About the gallery: Queen Gallery presents the work of contemporary artists from Toronto and around the world. A recent addition to the Queen East community, our exhibitions are driven by a comparative exploration of art and culture in an interdisciplinary setting. Housed in a refurbished brownstone, this distinctive space is a forum where the boundaries of media are greeted, embraced and even challenged. We look to showcase a variety of talent of diverse heritage, aiming to provide the most original, contemporary voices to our collection. You are invited to apply to our gallery roster to grow with us as we navigate contemporary art from a novel perspective. Come visit us!
