Michel Tremblay: Beyond the Words

Pensionnat du Saint-Nom-de-Marie
628, chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, Outremont


The event

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 10th edition of Michel Tremblay’s sale of watercolours!

Every winter, Michel Tremblay, the emblematic figure of Québec literature and dramaturgy, paints watercolours daily. Painting allows him to rest in between writing periods. “In fact, it is the only thing that lets me escape from my writing,” he confides. Every two years, Michel Tremblay offers almost 300 watercolours to an organisation of his choice through a benefit auction. Interligne is delighted and privileged to have been chosen to host this year’s edition.

Therefore, on June 3, 2018 at Pensionnat du Saint-Nom-de-Marie, we invite you to discover another side of Michel Tremblay:



  • 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.: Doors open. Come visit us! Get your watercolour at sale price of place your bid at the silent auction. Michel Tremblay will be on site to welcome you.


  • 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.: Cocktail dinner for those participating in the live auction (upon registration)


  • 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.: Live auction (upon registration)


Hosts, meet-and-greet with artists, and music will grace the event! The five watercolours from Michel Tremblay’s newest release « Le peintre d’aquarelles » will also be featured.

Will you be outside of Montréal and want to participate? Connect to our auction on the web and you will be able to get your hands on a work of art signed by one of Québec culture’s monoliths!

You cannot participate, but the success of this event is important to you? You can also contribute to many of our projects on soutenir.interligne.co.
