How to Exhibit

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 time.

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 90,000 visitors per year. The centre distributes exhibition invitation cards for display 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.

Please note: 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.
