Exhibition Submissions

Calling Local Artists!

Find out how to apply to have your work considered for an exhibit.


If you would like to be considered for an exhibition of your work, please send a written package to the curator, following the outlined requirements below.


We receive numerous exhibition requests throughout the year, and a board reviews submissions on a twice a year basis (February & September). The Georgina Arts Centre & Gallery plans its exhibitions well in advance, aiming to have an upcoming exhibition schedule in place for the next 3 years. This provides us with sufficient time to plan and organize major exhibitions as well as related educational, marketing and fundraising initiatives.


Required Submission Package for The Georgina Arts Centre & Gallery

To build your Submission Package, you will need:


  • 8 to 12 images of your work (jpg’s only) on CD or DVD. Be sure to save files as follows: 01TitleYourLastname.jpg, 02TitleYourLastname.jpg, etc.
  • An accompanying list of works that includes title, medium, dimensions, year and price
  • A brief artists statement (maximum 250 words)
  • A Curriculum Vitae
  • A Letter of intent
  • If you would like the material returned to you, include a self-addressed, postage paid return envelope



1. Submissions will not be returned without a return envelope.

2. When a submission is accepted and an exhibition date has been scheduled, the artist(s) must sign the contract with the Georgina Arts Centre & Gallery at least 6 months (180 days) before the opening date. We reserve the right to cancel an exhibition for which the contract is not signed.


Please address all submission packages to:

The Georgina Arts Centre has a number of exhibition types for which artists can submit their work:

  • The Gallery Shoppe has a year-long contract where 2-4 pieces can be displayed (maximum to total of 4 sq. ft). There is a nominal contract/commission fee and the intake, once accepted, is immediate.
  • A solo and/or shared “themed” exhibit in the Main Gallery. This is a longer process (the GAC is currently booking exhibits into 2017), but there is no submission/contract fee, only a commission upon sales.
  • A Juried Competition every fall which any artist can enter in any medium.
  • Satellite Galleries, located off-site in places such as the Georgina Libraries.
