Art Gallery of Mississauga Juried Show of Fine Arts
Juried Show of Fine Art Jurors
Committment to Mississauga
A number of notable Canadian artists hail from Mississauga, and a significant emerging artist population exists in and around the 905 Peel region. In accordance with the AGM mandate, the gallery showcases the talent that originated here, and supports the potential talent currently being incubated.
The AGM defines a “Mississauga artist” as one who fulfills one of three conditions:
- The artist currently resides in Mississauga or the 905 region.
- The artist was born or raised in Mississauga, regardless of where they currently reside.
- The artist’s project demonstrates a strong connection to Mississauga, regardless of where the artist is from or where they currently reside.
Exhibition Proposal Guidelines
The AGM is committed to exhibiting work that advances critical enquiry and community connection to contemporary visual arts. The Gallery accepts proposals from artists working in all media, artist collectives, curators and arts and culture institutions.
Email all proposals to the curator firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send all proposals to this email address.
Only digital submissions are accepted. Proposals are reviewed twice yearly by the curatorial staff. If your application is short-listed, you will receive a response via email. Please note exhibitions are booked at least 2 years in advance.
The AGM welcomes an active interest from individuals with broad cross-cultural perspectives and seeks out opportunities to engage migrant, Indigenous communities and visible minority groups to create synergies through art and culture.
The Gallery is an equal opportunity employer that actively seeks out and welcomes cultural diversity. We are interested in hearing from exceptional people. Our recruitment and selection process is comprehensive and rigorous to ensure that all applicants receive fair, equitable and objective treatment.
Send your resumes and project proposals to email@example.com with the subject line Project Proposal for future consideration.
