Happy Pride Week! From an artist-run centre

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

Eyelevel Gallery in Halifax, NS

Gallery Connexion in Fredericton, NB

Galerie Sans Nom, dans le Centre Culturel Aberdeen à Moncton, NB
