The Malaspina Exhibition Centre (MEC) is located at Vancouver Island University (VIU), exhibiting the work of local and visiting artists free of charge. The Malaspina Art Society hopes to include an educational component in each exhibition.
The MEC is open weekdays while the university is open, and sometimes on weekends. Admission is free of charge.
Artists hoping to have a show should try to visit and spend some time in the space. MAS has access to some tools, and metal grids to help hold smaller works up along the wooden hanging bars (absolutely no holes are allowed in the walls apart from the wooden slats along the wall).
