Art Gallery of St. Albert 2022 Exhibitions | Expression of Interest: Indigenous Artists, Artist Groups and Curators

The Art Gallery of St. Albert (AGSA), a contemporary, non-profit, public art gallery, encourages Indigenous artists, artist groups, and curators who are interested in exhibiting in our 2022 calendar year, to contact us with an Expression of Interest.

The Gallery considers that artists have a profound contribution to make in expressing both truth and reconciliation. As such at least one exhibition each year is dedicated to Indigenous artists and exhibitions that express Indigenous perspective and the theme of reconciliation.

Expressions of Interest should be sent to  exhibitions@artsandheritage.ca. Please include a short description of the exhibition or project, at least three images of the proposed artwork, and links to any applicable artist or project websites or social media pages. Additional and supplementary documentation will be accepted.

Within a few days of receiving an Expression of Interest, the Gallery will contact the artist to set up a phone call or virtual meeting. The meeting will give the Gallery and the Artist the opportunity to get to know one another, discuss the artist’s practice, and create an individualized plan for assembling a submission to present the Artist’s work to our selection jury in late March, 2021.  

Deadline to express interest is Friday March 12, 2021 at 5 pm.

The jury will be selecting artists to show in our three exhibition spaces in 2022. It takes months of planning and preparation to bring art exhibitions to life, so the Art Gallery of St. Albert selects exhibitions at least 1 to 1.5 years a head of time.  

The artists chosen to exhibit at the Gallery in 2022 will receive Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes Canadiens (CARFAC) exhibition fees.

For more information, please email exhibitions@artsandheritage.ca or call 780.460.4310.

Art Gallery of St. Albert (AGSA) is seeking submission from current members of the Big Lake Artists’ Studios, the St. Albert Photography Club and the Visual Arts Studio Association, working in any medium, to take part in the group exhibition Drawn Home.  This juried exhibit will take place August 5 to September 18, 2021 in the main exhibition space at the Art Gallery of St. Albert. 

This exhibition will showcase artists inspired by the idea of ‘Home.’  This broad theme is designed to invite a variety of responses from the participating artists. Home is more than a singular building. Home is memory, connection and belonging.

Artists are encouraged to submit up to 3 individual pieces. Submitted works can be in any media and are not restricted to works created in 2021. Wall hanging and sculptural works are all welcome. If your work is larger than 40×60”, please contact the gallery prior to submitting. 

 

To express your interest in participating please complete the attached application form. You will also need to provide up to 3 digital images of the works you wish to be considered. Artist duos or small groups are welcome to submit but must complete a single application for the group.
