Call for Jurors
Montgomery's Inn 2019 Art Exhibitions

About Montgomery's Inn
As part of the community since 1830, Montgomery's Inn was originally built for Thomas and Margaret Montgomery. Over the years the inn has served as a home, a place of business and a community meeting place in the heart of Etobicoke. In 1975 the restored inn was opened as a museum and today it is one of ten history museums managed by the City of Toronto. In addition to a weekly farmers' market, school programs, and special events, Montgomery's Inn has two public rooms that also function as exhibition spaces (the Community Room and the Briarly Room). The Inn uses these rooms to display a range of art using a hanging system (the multi-purpose nature of these spaces means that we cannot display sculpture, installation or 3D works of art).

About the Jury Process
The role of the jury will be to assist in the selection of 12 artists whose works will ensure a year round display of engaging art exhibitions in 2019 (10 x 2 month exhibits and 2 x 1 month exhibits). This will involve carefully assessing submissions from artists which will include a written statement and images of their works.

As a juror for Montgomery's Inn art exhibitions you will:

  • Provide fair and objective analysis, based on assessment criteria
  • Treat applications equitably, without bias or prejudice, in accordance with the Principles of the Ontario Human Rights Code
  • Work collaboratively to express personal views while respecting and listening to the views of others

Who is Eligible to Apply?
We are seeking a diverse representation of community members that are passionate about art, history and culture. We recognize and encourage applicants from communities that are further marginalized. Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in their email, which will be kept confidential. There are youth and adult positions available. The role of juror is voluntary.

No experience is necessary, but we will give preference to those who live or work in Etobicoke and/or have a significant body of experience with cultural and civic issues. The jury will be reviewing artist proposals the evenings of Wednesday, October 17th and Thursday, October 18th so these date must be available in your calendar in order to be selected as juror (food will be provided). Please express your interest by emailing by August 17th, 2018. Emails should contain an attachment of no longer than one page and include:

  • Name: first, last
  • Age bracket: youth / adult
  • Connection to Etobicoke (or Toronto): live / work / exhibit / volunteer / etc.
  • Any previous experience working or volunteering with a museum or gallery
  • Any other qualifications that you feel would make you a strong candidate to assess works of art in a community museum
  • Any experience (professional or amateur) creating or collecting art

Successful candidates will be contacted by early September regarding an interview.
