Leslie Grove Gallery – Where Artists Flourish.

The Artists’ Network is pleased to be settled into its new permanent home at 1158 Queen Street East, previously known as Leslie Grove Field House.  Located on the corner of Jones and Queen Street East, in Leslie Grove Park, we are thrilled to be able to provide exhibition space within the Leslieville and Riverside communities and are looking forward to expanding into mentoring opportunities and community events. 

Our Mandate:

To empower artists through education and a range of diverse and inclusive exhibition opportunities. Leslie Grove Gallery is committed to amplifying the voices within creative communities that may otherwise go unheard. 

Leslie Grove Gallery (formerly the Artists’ Network Gallery) is the latest initiative of the Artists’ Network offering accesible space for artists’ to exhibit their work by participating in group shows or private gallery rental. It is home to the Artists’ Network administrative office where we often host education seminars, committee and board meetings, and plan Riverdale ArtWalk and ArtWalk in the Square,

The gallery is operated by the gallery committee (consisting entirely of volunteer members of the Artists’ Network) with assistance from our office manager and weekend staff.

Land Acknowledgment

Artists’ Network and the Leslie Grove Gallery acknowledge the traditional territories of the Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat peoples. These territories are the enduring home to many First Nation, Metis and Inuit peoples from across Turtle Island. We also acknowledge that we are hosted on land covered by Treaty 13 held by the Mississaugas of the Credit. Tkaronto (Toronto) is subject to The Dish With One Spoon covenant, which bound the Anishinabek, Mississaugas, and Haudenosaunee peoples to peacefully share and protect the lands of the Great Lakes. In the spirit of this covenant, we are grateful to be able to meet, create, and grow together in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect on this Ancestral land.
