SB Contemporary Art is a new commercial gallery space that will showcase contemporary Canadian, established, mid-career and emerging artists. The gallery will have a focus on local artists’ work, but it will also highlight both national and international artists.  The gallery will present a variety of work, painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, and installation by professional artists in different stages of their artistic careers in Canada. All of these artists live and practice in the Windsor area!!

The gallery’s inaugural exhibition titled Make your Mark runs from April 9 until May 7, 2011. This exhibition brings together the work of renowned and local artists; IAIN BAXTER&, Louise Chance Baxter, Susan Gold, Lucy Howe, Zeke Moores, Victor Romao, Jose Seoane, and Sanja Srdanov.

The Gallery will be open Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00 until 6:00 pm.  For more information visit their website.
