday life that is bathed in happiness, light and color.

Marc's work is instantly recognizable by the soft, dreamlike atmospheres he is able to weave into his acrylic paintings. His characters, often appearing as if out of a dream, are done in true colors rendered in shimmering tones. His style could be said to have a folk art quality but the depth and the work that goes into its execution put him in a style all his own.

A serious and headstrong artist, Marc Galipeau's career is on a rising curve and shows no sign of slowing down its rise. This is his third season at Galleria Dante! Come meet Marc at Galleria Dante on Friday, November 18 from 6-10 pm.

While you are there, be sure to check out Di Vino Dante Wine & Tapas Bar, a new addition to the old hacienda that houses Galleria Dante and the gallery's sculpture garden. This chic wine and tapas bar is open Monday through Saturday from 2:00 to 11:00 pm.

Open Mon-Fri from 10 am to 5 pm, Galleria Dante is located at Basilio Badillo #269 in Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. For more information, call (322) 222-2477, visit GalleriaDante.com, or send an email to info(at)galleriadante.com.
