The Gallery at The Cultch is a community focused space dedicated to providing progressive art to the residents of Vancouver’s East Side. It consists of two spaces, the Cafe Hallway and Lobby, and exhibits 20 – 30 artists every year. Like The Cultch itself, The Gallery’s mandate is to contribute to the enrichment of our city and community’s social and cultural life. Our particular goal is to create a strong visual art presence in the area and to engage the community with new contemporary art from established and emerging artists.
