Griffin Art Projects is an art gallery in North Vancouver established to make the visual arts publicly accessible and to contribute to North Vancouver's cultural landscape. Founded by Brigitte and Henning Freybe, who began collecting art in the early 1970s, Griffin Art Projects presents curated exhibitions of contemporary art from private collections, free to the public. Through scholarly exhibitions, events, and publications, the Griffin builds on the strength of contemporary collecting in our region, the importance of historical preservation, and the desire to share these artworks with a broader public. To do this, we work with established cultural producers, artists and art educators in the region.

Through our annual Residency Program, Griffin Art Projects supports international exchange and the development of artistic and curatorial practices, hosting visiting artists and cultural producers from the region and the world. Participants receive studio space and an apartment, introductions to cultural producers and the community, and a connection to audiences through scheduled visits and public presentations.

The gallery is open to the public on Saturdays, 12:00 – 5:00 pm, and by appointment.

Please note, Griffin Art Projects will be closed Saturday, October 6th, for the holidays.
