The “Entrepreneurs for Education” event at your gallery in Montréal was the first of its kind for Stanstead College, and we would like to thank you sincerely for all your support. We could not have done this without you.
The venue was superb, and the guests enjoyed learning about Stanstead College and the Germain family’s success story. Perhaps we will see you at future Stanstead College events.
Until then, please accept our best regards,
I want to thank you again for a great night. You and your staff were super helpful and professional, and took care of everything down to the smallest details. It made my job much easier. It was a very enjoyable experience. 🙂

Parking and Location
We are located in downtown Montreal, in the heart of its cultural and business district, at 279 Sherbrooke West, corner of Parc Avenue and Bleury. The gallery is on the 2nd floor, dominating the corner of Parc Avenue and Sherbrooke with its 35 windows. The building is almost a hundred years old, and it is one of the rare buildings in Montreal to have retained its original entry hall design.
Metro : A two-minute walk from the Place-des-Arts Metro (exit Bleury).
Parking : A two-minute walk from the parking lot on Bleury (at a cost of $12 after 5pm and weekends).
Built in the 1920s, the building that houses Gallery Gora has had quite a history. From the 1920’s to the early 1950’s, it was used by Teller Motor Sales Ltd, a dealership for Chrysler, Plymouth, and Ford automobiles. The upper levels, which were once used as a mechanic shop, now house contemporary art. Originally, the showroom was located on the ground floor and it later housed a Royal Bank of Canada branch. Today, the 3rd generation of the Teller family still maintains its ownership of the building.
