The Art Gallery of Peterborough is located on the traditional territory of the Michi Sagiig Anishinaabe, adjacent to Haudenosaunee territory and in the territory covered by the Williams Treaty.
We accept submissions on an ongoing basis from artists and guest curators for the main and ramp galleries. A floor plan of the main gallery is available for download on our website here. Exhibitions are reviewed on an on-going basis and the process can take time. We recognize and appreciate the work required to prepare submissions. Studio visits may be part of the selection process.
Selected artists are supported in the development of their exhibition by the Curator and provided contracts, CARFAC fees that meet or exceed minimums, letters of support for funding applications, fine art shipping, insurance, travel, hospitality, hotel, promotional materials, and documentation. Artists are encouraged to be involved in the exhibition installation plan which is completed by a trained professional installation crew.
We present approximately 16 exhibitions per year: 4 are developed for the main gallery, 8 for the ramp galleries, and 4 from the Permanent Collection.
The AGP strives to reflect the whole of our community through our programs and operations. We continue to seek major exhibitions and projects that engage and support the work of BIPOC artists, curators and performers.
