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.
