How are artists chosen to show their work at the gallery?
There are several ways artists can exhibit their work at the Mann Art Gallery, Prince Albert's professional public art gallery.
1. Annual Winter Festival: Any member who purchases an annual Mann Art Gallery membership can enter 1 artwork in the Annual Winter Festival Art Show & Sale. Artwork must meet eligibility requirements and comply with gallery exhibition standards. Information about Winter Festival is released each year in late October, and the submission and drop-off dates are in late January. No exhibition experience is required. More details are found here on the "Exhibitions - Winter Festival" page.
2. Submit an Exhibition Proposal: The Mann Art Gallery's submission proposal deadline is October 15, annually. The submission requirements can be found on our website under "Exhibitions - Submissions." Our mandate is to show work by artists with a connection to north-central Saskatchewan or whose content will connect with our regional community. As a professional public gallery which pays CARFAC SK exhibition royalties and fees, we typically show artists with an exhibition history and a distinct body of work or series.
How are artists chosen for inclusion in the Gift Shop?
Our Gift Shop features art by gallery members. Work is chosen by the Director/Curator. You can email examples of your work to curator@ mannartgallery.ca. We change the Gift Shop seasonally, and retain a 30% commission on items sold.
Jobs & Careers:
We apply for grants to hire summer students each year as Assistant Educators and Collections Assistants. If these grants are approved, summer student jobs are posted late April - early May. Occasionally academic-year Internships will be posted as grant funds allow.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist us in a variety of ways! Setting up for events and receptions, bar-tending at special events and fundraisers, assisting with drop-in art programs.
