Administrative history

Aubes 3935 was founded in November 1981 by Annie Molin Vasseur who managed the gallery until its closure on March 25, 1990. The gallery specialized in art books, and, among other things, it organized a national (1984) and an international (1986) contest for Canadian art books. The gallery later expanded to exhibit contemporary art (painting, drawing, sculpture, installation art, etc.) by artists from Quebec, the rest of Canada, Europe, and the United States.
