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. Galerie Annexe is located on level 1 of the Ottawa Art Gallery, accessible from the Mackenzie King entrance.

Although Galerie Annexe is not a commercial dealer, we work with artists and partners to support the practice of regional artists by:

  • Consigning new artwork on a rotating basis, through an open submission process
  • Working in partnership with independent commercial galleries that kindly provide their represented artists to Galerie Annexe in order to share resources and better promote artists in our region. These galleries include Galerie St-Laurent Hill; L. A. Pai Gallery; Sivarulrasa Gallery; Studio Sixty Six and Wall Space Gallery.

Consigned works not currently on display in Galerie Annexe or other dedicated wall space in the building, are stored in our vault and remain available for purchase and viewing via our online database or by appointment.

Revenues from the Galerie Annexe support artists and the Ottawa Art Gallery programming.

  • Artists who have exclusive representation with another gallery/dealer must include that information in their submission. Please confirm consignment permission with your dealer prior to submitting
  • We accept a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and numbered edition prints
  • The works must be available for both sale and rental (artists establish the purchase price and a pre-determined rental feewill be 5% of the purchase price, charged monthly)
  • The Gallery receives a sales commission of 40% and a rental commission of 50%
