About the gallery:

Viewpoint Gallery is an informal exhibition space in the lobby of The City of Red Deer’s Intermediate School building, which houses many of The City’s arts and culture programs along with administrative offices. The goal of the gallery is to showcase a variety of visual art forms, offer exhibition opportunities to artists and curators, and offer visitors opportunities to engage with artists and their work. An honorarium is provided to exhibitors based on CARFAC rates recommended for the type of display space (i.e. Exhibitions in Other Public Spaces).

Submission requirements:

  • Complete contact information: name, mailing address, phone number, email address, website and social media as applicable
  • Brief description of the proposed exhibition
  • Artist’s statement or curator’s statement related to the proposed work and/or the creator’s work in general
  • Artist’s or curator’s biography
  • CV or arts résumé
  • 5-10 JPG images of supporting artwork and a corresponding image list

Proposals will be considered based on consistency and quality of work or themes submitted, demonstrated commitment to serious practice, and how the exhibition meets the artists’ objectives in the development of their own artistic practice. A diversity of artists’ voices will also be a consideration in selection.

The deadline for proposal submission is Wednesday, May 1 at 4:00 p.m. MST. Proposals can be emailed to Late and/or incomplete proposal packages will not be considered.

More information about this opportunity and an application form is available on The City’s website,
