Exhibition Opportunities For Artists

We accept submissions on an ongoing basis from artists and guest curators for the main and ramp galleries. Follow this link to submit your exhibition proposal via Submittable. Exhibitions are reviewed on an on-going basis and the process can take time. We recognize and appreciate the work required to prepare submissions. Studio visits may be part of the selection process.

Selected artists are supported in the development of their exhibition by the Curator and provided contracts, CARFAC fees that meet or exceed minimums, letters of support for funding applications, fine art shipping, insurance, travel, hospitality, hotel, promotional materials, and documentation. Artists are encouraged to be involved in the exhibition installation plan which is completed by a trained professional installation crew.

We present approximately 16 exhibitions per year: 4 are developed for the main gallery, 8 for the ramp galleries, and 4 from the Permanent Collection.

The AGP strives to reflect the whole of our community through our programs and operations. We continue to seek major exhibitions and projects that engage and support the work of BIPOC artists, curators and performers.

Submission requirements:

  • Title
  • Exhibition Proposal: a description of the proposed project including technical requirements and estimated completion dates for work in development
  • Statement
  • Biography
  • Current CV
  • Documentation (up to 20 files)
  • Documentation List

Please note: Due to higher than normal volume of submissions, responses may take several months.

https://agp.on.ca/programs/youth-mentorship/ Opportunities For Youth Artists

Now in its second year, the Youth Art Mentorship Program (YAM) offers senior high school students the opportunity to work directly with professional mentors in a gallery setting. Successful applicants will develop a new body of work and participate in a public art exhibition at the Art Gallery of Peterborough along with a group of their peers.

Submit your Youth Art Mentorship application via Submittable before 11:59pm on December 16, 2022.

We are also offering free Portfolio Review Sessions to local students. These sessions offer youth the opportunity to present their portfolios to working arts professionals. Portfolio reviews are a great way to build confidence and encourage youth by gathering a range of opinions and advice through critical feedback, which can help strengthen their work and prepare for applications and entrance interviews to post-secondary studio programs for University and College.

Register now to secure your place in one of our Portfolio Review Sessions happening on November 19 and 26. The deadline to register is November 16, 2022

The Art Gallery of Peterborough’s Acquisitions Committee carefully considers works of art for donation or purchase to the Permanent Collection. If you are interested in donating work to the Permanent Collection, please contact the gallery to inquire about the process.

The gallery is OPEN Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am - 5 pm. Admission is always FREE!
