50/50 Arts Collective

Deadline: Ongoing/Unspecified

50/50 Arts Collective

Victoria, BC
Exhibition Proposals

Artists are welcome to propose events and/or exhibitions through our email or snail mail addresses. In order to obtain approval for a given event, all proposals will be discussed by the collective's board members. Please note all exhbitions require a host/facilitator from the volunteer pool of fifty fifty members.

We are presently accepting applications for gallery shows. To apply, you must submit a small portfolio consisting of 5 or more samples of your work and an artist statement which should ideally provide a context for this show. This statement could accompany your exhibition if desired. Gallery floor plan is available on the website.

You can email jpegs of your work to or supply us with a web page featuring your works. Additionally, one can email us to arrange to drop off either photos or slides to the gallery (please note that we are not open regular hours every week).

Art Shows generally run for the course of 10 days over 2 weekends. Gallery shows can be combined with a store front installation depending on availability of this space.

The gallery space is provided at little expense to the artist. We ask that a $50.00 deposit be left with the collective until the gallery has been cleared and left in adequate condition. A suggested 30 percent donation of sales is recommended but not enforced. If you have any questions or proposals drop us an email.

Complete guidelines available on the website: guidelines

The fifty fifty is a non-profit artist run society organized and operated by a small group of volunteer members that work to promote the independent art scene throughout the victoria area. The fifty fifty aims to provide exhibition space at little to no cost from the artist. The fifty fifty board is not bound by aesthetic divisions, and have little time for elitist judgment or genre restrictions yet do seek unique exhibits and programs that can not find an appropriate home elsewhere in victoria.

We cater to a diverse group of folks working in victoria's burgeoning arts scene: artists and folks working in genres not yet defined by the mainstream.
