The facility – a converted pickle factory and storage warehouse – hosts one large gallery space, two large studio spaces. The Gallery is a unique exhibition space defined by 30 foot ceilings, concrete floors, a second level catwalk, children’s art gallery, and media lab. The space is easily adapted, converted, and transformed to accommodate the variety of events hosted by local and visiting artists.
The Gallery is situated in South Point Douglas and is within walking distance from The Forks, Waterfront Drive, The Aboriginal Centre, Thunderbird House, and the Exchange District.
