2a. Mission Statement: 
The mandate of Zekes Gallery is to provide emerging artists with a venue to have their first solo show. Just as Zeke’s Gallery offers artists a point of entry into the “art world” for the unknown and un-shown, it offers the public a similar point of entry into the closed environment of the white cube gallery by making art more accessible. Besides art exhibitions the Gallery also schedules bands, poetry readings, theater, and other events that draw people into Zeke’s community, exposing them to a broad range of cultural products and an environment where their opinion is welcome. Zeke’s Gallery uncompromisingly supports new artists, local artists, new art, and local art – and helps create a public to appreciate their work.
2b. Organization History / Organizational Overview. Index of important events in organization's history.: 
Zeke’s Gallery was established in 1998 by Chris Hand almost by accident. Chris was using a large open space on St-Laurent Blvd in Montreal for his record distribution business, Zeke’s Distribution, and one day began talking about having his friend, local artist Bertrand Lavoie, to show his work in the space. Eventually Lavoie agreed, other artists followed and Zeke’s Gallery was born. Seeing the opportunity the Gallery presented, Chris wound down operations for Zeke’s Distribution and focused his energy full time (and then some) on the Gallery. The Gallery was incorporated on June 28, 2001 as a non-profit organization. Since 1998 Zeke’s Gallery has: · Presented 46 successful “First Solo” Exhibitions; · Hosted 300+ successful one-night events 199 of which have been recorded as “Instant CDs”; · Been featured in “Canadian Art,” “Vie des arts” and received numerous other reviews, and articles in national news media including Macleans, the Globe & Mail, National Post, and others. · Been voted “Best Art Gallery” by Montrealplus.ca and the Montreal Mirror for the past four years. · Developed a database of 15,000+ media, artists and cultural enthusiasts. Chris, also known as Zeke, had no formal training in art prior to starting Zeke’s Gallery. Driven by an interest in visual art, a sense that the traditional art world was largely closed to many emerging artists and inaccessible to the public, and a tenacious personality Chris ploughed ahead ignoring the established ways things have been done in the art community. His attitude that if you like a piece of art then it’s good, makes him something of a maverick. He is seen by the Montreal Art establishment as a threat for his egalitarian, almost anarchistic, approach to art. Zeke’s Gallery is positioned as a “perpendicular” gallery, in contrast to the parallel gallery system and designed to be completely distinct from other gallery spaces. The mandate for Zeke’s Gallery became clear: to provide emerging artists with a venue to have a first solo show. Just as Zeke’s Gallery offers artists a point of entry into the “art world” for the unknown and un-shown, it offers the public a similar point of entry into the closed environment of the white cube gallery by making art more accessible. Besides art exhibitions the Gallery also schedules bands, poetry readings, theater, and other events that draw people into Zeke’s community, exposing them to a broad range of cultural products and an environment where their opinion is welcome. Zeke’s Gallery uncompromisingly supports new artists, local artists, new art, and local art – and helps create a public to appreciate their work. The Gallery itself is neither intimidating nor pretentious. It is the anti-gallery, or as Canadian Art magazine put it “an anti-institution institution.” The 1,200-square-foot space, three-room space does not have the white walls, classical music or snobby and pretentious staff expected in art galleries. There are green walls, house plants, well-worn sofas and tables scattered throughout the space. There is a cluttered visible work space at one end of the main room adjacent to a beer fridge and coffee machine... In order to emphasize the differences from “traditional” galleries, the first thing most people see is Zeke, offering them a beer or a cup of coffee and a place to hang out and chat about the art on the walls, the band or poet that played the gallery the previous night, or life in general.
