Fort Gallery is welcoming submissions to be considered for our programming in the future.

Fort Gallery is a mobile artist-run-centre hosting exhibitions in various spaces in a region south of Fraser River which overlaps with the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem peoples.

 We welcome and encourage submissions from emerging and established artists of all abilities, ages, cultures, ethnicities, citizenships, gender identities, and races. We welcome submissions of ideas/proposals, completed works, and works in progress.

Our programming is scheduled based on funding and exhibition space availability. Proposals will be kept on record for consideration by the Exhibitions Committee and/or guest curator.
