Join us as we celebrating the closing of our summer season!

Union House Arts has been busy working away at our Garden this summer! To close out the end of our summer season we’re inviting our friends on the peninsula to join us for an evening of food, drinks, art, bonfires and games! Drop by to see what we’ve accomplished this summer, catch the last day of our current exhibition, and enjoy some drinks from Quidi Vidi Brewery and Port Rexton Brewery! We’ll even have some special events for kids! Continue reading to see what we have planned and to register!

Our Garden Space

In 2021 we started to build and landscape our backyard. Thanks to our Garden Assistant, we managed to build a fire pit, a garden bed, and a composting box! In 2022 we received infrastructure funding from Come Home Year to continue the improvement of our garden space. So far this year we have managed to install a new maker’s platform, a shed, lighting, and we plan to install a greenhouse, awning and more garden beds to hopefully have a functioning community garden for next year!

Huge thanks to Precision Landscaping, the Coaker Foundation and Come Home Year funding for helping us get our garden space up and running!

Exhibition Closing and Artist Talk

This event falls on the last day of our exhibition, RE: PLACE! To commemorate the closing of our summer exhibition season artist, Racquel Rowe, will be hosting an artist talk about her work. Racquel Rowe is an interdisciplinary artist currently residing in Waterloo, Ontario. Her practice is influenced histories within matrilineal family structure, diasporic communities, and her upbringing in Barbados. To find out more about Racquel and her work, visit www.racquelrowe.ca
