Leslie Grove Gallery – Where Artists Flourish.
The Artists’ Network is pleased to be settled into its new permanent home at 1158 Queen Street East, previously known as Leslie Grove Field House. Located on the corner of Jones and Queen Street East, in Leslie Grove Park, we are thrilled to be able to provide exhibition space within the Leslieville and Riverside communities and are looking forward to expanding into mentoring opportunities and community events.
To empower artists through education and a range of diverse and inclusive exhibition opportunities. Leslie Grove Gallery is committed to amplifying the voices within creative communities that may otherwise go unheard.
Leslie Grove Gallery (formerly the Artists’ Network Gallery) is the latest initiative of the Artists’ Network offering accesible space for artists’ to exhibit their work by participating in group shows or private gallery rental. It is home to the Artists’ Network administrative office where we often host education seminars, committee and board meetings, and plan Riverdale ArtWalk and ArtWalk in the Square,
The gallery is operated by the gallery committee (consisting entirely of volunteer members of the Artists’ Network) with assistance from our office manager and weekend staff.
Exhibit with us!
The Leslie Grove Gallery is proud to exhibit work from both members and non-members in all stages of their careers. We are commited to providing inclusive programming that allows for all members of our diverse creative community to share their respective voices.
While we strongly encourage the submission of art in across all 2D and 3D mediums, in the case of sculpture and audio/visual, artists may be expected to provide their own plinths and/or equipment.
We encourage all of our member artists to submit to solo and/or group exhibitions, as a member you will always receive prefered rates. We welcome submissions from non-member artists, and we encourage you to consider the ongoing benefits of membership.

Artists’ Network and the Leslie Grove Gallery acknowledge the traditional territories of the Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat peoples that is now home to many diverse First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples. We also acknowledge that we are hosted on land covered by Treaty 13 held by the Mississaugas of the Credit. Tkaronto (Toronto) is the enduring home of many indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island. It is subject to The Dish With One Spoon covenant, which bound the Anishinabek, Mississaugas, and Haudenosaunee peoples to peacefully share and protect the lands of the Great Lakes. In the spirit of this covenant, we are grateful to be able to meet, create, and grow together in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect on this Ancestral land.
