While many of us are stuck in that in-between funk, trying to celebrate the last of the freedom summer has to offer while also trying to prepare for the return to school or work, many galleries are stuck in the “between exhibits” funk. Still, there is plenty to see and do in good old Montreal before the art scene booms again within the next few weeks. Here are some of my suggestions:

World Press Photo Montreal

Every day from 10 to 10, Marché Bonsecours
