Call for submissions from Calgary and surrounding area of visual artists, art collectives and multicultural community organization for the following spaces Ledge Gallery, Window Galleries, and Lightbox Studio for the 2018-19 season.

Deadline: Submissions must be sent before 11:59PM on Monday, October 2nd, 2017.

LEDGE GALLERY is most conducive to sculpture, installation and artist in residence – please note that the work is viewed from outside of the windows looking in unless the artist is present (performative piece).

WINDOW GALLERIES encompass four spaces, painted white, conducive to sculptural/installation work, three of the windows are more suited to 2D artwork (drawing, painting, photography etc.) All have varied measurements and some are equipped with lighting and power sources.

LIGHTBOX STUDIO is a 17’x9’ site specifically for local artists, designers, writers and cultural producers to exhibit works in progress, ideas that are in the middle stages of development or a place to experiment with visual culture.

For more information and to download the submissions package please go to

All applicants are strongly encouraged to view the space that they are applying for before submitting their proposal; these are not typical white box gallery spaces. The Ledge Gallery and the Window Galleries are located in high traffic areas; consider that members of the public from all age groups and diverse backgrounds will be viewing the artwork.
Only registered users may comment.
Pass a quick registration or authorization.
