Galerie Carlos

More than a cafeteria

The Mission’s Webster Pavilion is home to Galerie Carlos. The gallery is an initiative of Carlos Anglarill, counsellor at the Mission since 2005 and the gallery’s first curator at its inception in 2009. Every six weeks, the cafeteria walls are decked with original creations that can be admired by Mission clients, staff and volunteers.

Since the gallery’s re-opening in October 2016, artists Karen Hosker and Susan Porter have been curating the gallery, selecting unique and imaginative pieces from Montreal artists. Additionally beautified by recent renovations, the cafeteria has been enhanced into a space meant for enjoyment as well as for its practical use. Read more about the gallery’s re-opening here.

Part of the city’s cultural scene

In March 2014, the Mission’s Webster Pavilion took part in the 15th annual MONTREAL EN LUMIÈRE festival by inviting the public to visit its facilities.

During the festival’s Nuit blanche closing celebration, Montrealers got to see another facet of the Mission: the works of seven local artists adorned the walls of its cafeteria and adjoining Café Mission, transforming the space into a contemporary art gallery. Works were chosen based on quality and originality, as well as for their sensitivity to the reality experienced by homeless people. Mission staff and volunteers were on site to greet guests and accept donations.

Biography

I paint my personal universe which has inhabited my soul since the dawn of time. My creations manifest themselves mainly through the inspiration that I derive from music which harmoniously unleashes and defines my imagination. My heart is a planet from which my familiar ideas come to life through my various encounters, my collection of memories, a great admiration and wonder for my musical muses, the unusual beauty in life and the brave hearted creatures of this world or otherwise.

I assimilate all of the elements that leave an impression on me and eventually take residence within me; I then transform them into a landscape inhabited by characters that represent freedom, sincerity and solidarity. Each of my works conveys a story in which strong ties are solidified and my inspirational characters are guarded by protective beings.

The various media that I use are my creative allies; Acrylic, charcoal, and dry pastel merge together to create symbolic landmarks scintillating with vibrant color! I also incorporate in my paintings collages of recycled matter, textiles and paper. I like to create, develop and explore my own methods freely and without constraints. My mission as an artist is to build bridges between my artwork’s universe and the viewer’s, inviting reflection, comfort and revelation.
