Re: UNION - 25th Anniversary Exhibition

In the main gallery and the project room spaces, we present works by artists who have been affiliated with the gallery in some capacity since its humble beginnings in 1994. This immpressive collection of work in all media features the work of local artists, Queen’s Fine Art alumni and faculty artists from across the country and is a testament to the accomplished work being produced by artists from the Queen’s and the Kingston communities and beyond.

In the Vitrine Project space, outside the gallery doors, we feature a selection of the gallery’s off-site public art projects, performance art events and mentorship programs that have taken place at the gallery since 1994. The gallery extends thanks to all of the participating artists and to the volunteers Tessa Wilson, Quinn Venable, Julia Fast-Grass and Jennifer Kennedy who helped gallery staff organize the exhibitions and upcoming event.

The gallery also thanks the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund at Queen’s University for their generous support of this exhibition.
