Artist Submissions

Submission Guidelines

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie (AGGP) welcomes proposals from artists and curators in all media for exhibitions or special projects. The Gallery presents a diverse program of exhibitions, lectures and meetings with artists, and is involved in the production of curated exhibitions connected to themes developed by the gallery. Together, the programs propose a critical reflection on today’s art and culture.

Submissions to the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie should be submitted for the sole purpose of informing the curator of your work – submissions should not be directed toward a specific exhibition proposal.

The Gallery has seven exhibition spaces and provides professional technical services for the selected projects. The AGGP pays fees to artists and curators in accord with CARFAC/CARCC standards. Submissions are assessed and recommended for inclusion by the Curatorial Team, comprised of the Gallery’s Curators and Executive Director, who are guided in their assessment by the Gallery’s ‘Curatorial Mandate’.

Annual Deadline for Submissions: September 15th

Applications must be postmarked by this date to be considered for the coming programming year. Decisions are made within 4 months of the deadline date, and so often relate to subsequent years’ exhibition schedule. The exhibition schedule is often programmed roughly 2 years in advance. This enables the gallery to fulfill provincial and federal government funding requirements and provides adequate planning time to mount significant exhibitions that are supported through educational programs and public relations.

The Gallery will keep submissions on file for up to two years, if your submission is not accepted for that programming year we encourage you to apply again with different submission.
