Accepting submission from Calgary and surrounding area of visual artists, art collectives and multicultural community organization for the following spaces:

Ledge Gallery: is the most conducive to sculpture, installation and performative pieces – please note that the work is viewed from outside of the windows looking in unless the artist is present (performative piece). To view examples of current Ledge Gallery programming go to the Arts Commons website HERE

Window Galleries: are seven window spaces located across from the Max Bell Theatre. Four of the windows are conducive to sculptural/installation work, three of the windows are more suited to 2D artwork (drawing, painting, photography etc.). Each window is painted white; all have varied measurements, and some are equipped with lighting and power sources. To view examples of current Window Galleries programming go to the Arts Commons website HERE

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. These works in progress take form through an artist in residency format where the space is provided to be used as a studio and exhibition space.
