Here in Fredericton, it’s pride week! Yesterday I went to see Stonewall Uprising at Gallery Connexion, an artist-run centre.
God I love artist-run centres, they make so many wonderful things possible. Do you know about artist-run centres? From what I can tell, they are a very Canadian thing.
Wikipedia on artist-run centres
ARCA, a Canadian organization that represents approximately 170 artist-run centres and collectives in cities and towns across the country.
Some local favorites:
Struts Gallery in Sackville, NB
