Eastside Contemporary Art Gallery
We are a contemporary art gallery located in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. Our space is equipped with track lighting and is the perfect place to host an extended art show, shared studio space, photo shoot or a retail pop-up shop. We have a PA system, tables, chairs and also two clothing racks that may be used with the rental of this space. There is a back area attached to the front gallery space that is equipped with a bar table and two mini fridges. The approximate space of the back area is 160 ft².
Price includes 5% GST.
We have blocked off times where we have exhibitions up, however, if you are planning an event where you do not mind some artwork up, a meeting, cocktail party, meditation etc. Please let us know and we might be able to fit you in.
We are now offering optional bar service, with one of our staff available to run your bar for an additional hourly fee. We've provided this service to recent rentals who greatly appreciated the additional support and being able to more thoroughly enjoy their event without running their own bar sales.
This service is schedule dependent. Please inquire for details.
Minimum Booking: 1 day

We kindly ask that all rentals adhere to the "campsite rule" of leaving our space as you found it. This includes removing and disposing of all garbage, recycling, leftover food and drinks and supplies.
We appreciate a basic cleaning, sweeping and mopping supplies are available at the gallery.
We also firmly ask that all guests remain inside the designated gallery/bar space and not enter any of the artist's studios behind the gallery. These artists are our tenants and friends, and we expect the utmost respect for their space and belongings at all times.
Audie and Julia were quick to respond to all my inquiries and very helpful.
Friendly and a great team of people to communicate with. Flexible use of space and they also offered fridge space for our event! It's also really kind of them to lend their speakers even though one of them is not working. Regardless, I've seen lots of improvement since the first time we've used this space and it's becoming more cozy!
Booked the gallery to celebrate my 30th birthday - and it was a dream ! Perfect space to host 40-50 of my closest friends and family. Lovely to have the open white space in the front and bar in the back. Julia was easy to communicate with, and connected with us in advance to provide a tour of the space and all it has to offer. Had several guests comment on the space and how perfect it was for the party. Would definitely book again !
Everyone we worked with and met at the gallery was great. We would rent this venue again!
I had my 30th birthday at the Gam Gallery. The team was great and very accommodating. They walked me through the space and showed me where I could find anything I could possibly need. They have pretty much whatever you need to host a successful event. The space is as described and pictured.
Extremely great experience renting from Julia the rest of the team. They are super friendly and run everything very smoothly, all things were a breeze! Would love to host there again, and highly recommend!
We rented this space for our zine launch and it was the perfect atmosphere. The space is really clean, and was the perfect size for our first event. The hosts were really accommodating and made it super easy for us to set-up and tear down. Would definitely rent through them again. :)
This was a great space to hold an art fundraiser. There was tons of room and it was nice to have a fridge in the back to store extra food and drinks. There was also a sound system but the speakers are a bit big for the area so we just used a smaller boom box and it worked perfectly. Yes the area is not the best but we had no problems with people. One thing to note is that the bathroom area is not the cleanest but it is also not directly in the studio, you need to walk out the back door to get to it, but other then that the area was clean and ready to go. There are tons of tables, chairs, stands, etc which gives you lots of options for how you want to set up the space. Will definitely be renting again for future art events, birthdays, etc :)
The venue was cute and just the right size for our event. Communication was a little iffy when trying to make initial contact but eventually we were directed to get in touch with the gallery assistant who was very helpful with the key exchange. There were speakers, mini fridges and tables for our use at the venue. The bathroom is accessible but it is not modern or updated. Also, the garbage bins could not be found in the back alley. The location in East Hastings was a little sketch but we kept the front door locked and stayed in groups at the end of the night while waiting for cabs. As a result, we didn't run into any trouble. Overall, an amazing backdrop for our end of the year celebration (UBC Players Club).
Great experience. No drama, everything as expected. Hired Whitney to run the bar and she was a pleasure to work with. Julia was very easy to communicate with and flexible of my needs.
