Oeno Gallery is committed to ensuring a safe, inclusive and inviting experience for ALL visitors! We are proud to be an 2SLGBTQI+ friendly business that celebrates individuality and is a space for inspiration, connection, and discovery. We are queer owned and operated company that is dedicated to our vibrant and growing community. We offer a unique outdoor sculpture garden experience, in addition to our ever-changing indoor gallery exhibitions, that are free to the public. We strive to be accessible in our space - with wheelchair accessible entrance and bathroom - and in our approach to welcoming all clients.
We are proud sponsors of youth programs, having sponsored the County Clippers girls basketball team and County Dolphins, a program that helps subsidize cost and increase access to youth swimming lessons. In addition we sponsor an arts scholarship via the County Community Foundation and notably the Otto Rogers award for achievements in the arts. Most recently we assisted with raising funds for Save the Children in Ukraine, with a special exhibition of artist Noreen Taylor, who generously donated net proceeds of her art sales in aid of children made homeless in recent conflicts. We also have supported the Syrian PEC program, which helps Syrian refugee families re-locate to the area, and the upcoming fundraising Gala for the Picton library expansion.
We proudly sponsored the queer led cabaret festival 'We're Funny That Way' in their performance at Base31, featuring the talented work of comedians, musicians, and drag queens, all in celebration of 2SLGBTQI+ community. We are committed to hiring practices that reflect inclusion, and align to these practices through programs such as Career Edge, Inspire and Canada Summer Jobs.
