Conception of 161 Gallon Gallery

leave a comment »

161 Gallon Gallery is a white cube gallery, but not a “White Cube” gallery, initiated by three local artists: Dan Joyce, Miriam Moren, and Ryan Park. It is a diminutive space based in a residential home in Halifax, with a volume of 161 gallons. Our objective is to provide an intimate, alternative place outside of the institution where experimental, spontaneous art is possible and a location for the creative community of Halifax to support each other’s practices.

We are open by appointment.

For more information or for a good time, call 423.2706 or email 161gallongallery@gmail.com
