Propeller operates through various sources of revenue including membership fees, gallery rentals, donations, sponsorships and fundraising. We do not receive public operating funding, all revenues are allocated towards operating and administrative costs. Set in the heart of “West Queen West” Toronto in Artscape’s Triangle Lofts Building.
Propeller Art Gallery is the last remaining artist-run gallery in the Queen Street West Art + Design District. Since 1996, it has thrived as an independently funded space: innovative and self-sustainable.
As one of the earliest galleries to lay its roots in the burgeoning Gallery District, Propeller is excited to continue to expand its innovative programming as it remains an integral part of the neighbourhood art scene over twenty-five years after its inception.
