Who We Are
The Pendulum Gallery was created under the City of Vancouver's amenity bonus program as a legacy to enhance the experience of living and working in the downtown core. Opened in 1986, the light infused seven story soaring glass-covered atrium hall is a dramatic setting for art exhibitions. The atrium also offers the Cafe Ami, a popular eating-place with a relaxed seating area.
The primary mandate of the gallery is twofold:
1. To provide an alternative public exhibition venue in the city for artists and arts groups who would like to exhibit in a highly visible but non-traditional gallery environment.
2. To provide an exiting and varied exhibition program that appeals to both casual visitors to the building and a dedicated gallery going public.
Although a core schedule of exhibitions is programmed a year in advance, some scheduling changes do occur, providing an on-going opportunity to submit a request for an exhibition throughout the current year.
