ARTspace was formed in 2008 as a community arts initiative by the Thames Art Gallery. It was created to meet the demands of the community for a common ground where artists and appreciators can gather to become educated, share their interests and exhibit in a space where artistic visions can be realized and supported.

ARTspace is a not for profit gallery dedicated to the promotion and development of emerging Chatham-Kent artists engaged in contemporary visual arts practice. The gallery maintains a special focus on exhibiting and promoting a diversity of artistic practices within the region of Chatham-Kent.

In addition to our goal of expanding artistic discourse through exhibition programming, a significant part of the galleries vision includes professional development and support. Artists are encouraged to access information and skills training offered through the gallery in the form of resources, workshops, crit sessions, volunteering opportunities and gallery openings.

Why Choose ARTspace?

ARTspace offers works in a variety of mediums, all by Chatham-Kent artists.  We have something for everyone!  We also offer monthly one day workshops for those who like to dabble in the arts or are looking to improve and pick up new skills for their own art practice.
