The Peake Street Collective was established in 2005 when ten Island artists began regularly exhibiting new works in a former garage space attached to a private home in Charlottetown.The grass roots collective’s current 163 artist members are diverse in terms of experience. While the majority are established and emerging artists, the group also recognizes the importance of fostering the growth of pre-emerging, first-time exhibitors. To this end, Peake Street shows are not juried and artists automatically become members when they participate in group exhibitions or artist challenges.
Peake Street began operating under the umbrella of this town is small in 2013 following a number of successful joint exhibitions. This additional help has allowed Peake Street to expand its mandate to include application support for emerging and pre-emerging members interested in making application for this town is small’s various calls for submissions. If you have an exhibition idea and would like assistance, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to the collective on Facebook.
