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 or film shoot, meeting space or meditation/yoga studio. We have tables and chairs and exhibition plinths included in your rental. 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 while the main gallery space is about 350 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, meditation etc. Please let us know and we might be able to fit you in.
This is also a shared space with artist studios in the back, which need to be walked through to get to the washroom. These studio spaces are completely off limits, meaning you are unable to use these spaces for any reason during your event.

Everything about this space is great.
The space was perfect to hold our casting call, parking nearby in a safe parkade! bright space with white walls, great to set up a show or do a shoot in
Michael was predominantly the one who assisted me with my booking and he was more than gracious. His responses were always prompt, clear and in good spirit. The space was well liked by all my guests. It's a nice blank slate with great potential for adding your own personal flare. Would happily rent again.
Everything about my recent event at the gallery went great! Julia easy to get in contact with, the rental cost + available hours worked for us, and the space even felt a bit bigger than it looks in the photos. The only **very slight** inconvenience was that the wifi router must have been located somewhere near the back of the gallery because our wifi speaker near the front of the gallery was cutting in and out at times. I would definitely recommend this space!
Absolutely loved having our wedding here. What a fantastic space to have any event, plus Nancy and Julia are so accommodating and easy to talk to the whole planning process was so easy. Thanks again!
This was a great space for our dance party. Julia and her team were easy to communicate and very easy going.
I had a small party in this gallery. Great space, very accommodating and helpful. My guests enjoyed the space as well :)
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 !
