Trench contemporary art opened its doors in October of 2010 and operated successfully until July of 2014. During that time it exhibited a wide range of artists from emerging artists and mid career artists to proudly reintroducing senior artists who's work hadn't been seen in years. These artists included such greats as Ron Stonier, Glenn Lewis, David Mayrs, Roy Kiyooka, David Marshall and Amy Mukai. Many younger emerging artists got opportunities to show in our mad mad mad group show MONOMANIA and others such as Essential Analog. It was an amazing four years. But due to health issues it was time to move on, recalibrate and head back to the studio myself. Trench now will focus for the near future on the two senior artists that helped make it all happen, David Marshall and Ron Stonier. These two artists will be featured in pop up projects and exhibitions in the coming months and year. Please stay tuned for as we gear up for his own personal website telling the story of Vancouver's Last Modernist Painter. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email us at we are happy to answer any questions you might have.

Thank you again to all our supporters and patrons who helped make Trench as it was possible.
