Exhibition September 13th – October 26th, 2019

Join the procession with exhibiting artists and Carnegie Centre’s Artists-in-Residence, Amal Rana and Erv Newcombe. Meet outside Carnegie Centre, 401 Main St.

From September 13 to October 26, 2019, Oppenheimer Park and Gallery Gachet are pleased to present The World As We Create It. Exploring the theme of humans and the natural world, the exhibition showcases artwork from the Oppenheimer Park community, including paintings, drawings, print, sculpture, mosaic and mixed media works.

Oppenheimer Park has a rich and colourful history as a place of recreation, celebration, activism, resistance, culture, healing, community and belonging. It is also one of few green spaces in the Downtown Eastside and one of the oldest surviving parks in the city. This year’s exhibition reflects on our interactions with history, nature, place and space and how these narratives inform our worlds as we create them today. Thirty artists’ diverse and nuanced interpretations will be featured in the show.

Several artworks will be available for sale. Proceeds from all sales will directly benefit the artists.

Meet The Artist Tour | Thursday, October 3, 6pm-8pm 

A casual evening of art and conversation at Gallery Gachet, 9 W Hastings


The Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show began in 2008 in anticipation of the changes, challenges and loss in a pre-Olympic city. It presented an opportunity to recognize the existing neighbourhood and its residents who play important roles in creating community by drawing on their history despite challenges and struggles. Oppenheimer Park is often referred to as the “backyard” of the Downtown Eastside and is also one of the few inclusive spaces left for people who are homeless or living without adequate and safe housing. The Park hosts many programs, festivals and special events, celebrating the leadership of a resolute community who uphold a vision of the Park as a place for art, education, recreation, health, community and healing.

Oppenheimer Park is situated on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.

Oppenheimer Park would like to give a special thanks to our funders, sponsors and partners.
