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 2020 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. 

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.

We aspire toward a vibrant presence on the streetscape with our display windows for window shopping 24/7! Please also explore this website; if you see something you like, order here and we'll arrange pickup or delivery. Or drop in during our open hours, Thursday-Saturday noon-5pm.

Thank you for supporting our gallery and our local artists!
