Call for Gallery Membership Applications

Gerrard Art Space / GAS Inc. is a community focused, membership driven, dedicated art space. Our mandate is to support, promote and facilitate the creation of a variety of art forms, including visual, performance, music, poetry, spoken word and film.

Regular programming includes workshops, classes, and shows that engage neighbourhood residents and the Toronto art community. GAS prioritizes accessibility, inclusivity, and open dialogue in both its programming and outreach, working to build and sustain a creative, vibrant community.

To emphasize our commitment to inclusivity, we regularly host call for submission shows that are non-juried and open to the public. We encourage all who are engaged in the creative process. Whether you have an art practice or this is your very first attempt, you and your work will be made most welcome.

We are pleased to announce that we have opened applications for new memberships to our gallery community. We have memberships for individuals as well for small and larger groups.

A membership guarantees the following:

  1. One three week show per membership.
  2. Participation in the yearly members’ group show. This show is optional but included in your membership.
  3. Opportunity to participate in the gallery’s open call shows at the membership discount.
  4. Opportunity to participate in the weekly life-drawing sessions we host at the membership discount.
  5. Each membership receives a webpage on the GAS website. As well as showcasing your work and exhibition history, this page may also be used for cross promotion to direct interested parties to your own website, and other events, shows or art fairs that you may be participating in.
  6. The opportunity to become part of the growing GAS community that we have nurtured over the past 11 years.

GAS offers several levels of memberships to accommodate how often you intend to create a show (every 18, 24 or 36 months). Memberships stretched over 2 years or more allows for smaller monthly payments, divided over the length of the membership.

Please check out the membership page for details.

Application Deadline: Open until filled

Application Process:

Please email us a statement of intent expressing your interest in becoming a member. Indicate the type of art you or your group practices as well as some images or a short video.
