One of the most well established private galleries in Montreal, this prestigious space specializes in contemporary Canadian art, especially in the Inuit communities from the north. Pieces range from traditional soapstone carvings to surprisingly complex and occasionally harrowing depictions of animals and other figures. Elca caters to a very upscale clientele.
This is one of Canada's foremost galleries of Native artwork, and has recently relocated to the poshest stretch of Sherbrooke Street West, next to many other prestigious galleries. A recent exhibit featured striking Inuit sculptures by well-known artists such as Toonoo Sharky and Omalluk Oshutsiaq. Other non-Native crafts include a selection of tableware, vases, wall hangings and other pieces from across Canada. Prices befit the gallery's reputation and its finicky taste.
