IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK

MAY 1 - JULY 5
URBANSPACE GALLERY

In Spring 2014, we're celebrating 20 years in this marvellous heritage building. In honour of this occasion, we're sharing the stories, histories, and memories passed on from those who have walked these halls with us and before us. Over the years, we have collected articles and essays, personal accounts and treasured heirlooms, which together reveal a legacy of commerce, culture, and community at 401 Richmond.
