The Fitzroy Street Tiny Art Gallery has partnered with Upstreet Craft Brewing for 2023 to bring two new tiny art galleries to Charlottetown. The new galleries will be installed at Upstreet’s Taproom and Craft Beer Corner. 

In a series of exhibitions curated by Monica Lacey, five local artists will exhibit between June and November. Artists will show their work in all three galleries and present Artist Talks & Walks, a series of free events. 

PEI visual artist Jordan Beaulieu will begin the series with an exhibition of drawings on view from June 23–July 18. I Have Not Wings (2023) is a hand-drawn poetry comic that expresses longing for different forms of earthly life. All are welcome to join Jordan for the Artist Talk & Walk at the Upstreet Taproom on July 3 at 5 pm. The Talk & Walk will travel from Upstreet down the Confederation Trail to Fitzroy Street, and ending at Craft Beer Corner. Refreshments will be provided and there is no cost to attend. 

Jordan Beaulieu is a coordinator, book designer and visual artist exploring poetry, rural living, comics and other pop media. They are a co-chair of this town is small, PEI’s artist-run centre, and co-founded the Charlottetown Zine Fest (CZF) in 2022.
