Call for Submissions

Deadline: Monday, April 3, 2023, at noon.

Submission guidelines, compensation and timeline are available on the city’s website.

This is a call for part of 2023 (August to December) and the 2024 (January to December) Exhibition Programs.

Visual artists with an active practice, dedication to the development of excellence and innovation in their art, and some exhibition history, are invited to submit proposals for bi-monthly exhibitions in Kitchener city hall’s Rotunda Gallery.

The program welcomes diverse viewpoints and media (painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, mixed media), supporting the principles of intellectual freedom while respecting the public nature of the location. We welcome applications from Indigenous, Black, racialized and 2SLGBTQ+ persons, as well as other equity deserving individuals. We will consider applications from all Ontario artists. However, applicants from Waterloo region or with a connection to the region, will be given preference so we can continue to build and promote the development of visual arts in our area.

About the Space
The gallery is a unique exhibition space, with a curved, wooden hanging wall that includes a 48-foot picture rail, and 48 inches of vertical hanging space. The space is ideal for displaying two-dimensional artwork, hung using the existing suspended rod picture rail. Each piece of artwork must work with this hanging system.
