As one of Vancouver’s original artist live/work buildings, the ARC Gallery has shown professional visual and performance art exhibitions since 1995, including for events such as the East Side Culture Crawl, ARC Open Studio Events, and the residents’ annual Uncommon Show.
The ARC Gallery is a collaborative space where artist-residents are invited to exhibit their art of any discipline in a venue that reflects both emerging and established talent.
The ideal of nurturing and sharing knowledge is an underlying mission of the gallery’s shows and in our creative community. It is independent and self-sufficient in its operations.
Decisions are arrived at collectively. ARC innovates, creates, reinvents, and re-envisions our creative community with each new exhibition, creating a continually transforming combination of the individual visions of the artists residing in the building at that time. The gallery simultaneously tries to keep a continuum in the energy and memory of past resident artists and shows.
