Administrative history

The Slade Gallery Artists Co-operative was founded on July 1, 1992 by Terry and Jennifer Reynoldson. Ron Bader approached Terry and Jennifer to fill vacant space in his office building at Slade Manor. They decided to create an artists’ co-operative and gallery at this location. The group met bi-monthly and produced a bi-monthly newsletter entitled ‘The Slade Gallery Artbeat’. Their main objective was to promote local art and emerging artists throughout the community. The organization was renamed the Bridge Artist Co-operative in 1995. The organization closed its gallery, Gallery 53, in the fall of 2001 and soon after disassembled.
