Union Gallery

Submissions: Exhibitions & Projects

General Information

The gallery exhibition program supports the presentation of visual art that reflects a contemporary art practice by pre-professional student artists and professional artists including visual, interdisciplinary and time-based artworks, both solo and group shows. We also accept submissions for curatorial projects, events, and workshops. There are two exhibition spaces: the main gallery (approx. 1000 square ft) and the project room (16x10x16), a self-contained space located inside the main gallery. The project room mandate is to present installation, new media, time and sound-based works although other proposals will be considered.

Submissions for Exhibitions and Projects - Application Requirements

The Union Gallery invites submissions for the annual November 15 deadline. This includes exhibitions, projects, collaborations, and workshops for our 2019-2020 programming season. We encourage submissions from extra-regional, national and Kingston-based artists.

The exhibitions are selected by a jury made up of experienced professionals and students. Student applicants are encouraged to obtain feedback on their application from a professional in the field. Students who have exhibited in the main gallery with 4 or fewer artists will not be considered for an exhibition within 12 months of their last exhibition.
