Call for Exhibition Submissions
Smithers Art Gallery

Smithers, British Columbia
2012 Exhibitions

The Smithers Art Gallery is looking for submissions for art in all mediums, and we will also be taking submissions for several group shows this year:

First Nations Group Show: Next year we will be exhibiting a celebration of First Nations Talent! There are no restrictions on the medium, anything from photography to carving will be happily considered.

"Man Art": a group show showcasing the unexpected talents of men. This show is looking for participants who may not consider themselves traditional artists and are interested in exploring and expressing themselves artistically.

"Craft as Art”: a show that will be presenting the many talented artisans whose functional creations also convey artistic expression. This could include musical instruments, furniture, pottery, textiles, etc.

We will also be looking for submissions for "Christmas in the Gallery", a month-long gift show that will be presented in the Gallery for the holiday season.

The Smithers Art Gallery is a non-profit gallery which is operated by the Smithers Gallery Association. The mission of the Smithers Gallery Association is to foster the development, understanding and celebration of art in our community through the operation, development, and growth of an exhibition gallery, and cultural and educational centre for the visual arts.

The Smithers Art Gallery welcomes exhibition proposals from artists, curators, and community members. All curators or art directors must be current Gallery Members (memberships run May 1 to April 30). The Gallery is usually booked 12 months in advance, with exhibitions changing approximately every 4 weeks.

As a whole, the gallery can accommodate approximately 25-30 pieces of wall art, depending on size. There is a smaller section within the main gallery referred to as the “mini gallery”. This connected space can hold 5-10 wall pieces and may be suitable for those with smaller works or portfolios. See floor plan at the end of this application.
