The Vault Gallery
I visited Charlie and Sarah Johnston and their new Vault Gallery last Friday at 2181 Portage Ave. A great location - bright and spacious, and with parking space! A great space for art. They are still looking for groups of artists/craftspeople who are looking for a venue to have a show. They are more than willing to negotiate, and are open to proposals. The space includes vaults that would be great to display jewellery (Shades of MCC on Academy Rd.) They are still short of 3D display, but are interested in ideas.
Above are some photos of their space.
Glass in a new venue
And I also visited Robert's salon at 101-912 Portage Ave. Robert McGhie is happy to show the work of local artists in his hair dressing salon. At this time Yolanta and Zbigniew Sokalski are showing their glass work there. The photos here can give one an idea of the display potential.
