About Us

What is the kube?

A platform, both physical (studio gallery) and virtual (online), that provides a creative environment and supportive management for artists as arts entrepreneurs. the kube has different levels of participation for artists, depending on their needs. Our intention is to build a community for artists, from marketing to teaching to showcasing and space sharing. All marketing for the kube studios, the artists, and events will be done through our website and social media collaboration with other galleries and agencies.

Our Story

Located in Gibsons, B.C, The Kube features 11 artists in residence who have studio space, gain access to inspiring workshops and are supported by co-op marketing efforts through the business. Proudly owned and operated by Jill Pilon (also an artist herself) and Jody Youngren (a graphic designer).

The Kube’s art gallery and boutique retail space features art and hand-crafted artisan pieces from the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver, and throughout Canada. We pride ourselves on bringing in approximately 70% of our creative makers from Canada. We also carry high end quality pieces from abroad.

We host an art opening on the first Friday of every month with a featured artist. Currently we are unable to have public art openings but make sure to visit the store each month to view the latest show.
