Introducing Central Frederick’s newest Art Gallery.

Our Unconventional Art Gallery


Located on the exterior of what was once The Atlantic Variety Store at the corner of Samuel and Brubacher Streets. This installation hopes to bring beauty to an empty space. It will consist of the artwork of 7 local painters, who will be challenged to work with the limited palette of the buildings’ existing 5 exterior colours.

Where: The old Atlantic Variety Store

What: Artwork installed onto the second floor windows facing Samuel and Brubacher Streets.

Who: Central Frederick Neighbourhood Artists.

How: Neighbourhood artists were given a pre sized piece of wood, and a palette of five colours, pulled from the same colours of the existing exterior, to create their own (family friendly) art.

#Our Art Gallery is a fun project initiated by neighbours who have volunteered their time to coordinate, create and, maintain it.  

We hope you enjoy it!

The Atlantic's biggest financial sponsor is the Central Frederick Neighbourhood Association. They run a program called Mini-Grants, for residents of the neighbourhood to access funds for an idea that benefits everyone where we live.
