Galeria Canoa is a meeting place with art, design, and culture. The company has always sought to present to the market Brazilian contemporary artists of quality, distinctive style and professionalism. It always has given support and visibility to professionals that are recognized today in the Brazilian art market. During the last 5 years, with the new exposition venue, a large number of single exhibitions have taken place as several other activities to bring public and artists together.
