Art Gallery of St. Albert, a contemporary public art gallery, is seeking submissions from artists, artist groups, or curators of all artistic and cultural backgrounds working in all styles and mediums for exhibition in the 2022 calendar year.

Call for Expression of Interest: Indigenous Artists, Artist Groups and Curators

The Art Gallery of St. Albert, a contemporary, non-profit, public art gallery (part of the Arts and Heritage Foundation of St. Albert), encourages First Nations, Métis and Inuit artists, artist groups and curators who are interested in exhibiting in our 2023 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/or the theme of reconciliation.

Expressions of Interest should be sent to exhibitions@artsandheritage.ca. Please include a short description of the exhibition, artworks, 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, which will be hosted in late March, 2022.

The jury will be selecting artists to show in our three exhibition spaces in 2023. 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.

Deadline to express interest is Wednesday February 16 at 5 pm.

The artists chosen to exhibit at the Gallery in 2023 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.
