Our Vision

To build a rich, collaborative artistic community that enhances the social fabric of our community.

Our Mission

To promote, support and showcase local visual arts and artists in a representative and inclusive manner.

Our Objectives

- To operate and program sustainable and inclusive professional display spaces for local visual artists of all kinds within our community
- To support all levels of artists, from emerging to mid-career to established
- To offer year-round permanent contact point(s) for the public to view and purchase local art
- To provide educational artistic programming for the general public and for artists
- To raise funds for the furtherance of the objectives of the organization

The Collective has established an elevated, multi-discipline visual arts gallery–operated by its dedicated members of the Route 22 Artist Collective Ltd. Behind the gallery display space is an Arts Makerspace intended to provide arts programming for all ages.  The Route 22 Artist Collective Ltd. Gallery is located at Unit 18, 312 5th Ave (Grand Central Town Square Mall) in Cochrane.

The arts play a huge role in building healthy communities and maintaining mental wellness. The Covid-19 crisis has brought this to the forefront and further illuminated the importance of art in helping people cope in the current difficult times. The arts connect, nourish and sustain us on a fundamental human level.

Now more than ever, it is important to support the growth and health of our local arts scene.  We could not be more proud of our grassroots  Collective and the Route 22 Artist Collective Ltd. Gallery. We sincerely hope you will join us on our journey.

As part of our new re-opening, we are seeking supporters of all kinds to join in making this venture a successful and sustainable reality for Cochrane.
