The deadline for submission of exhibition proposals is Thursday, June 30, 2022, at 11:59 PM MST. As per standard art gallery practice, the Gallery's exhibition schedule is programmed a full year in advance. This enables the gallery to fulfill provincial and federal government funding requirements and provide adequate planning time to mount significant exhibitions that are supported through educational programs and public relations.

The selection of exhibits for 2023 will be finalized by the end of August 2022 via a selection committee.  Studio visits and/or additional correspondence may be requested of applicants prior to final decisions being made.
