NEXT: 2022 Exhibit

dots dots

Nov 01, 2022 - Nov 27, 2022


We are thrilled to be presenting the Preview Exhibitions once again, mounting a multi-venue, salon-style curated exhibition at the Cultch, Firehall, Alternative Creations, Pendulum Gallery, and new this year, Strange Fellows Gallery.

The theme of this year’s Crawl exhibitions is NEXT. After the extraordinary challenges of the last couple of years, there seems to be a longing for change or a sense of normalcy. For this exciting exhibit, Eastside Culture Crawl artists present opportunities to reach for something new, perhaps a fresh start, or maybe the progression of current practices. It will explore the aftereffects of living through a pandemic as we long for and ponder about what’s NEXT.

Works in this broad-reaching exhibition include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video and other media.

Dates vary depending on the venue.
