Call for Visual Artists


Professional and semi-professional artists (i.e. artists who have had two or more solo exhibitions up to the submission date and who have participated in group exhibitions for at least the past five years) who wish to be considered for exhibitions at Galerie de la Ville in Dollard-Des Ormeaux, a not-for-profit gallery with an educational mandate, are invited to submit anytime during the year:

Include in your dossier:

1. A letter of intent describing the type of work and the themes or concepts being proposed.
2. A  USB key with digital images in a Jpeg format of 20 works, demonstrating the artists’ principal medium, technique, subject or theme
3. A descriptive list of the submitted images, including title, year, medium or media, and dimensions of each piece
4. The artist’s updated curriculum vitae; maximum 2 pages
5. The artist’s general bio or statement; maximum 1 page
6. Copies of press clippings, articles or catalogues, if applicable; maximum 4. Do not include listings.
7. A stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of documentation. Dossiers will not be mailed back otherwise and must be reclaimed in person.

Prior to final selection, eligible artists will be asked for a studio visit.

Artists who have had a solo or a duo exhibition at Galerie de la Ville five or more years ago are welcome to submit a new proposal. A phone call is sufficient to schedule a studio visit.

Note that the gallery pays a modest honorarium for solo and duo exhibitions, covers the invitation card, limited mailing, and the vernissage, and insures the exhibition as a whole. Security is also provided. The curator and her staff install the exhibition.

Artists should send their submissions and address all enquiries to:
