FORT GALLERY | Call for Artists | Deadline June 30, 2022

Open Call for Submissions
Fort Gallery September 2022- December 2023 Programming

Fort Gallery is a non-profit, artist-run center situated on the banks of the Fraser River, in the historic town of Fort Langley, on unceded q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie), q̓ʷɑ:n̓ƛ̓ən̓ (Kwantlen), Máthekwi (Matsqui), and se’mya’me (Semiahmoo) territory.

Fort Gallery’s mission is to cultivate public appreciation for contemporary art and to support the work of contemporary artists. To achieve this, we prioritize providing artists with resources. Artists are given exhibition space, critical direction, artist fees, administrative support, photographic documentation, and technical support required to realize their projects. Each artist has different needs, and we strive to address these individually. By lowering barriers, we hope to encourage artists to take risks and experiment with their practices.

We are seeking proposals for solo and group exhibitions and exhibitions organized by artists, independent curators or collectives for our October 2022- December 2023 programming year. Exhibitions run 6-8 weeks.

The Fort Gallery welcomes and encourages submissions from emerging and established artists of all abilities, ages, cultures, ethnicities, citizenships, gender identities, and races. We welcome submissions of ideas/proposals, completed works, and works in progress.

Selected exhibitions will receive CARFAC fees. For group exhibitions, the solo exhibition fee will be split between all participating artists.

An information session about submissions will be held May 26 from 7-8pm on zoom.
