  • Artist: Melanie Desjardines

    Melanie is a  self-taught artist with a very active imagination. She loves experimenting with unique materials and techniques,  and finds her inspiration in some very odd places.  Watercolours are her first love, however owning a sheet metal shop has proven beneficial to her art-making practice.

1127 – 3rd Avenue is home to Prince George’s Dowtown HUB for all things ART! You will find RIDGESIDE ART  featuring local original art,   specialty art supplies, demos, and classes.  DESJARDINES DESIGNS AND ARTWORKS featuring the Art of Melanie Desjardines as well as collectible original art by some well known Canadian and International artists, and PHILOMENA HUGHES PHOTOGRAPHY and Studio, all under one roof at the GROOP GALLERY!  CHECK IT OUT!!

Hours of operation are Tuesday to Friday 11-2 and Saturday 12-4.  For private viewings of Melanie Desjardines gallery studio, outside of regular open hours please call 250-617-2940.

You will find an everchanging display of new artworks,  and always watch for upcoming events, features, and pop-up parties!  ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep posted on what’s going on!

It’s always so wonderful to see a new face at the Groop Gallery!  I encourage anyone who enters to share their experience with their friends, neighbors and relatives!  It’s an honor for Melanie Desjardines, the owner and curator of the gallery and an artist herself,  to be able to share some of the local artistic talent that we have her in our fine city of Prince George and region.  Check us out!
