Galerie Annexe Submissions

GALERIE ANNEXE SUBMISSIONS:

Celebrating the vitality of the arts and cultural sector in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, Galerie Annexe promotes artists working within this area through the rental, sale, and exhibition of their artwork.

Artists must live or work within 150 km of the Gallery to be considered. Artworks selected by the jury will be consigned to Galerie Annexe for approximately 12 months.

  • Submission to Galerie Annexe will be juried by Gallery staff and a selected representative from the local arts community.
  • New submission deadline: ***PLEASE NOTE THAT DATES FOR 2022 SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON***
  • Artists will be informed of the jury’s decision when 2022 dates for submission have been announced.
  • The intention of this submission process is to have your works taken on as consignment pieces for the commercial gallery, which includes the rotation of your work on view as well as the opportunity to sell and rent your artwork through the gallery.

When not on display in Galerie Annexe or other dedicated wall space in the building, artwork is viewable through our online database, or in our vault by appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: this submission is not specifically for/does not guarantee an exhibition. If you have exclusive representation with another gallery/dealer, we must be made aware of this so we can arrange consignment permission through them.
