Spacious Contemporary Art Gallery


The gallery is centrally located in downtown Vancouver. Our facility comprises of three gallery spaces and a lobby reception area, allowing for dynamic multi-purpose events.

We offer rentals for fundraisers, networking events, receptions and workshops. We also have a private, separated office with board-room with a capacity of 12, that can be used for storage, set up and office administration. We make our facilities available for rental to generate revenue to support our free visual arts programming of exhibitions, residencies and education work, plus general operations.

Please Note - the Contemporary Art Gallery does not permit the display of artwork created or curated outside of CAG. Gallery exhibitions are expected to remain installed (minor adjustments can be accommodated) during your event.
