Cube GalleryEdit

Cube Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that hosts a new group show every month. Centrally located in the heart of west-end Ottawa, Cube is just behind the bustling Parkdale Market and a short stroll from the GCTC and some of Ottawa's greatest new restaurants on Holland and Wellington Streets.

The brainchild of Ottawa artist and curator Don Monet, the location of Cube Gallery also has historical significance. It is located on the site of where the Stubby Soda Pop factory used to be. Now a forgotten ghost of the soda pop world, Stubby 's specialty was grapefruit soda. During the first war, the warehouse style building housed a barracks for Canadian Troops. In the 50's it was the site of the cold-war/rocket and jet plane research establishment Sperry Gyroscope." The gallery itself boasts 2000 square feet of space with 12 foot ceilings made of laminated B.C. red cedar, the walls are painted a warm archival white...making the space warm and inviting. "This is the kind of gallery that gives you room to really stand back and look at the art," says Monet. "It also allows Cube the flexibility to showcase substantial works of art - everything from 10 ft. sculptures to 20 ft. wall based paintings.

Cube is more than a gallery. It is host to a number of cultural events from award winning plays and live dance performance to Jazz and piano concerts. A great place for a party, it also hosts private and public lectures, launches and receptions. We have played host to a number of weddings, poetry and book launches, as well as private dinner parties. A dynamic and welcoming art space that changes every month. The Cube is baby carriage and wheelchair friendly.

Gallery 101 Edit

Located in Ottawa, Ontario, Gallery 101 is a non-profit artist-run centre with charitable status dedicated to the professional presentation and circulation of visual and media arts. Each year, we present a stimulating array of solo and group exhibitions of Canadian and international contemporary artists working in all mediums. We also offer services and professional development opportunities to artists, curators, writers and critics. Commitment to artists and their work is our first priority.

In 1979, a small group of energetic Ottawa artists pooled their resources to establish a new non-profit gallery in which they would have control over the production and presentation of their own work. Officially incorporated as the Artists’ Centre d’Artistes, it was located at 101, Fourth Avenue. During the 1980’s, Gallery 101 also organized performances, poetry readings, and music events alongside its regular exhibition programming. Media arts - including sound art, video, and experimental cinema - became an important part of our programming in the 1990’s. Today, Gallery 101 continues its commitment to the visual arts in every form through its exhibitions, published monographs and catalogs. Furthermore, it has established international networks through the presentation of work by international artists and exhibitions of Canadian artists’ work abroad. Within the past two years, Gallery 101 has developed a reputation for its aboriginal and culturally diverse programming, with emphasis on presenting the diversity within aboriginal and Inuit artistic voices. Moreover, our presentation of artists from multicultural and Franco-Ontarian identities has raised our public image as an accessible and inclusive contemporary art space.
