About Us

New Romance #2 by Grant Leier

Gallery Merrick is a celebration of all things beautiful. We opened our doors in 2018 and have been filling homes and hearts with joy ever since! 

A space for both emerging and established artists, Gallery Merrick aims to provide a platform for artists to flourish and for collectors to expand their collections. 

Our Artists

Gallery Merrick is committed to representing a diverse range of living Canadian artists: working artists who make their livings and support their families with their art. Many of our artists are local to Vancouver Island and the surrounding Islands, but we also feature talent from across the country. 

We review artist submission every January, and welcome emerging and established artists to review our submission guidelines and apply at that time. 

About Joe

If you've had the opportunity to visit the gallery in person, you've probably met our curator and the face of Gallery Merrick: Joe Bembridge. Joe is a theatrically-trained performer who has extensive gallery experience and specializes in building relationships with both artists and collectors. Joe believes art should be fun, attainable and unique.

Private Viewings

We are happy to arrange private viewings in the gallery. Owner & curator Joe can provide a guided tour and behind-the-scenes look at each artist or body of work. If there are pieces you are interested in viewing in person, please contact us to inquire about availability for private viewings.
