RPM: The Lost Art of LP CoversA Fundraising Show & Sale - 20th Anniversary EditionOpening Friday, June 22, 7pm (Special Artists Preview 6:30pm)
Remember the LP cover? Two square feet of eye-popping, groin-stirring, world-rocking graphics, titles and liner notes rolled into one precisely measured object of desire? Well, the infamous RPM fundraising exhibition is back for a special 20th Anniversary Edition.

Here's the deal: Deluge Contemporary Art wants you to make and donate a record. Not the music, (unless it's part of your concept) just the cover. Here's your opportunity to honour a disappearing medium and help a worthy cause. To see your name on the charts. To show the world that fabulous concept you've been saving for when you finally make it big as a famous rock star, DJ, lounge crooner or polka king.

Long a local and national bastion of the forward-thinking contemporary art scene (and home to the internationally acclaimed Antimatter Film Festival). Deluge Contemporary Art -- formerly Rogue Art -- has produced over 200 exhibitions and shown over 2,500 local, national and international artists to an audience of more than 300,000 since its inception in 1991, cementing its role as an inestimable asset and ongoing resource to the arts community at large. Over the years, hundreds of artists, including music and art-world luminaries and emerging artists alike, have participated in this unique fundraising exhibition.

Over the past three years, we have seen a significant reduction to our operating budget as a result of provincial funding cuts. We need your help to continue to deliver quality visual and media arts programming to the local and international arts community, and we hope you'll join us to celebrate 20 years and a renewed lease in our spectacular downtown space.

Feel free to contact the gallery with any questions: or 250 385 3327.
