– To expose Fredericton and surrounding area to contemporary and experimental visual art practices, including performance, literary arts, musical arts, and interdisciplinary work.
– To make available to our region art from other areas of the country and abroad.
– To offer services and events to artists whose work might not otherwise find an appropriate venue in our region because they do not easily fit the mandate of the traditional and commercial galleries that exist here. Our programming ensures that marginalized groups, Aboriginal, and emerging artists are included in our selections annually.
