Our history

14 galleries filled with unique treasures to discover

Turning dreams into reality - The Beauchamp Art Galleries began as a lovers’ dream.

In the early 90s, Claudette and Marc Beauchamp cherished the idea of opening an art gallery. However, the economic situation of the time discouraged this kind of initiative, with several well-established galleries being forced to close their doors. Not to be deterred, Claudette and Marc proceeded with the opening of their Royal Art Gallery in 1993, located at 53, rue Saint-Pierre, at the corner of the Côte de la Montagne, the oldest streets in Quebec City. Armed with a formidable business sense and a remarkable taste for works of art, the couple gave free rein to their love of paintings by Quebec artists. Over the next few months, the young gallery took on the appearance of a small museum, and more and more visitors would pass through its doors to revel in the beauty of the works on display.

The Beauchamp family: a family quartet nourished by a common passion, the promotion of beauty.

Sophie and Vincent, Claudette and Marc’s two children, share their parents' enthusiasm for visual art and, one thing lead to another, as they gained experience in curating works of art. A few years later, the premises began to be a little too cramped to accommodate all the works that the Beauchamp family wanted to promote, and the acquisition of additional space was necessary.

The passion for beauty - A family affair

A business association was woven between the parents and their children, an organization in which each family member would become the owner of their own gallery location. What was originally a partnership, is now a family business nourished by a common passion: promoting artists and their beautiful work.


Rue du Sault-au-Matelot, Quebec

Bel Art, Beauchamp and Beauchamp

Five years passed since Galerie Royale had opened it’s doors, and during this time the family had established two other galleries: Bel Art and Beauchamp et Beauchamp.

Located side by side, between rue Saint-Pierre and rue du Sault-au-Matelot, the Bel Art and Beauchamp et Beauchamp galleries occupy a heritage building whose construction dates back to 1647. Visitors who walk through the doors of these two new galleries are immediately taken by the bold architecture that combines the classic charm of old stone, and the contemporary style of the interior design.


An authority in the world of art galleries

As for the works themselves, they abound in a joyful variety, skilfully staged by the gallery owners. Thus the Beauchamp signature was born, which would soon become a recognized reference in the gallery world.

Beauchamp Family Foundation Fund

Creativity and youth coming together in a powerful way. At the origin of artistic creation, there is always a child-like urge to remake the world in one’s own way. At times, poverty may interfere, and may go so far as to extinguish the most promising hopes.

“I am two things that cannot be ridiculous: a savage and a child." - Paul Gauguin

In 2008, the Beauchamp family established the Beauchamp Family Foundation Fund to aid children and self-help groups that support those in need. A network between artists and the Beauchamp Art Galleries was created to raise money through special events, auctions, and donations. Several of their artists graciously offer their artworks to be sold with the entire proceeds to be donated to the Beauchamp Family Foundation. In addition, at each exhibition, a portion of the sums generated is donated by the Beauchamp Art Galleries to the Foundation. Buy happiness, give happiness.


Donations and Fundraising

Throughout the year, the Beauchamp Art Galleries participate in various activities to support several organizations such as Pignon Bleu, Centraide, the Red Cross, the Rotary Club, the Salvation Army, the Center de pédiatrie sociale de Québec and the Canadian Cancer Society as part of their fundraising campaigns.
