  • Very small, very minimalistic, very hipster-y. I liked it though. Was a very short visit but it was free to enter so that is okay. Nice and quiet place, very peaceful end to a busy day.  more »

  • Misleading information on which artists are showing... seems they advertise but then the artists show is cancelled or changed without communication.
  • A very small gallery with great curation and interesting pieces. They don't charge for entry but a donation is suggested. Worth a quick visit if you're close by.
  • Small gallery, a place to quickly walk around if you don't have much time
  • If you spend more than 10 minutes here you are doing well.
  • Very nice small contemporary public gallery in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Free to the public
