In a few words

Located in the heart of St-Jean-Port-Joli, Le vivoir offers an immersion in the world of Quebec crafts and visual art.

7 artists' studios open to the public are set up on the ground floor. The concept of glass partitions allows visitors to see the tools used by the artists, to discover the raw materials used and to dive into their creative world. Sometimes, if you are lucky, you will have the opportunity to see artists at work in real time!

End the experience with a period of contemplation in our vast boutique with art gallery trends, where the creations of more than 50 Quebec artists are presented.

From travel souvenirs to decorative objects through collectible pieces, you will discover a whole range of creations from here!

Welcome to the world of crafts and visual art from Quebec!

For Real!

Every year I tell myself that this will be my last year of sculpture at Le Vivoir, but finally, I get more and more fond of it, year after year! Here I am in my fourth season at Le Vivoir!

André Médard Bourgault, Le Vivoir

    On vacation an hour from home!

    Ah ! Saint-Jean-Port-Joli ! Here is a village that lives up to its name! As I am lucky enough to live in the neighbouring MRC, only an hour away, it is not uncommon for me to head to Saint-Jean-Port-Joli for one or two days, simply to get a change of scenery. The experience works like a charm: every time I take exit 414 off the 20, I immediately switch to "vacation" mode, even though I'm only a few steps from home!
