about us

Continuing in the tradition of the Crichton Street Gallery, at the same location with many of the same excellent local artists, the new name of our neighbourhood gallery is intended to convey both continuity and change.

Yes, March 1 turned out to be an odd time to be opening a retail business. But we loaded up our picture windows with beautiful art to lighten those difficult days for passers-by – and we opened this online store for curbside pickup – and the community responded with an outpouring of support which sustained us. Thank you!

We carry positive, uplifting, beautiful, life-affirming art -- painting, mixed media, photography, ceramics, glass, fibre. 

And now we are open! You can visit the gallery during our Thursday through Sunday open hours. With COVID precautions of course, masks required, maximum 2 visitors plus one dog. We take credit and debits cards in the gallery; all transactions are touchless through this e-commerce site.

Our mission is to support local artists and local art. Art is essential and we hope you'll make art part of your daily life. Our window displays are always changing, and we hope you'll often stop to take a look. If you see something you like, order here and we'll arrange pickup or delivery. 

If you are an artist interested in showing in the gallery, please contact us.

Thank you for supporting our gallery and our local artists!
