Current Calls for Submissions:

Call for Artworks for Cézanne's Closet 2018

The Union Gallery is now accepting submissions of donated artwork for Cézanne’s Closet, which will be held at Ban Righ Hall on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

If you are interested in donating your artwork, please drop off your work anytime during gallery hours (Tues, Thurs-Sat 11-4:30pm, Wed 11-8pm). We can accept works on paper, canvas, and some small sculptures. Because tickets for the event are sold for $150, we ask artists to keep this value in mind when submitting.

Please drop off your work by December 16, 2017.

You can view the full call for submissions here.


Vitrine Projects

For the past two years the Union Gallery Vitrine Projects has featured curated projects by Queen’s University undergraduate and graduate student artists and curators in its vitrine venue located just outside the gallery. During 2017-2018 the Union Gallery will be showcasing curated projects to be held in conjunction with the gallery exhibits and invites students and local artists or curators to propose an exhibition for this space.

Intersections: Art + Research

The Union Gallery is pleased to invite graduate and undergraduate students to submit presentation proposals for its program, Intersections: Art + Research. This is a cross-disciplinary opportunity to present research in conjunction with artists exhibiting in the gallery.

We are looking for brief proposals (200-300 words) from graduate and senior undergraduate students whose research speaks to themes present in gallery exhibitions. This program encourages a cross-disciplinary approach in sharing and understanding the work being produced in the Queen’s community. Intersections: Art + Research is a recurring program throughout the year, and as such, proposals may be submitted at any time. The gallery will then select researchers whose work links thematically to exhibitions.
