We are a modern art gallery and event venue located in historic Corktown on Queen Street East, a few blocks north of Toronto’s Distillery District. Street Parking is available, and is free of charge after 6 PM daily.


We offer artists a commission-free exhibition space to showcase their artworks for a month in our beautiful downtown gallery space -artists pay a rental fee, and we do the art installation, labeling and invitation and staff the gallery Monday through Saturday, our PR rep arranges the social media and contacts media outlets. We also provide the promotions and advertising, host a Reception and feature the exhibition on our website. Exhibitions are booked monthly, longer exhibitions can be arranged. Our association with our artists continues after the exhibition is over, whereby if someone contacts the gallery inquiring about a past exhibition or artist, we co-ordinate communications and will set up a viewing in the gallery, at no charge to the artist, and with no commission. For all Exhibition booking inquiries, please contact Calvin Hambrook at 647.460-1278 or email
