NON-CURATED MEMBER & COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING

Outside the Box

The Art Gallery of Regina is proud to offer two Outside The Box exhibition venues for members: The Hallway Gallery and Glass Display Case.


The Outside the Box exhibition series is a non-curated program aimed at creating additional opportunities for AGR members to display and sell their artwork. The AGR does not pay fees to participants in these non-curated member opportunities.

These non-curated shows complement our main gallery programming. Outside the Box shows are an ideal opportunity for emerging, amateur and recreational artists!

We have two options for display:

Hallway Gallery

The hallway galleryfeatures 42 running feet of  wall display space directly outside the main gallery and can accommodate 8-10 pieces of two-dimensional work. 

Glass Display Case
The glass display case is a locked display cabinet measuring 52"h x 45"w x 21"d suitable for both two and three-dimensional artwork.

MAIN GALLERY SUBMISSIONS


The Art Gallery of Regina is an independent, non-profit contemporary art gallery. Always free, our exhibitions address experiences and issues relevant to Saskatchewan and its residents. We welcome proposals from professional artists and guest curators that provide opportunities for audiences to have meaningful experiences, discover new perspectives or tell their stories. These include solo, group exhibitions and touring shows. The AGR strives to meet or exceed the CARFAC minimum recommended fee schedule for artists whose work is included in curated, main gallery exhibitions. There is no deadline for proposals; gallery staff will acknowledge your submission upon receipt.

The Art Gallery of Regina mounts four Main Gallery exhibitions per year, programmed by the Curator of Exhibitions and Programming. Proposals serve to make us aware of an artist's work and to consider for exhibitions. Please note that most exhibitions at The Art Gallery of Regina are not drawn from proposals and are curated by staff. The curator may respond to an exhibition proposal with a request for a studio visit. Generally, exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Regina are curated three years in advance. 

MANDATE

The Art Gallery of Regina (AGR) presents the work of professional artists, primarily mid-career artists, in its engaging, inclusive, and relevant programming that reflects the diversity of contemporary art practices and the community in which we live. Priority is given to artists living in Saskatchewan or with a Saskatchewan connection. We enrich our programming by occasionally including innovative approaches, critical voices, and relevant dialogues by artists from outside Saskatchewan, often drawing upon contiguous lands encompassed by Treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10.

The objectives for the AGR's four annual curated exhibitions are: 

  • to contribute new knowledge, a unique perspective or innovative technique to the artistic discipline; 

  • to engage with issues in our local context;

  • and to facilitate communication between artists and audiences.​

RESEARCH INTERESTS
