Eastern Edge, created in 1984, was the first artist-run centre for visual arts in Newfoundland Labrador. We remain committed to exhibiting contemporary Canadian and international art, as well as encouraging dedicated, rigorous activity locally.
In providing an alternative venue where artists have greater control over how their work is represented, Eastern Edge facilitates critical dialogue concerning issues in contemporary art and society, actively encouraging artists whose work speaks to socially and politically diverse perspectives. Eastern Edge is a supportive space to develop skills, share information and resources, fostering community and a meaningful context for artistic activity.
A cycle of six exhibitions are programmed in the main gallery each year, with an annual submission deadline of March 31st. In addition to this, Eastern Edge offers many other opportunities for a broad range of artistic expression. The Rogue Gallery is a non-juried space dedicated to exhibiting local artists’ work, and the Pin-In Gallery displays button art projects. The annual Art Marathon Festival offers possibilities ranging from interactive installations and performances to workshops and music. The gallery’s board of directors are fully committed to the highest standards of professional treatment of artists in all aspects of the centre’s activities.
