The gallery is in an old home which is just above the red shed on the right of the photo. Catherine Beaudette, an artists who has a place up the road from mine, was the mastermind and elbow grease behind this fantastic addition to the area. The inaugural exhibition took place in July.

2 Room Contemporary Art ProjectsTemporary on-site installation projects, exhibitions and events, and an on-going museum of material culture in Duntara on the Bonavista Peninsula. Curated exhibitions of contemporary art are on the first floor. A continuing series of experimental museological displays featuring collections of local artifacts and natural specimens are on the second floor. The program reflects the historical, natural and cultural conditions that exist interdependently in Newfoundland's outports.
