CALL FOR ARTISTS FOR VAULT EXHIBIT SPACE
The Art Gallery of St. Albert is located in the historic Banque d’Hochelaga building in downtown St. Albert. With the gallery residing in a converted bank building, it benefits from many unique and interesting architectural features, including a decommissioned 100 square foot ‘Vault’ space on the main level. Repurposed over the years from bank vault to store room and currently to gallery space, this sound-proofed intimate space provides the ideal setting for small group film viewing as well as single site-specific installation works.
The Gallery seeks proposals from artists interested in utilizing this space for short term exhibitions of single artworks created or tailored for this space.

Information on how to submit a proposal for this space can be found here
