In Spring 2020, SNAP moves into its forever home – an expanded 6,000 sq. foot space on 115th Street and 105th Avenue in the Queen Mary Park neighbourhood of Edmonton. Real estate developer Gather Co. has graciously offered SNAP a 20-year lease with fixed rates, securing a home for Alberta print artists now and in the future.
The new facility will bring SNAP Gallery and Printshop under one roof, increase our exhibition and programming space, introduce multi-use spaces including a classroom and meeting room, and grow our capacity for artists’ studios. In so many ways, the new location will allow SNAP to serve more print artists, the art curious and art lovers for decades to come.
We need your support. Renovations are now well underway, turning two empty commercial bays into the well-built space we’re envisioning. In total, renovations and moving costs will be $300K dollars. We’re calling on our supporters to help us raise 1/3 of the costs.
Our campaign is off to a great start. The next milestone is $25K by the end of November. This will allow us to build out walls for our artists’ studios. Help us bring this vision to life with a donation and by sharing the campaign.
Since 1982, SNAP has provided a home for print artists in Alberta and beyond to exhibit their work, develop their practice, and share in the art of printmaking. SNAP has become a significant community builder in Edmonton, a place for people to connect, teach, learn, and grow. The new facility will allow SNAP to better serve artists and arts patrons, offering a larger and better-designed space.
