General Exhibition Information
Place des Arts offers three gallery spaces where local emerging artists and
art groups may exhibit and sell their works. Artists living in British
Columbia who are not represented by a professional gallery are
considered local, emerging artists.
Place des Arts welcomes submissions in 2D and 3D media and techniques
including fibre arts, pottery, sculpture, painting, photography, prints
and drawings; we are not able to accommodate multimedia work at this
Place des Arts’ galleries are open to the public seven days a week and are a
popular destination with local residents and visitors alike. Place des
Arts regularly hosts over 60,000 visitors per year. The centre
distributes exhibition invitation cards for display at over 20 arts and
community centres in the Lower Mainland, and its galleries and gift shop
are featured in guides such as Van Dop, Galleries West and Preview. A
full promotional campaign is devoted to each exhibition series.
As Place des Arts is also a teaching
arts centre, exhibiting artists are encouraged to offer talks and / or
demonstrations during their exhibitions.
Place des Arts is a non-profit arts education facility, not a
professional gallery. Our mandate is to support local emerging artists
by providing exhibition opportunities and exposure.
