The Phoenix is an artist collective and underground gallery. We provide a collaborative environment for artists to make and sell art.
Location 45 West Hastings Basement, Alley Entrance Vancouver, BC
The Phoenix was founded by artists Lisa Warren, James Welk and Jolene Simpson. When they found themselves in need of a new studio space in April of 2015, they stumbled upon an ad for a large, commercial space. It was more than enough space for them, and they decided to take it with the intention of joining with other artists to start a new collective. The space was in poor repair, and needed to be renovated before it could be usable. Together, they worked around the clock to give the space a new face, and were ready to open their doors in June.

EDUCATE A CHILD UGANDA FUNDRAISER Oct 21 9th, 5-9 pm Fine art, ceramics, prints, photography and hand-made crafts from Uganda. All proceeds go toward the Educate a Child Uganda education project. AND HERE WE ARE - LES KINNEY Oct 26th, 7 - 9 pm Kinney''s work is about our perception and the beauty within natural form. It is an exploration of the point in our brain, where the subconscious influences observation and its portrayal. Les considers the vibrancy of colour and the stroke of the brush can be as important as the image itself. Over time, Kinney's style has evolved in what can best be described as "Surrealistic Impressionism".
