[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he GAM Gallery in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside is a labour of love gone right. Five years ago, four young friends had an idea to create a new kind of art space.
Between the four, Jasmine Colette, Tarah Hogue, Julia Kreutz and Jamie Reid, they had no business experience and very little money.
What they had was a vision. They started out as a multimedia space hosting events to pay the bills. Today it is run by two of the founders, Hogue and Kreutz, and it is all about the visual art.
Hogue, a recent UBC graduate, says the gallery now wants to expand further into the Vancouver art scene.
