Gallery Spaces for Proposal
Main Gallery: Features professional contemporary artists. This is our largest exhibition hall, featuring plywood backed walls, open floor space, five pillars and the option for natural light.
Discovery Gallery: Features professional contemporary artists. This is our second largest exhibition hall, which is entered off the Main Gallery, featuring one window and a smaller atmosphere.
Satellites: Four cases in the Gallery / Visitor Centre lobby measuring at 6 feet by 6 feet (1 foot depth) is reserved for local and emerging artists.
The Campbell River Art Gallery pays CARFAC Artist Fee Rates to exhibiting artists.
Discussion to apply for additional funding to cover costs for travel, accommodation, materials, and installation will be discussed between artist and curator. Artists are encouraged to attend the Opening Reception and give an Artist Talk.
The gallery documents all exhibitions digitally for the artist’s use, publicity, and for our archives. Shots are primarily of the installation and rarely of singular artworks.
The gallery is a non-profit public art gallery. We do not sell artworks, but will direct patrons to the artist. Price lists are solely used for insurance purposes.
Thank you for your interest in the Campbell River Art Gallery.
