NEXT is a multi-venue Preview Exhibition of 2022’s Eastside Art Crawl. Pendulum Gallery is pleased to participate as one of the five cross-city locations for this salon-style curated exhibition, giving a downtown presence for this popular East Side open-studio event.

After the extraordinary challenges of the last couple of years, there is a longing for change or a return to normalcy across society, and this is especially true for artists who have been particularly impacted during the last two years of isolation from their peers and the public.

For this timely exhibit, Eastside Culture Crawl provides artists opportunities to reach for something different, an evolution of their approach to their art, or the progression of current practices with a reconsidered emphasis. It will explore the after-effects of living through a pandemic as we long for and ponder about what's NEXT.

More than 425 artists will open their doors and welcome tens of thousands of visitors for the 26th annual Eastside Culture Crawl Visual Arts, Design & Craft Festival, held November 17 to 20, 2022. The Culture Crawl is thrilled to welcome art lovers, Vancouverites, and tourists to rediscover its classic, in-person festival experience. For four incredible days, streets and studios on Vancouver’s Eastside will be filled with visitors taking in the best of the community’s arts scene. This year, arts patrons can explore more than 68 buildings and studios, and reconnect with new and returning artists through studio visits, gallery displays, and artist demonstrations and talks.
