ARTCYCLES – Gallery Representation & Artist Promotion

Are You an Artist Looking for a Gallery Exhibition?


Chali-Rosso Art Gallery, one of the premier galleries in Vancouver, is embarking on a PILOT program to help address a growing, unmet challenge in the Vancouver art scene. This might be just what YOU have been hoping for!

Chali-Rosso Art Gallery specializes in original graphic works by historic European and American artists. Over the past 15 years, thousands of locals and guests have visited our gallery on Howe Street. (formerly South Granville), browsed our Satellite Exhibitions at Oakridge Center and McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Center, or visited our exhibitions at Whistler Mountain Resort, UBC, Vancity Theatre, the Jewish Community Center, the Vancouver Club, the Arbutus Club or the Terminal City Club. You might be one of over a million people who have enjoyed the original, monumental, Salvador Dali sculptures we installed in public spaces around Vancouver for three years running. You also may have visited our exhibition in one of many cities in China. There is never a dull moment at Chali-Rosso!

Gallery Interior

Every day, local and international, contemporary artists walk into our Howe Street location, asking how they too can have their art exhibited in our gallery. Alas our focus has not included contemporary artists…until now.
