The Fitzroy Street Tiny Art Gallery is delighted to announce a partnership with Upstreet Craft Brewing for 2023. Two new tiny galleries will be installed at the Upstreet Taproom (41 Allen Street), and Craft Beer Corner (156 Great George St) in an expansion of the project.
In a series of exhibitions sponsored by Discover Charlottetown and curated by Monica Lacey, we will present 5 local artists between June and November. Artists will show their work in all three galleries, and also present Artist Talks & Walks, a series of free events funded by the City of Charlottetown through the Community Microgrant Program.
Jordan Beaulieu will begin the series with an exhibition of drawings on view from June 23-
July 18. I Have Not Wings (2023) is a hand-drawn poetry comic that expresses longing for different forms of earthly life.
All are welcome to join for Jordan’s Artist Talk & Walk on Monday, July 3rd beginning at 5pm at the Upstreet Taproom. The Talk & Walk will travel from Upstreet down the Confederation Trail to Fitzroy Street, and ending at Craft Beer Corner. Refreshments will be provided and there is no cost to attend.
