The Mann Art Gallery welcomes proposals from artists and curators in all media for exhibitions or special projects. The MAG presents a diverse program of exhibitions, lectures, and artist talks, and produces curated exhibitions connected to its Vision and Mission. Together, the programmes propose a critical reflection on today's art and culture with specific relevance to North Central Saskatchewan.
The MAG has two exhibition spaces and provides professional technical services for the selected projects. The MAG pays fees to artists and curators in accord with CARFAC/CARCC standards. Submitted projects are assessed and recommended for program inclusion by the Director/Curator. Please note that we are programmed two years in advance.

2021 Programming Year
Deadline: October 15, 2020
The John V. Hicks Gallery is located in the historic Prince Albert Arts Centre. The gallery’s mandate is to present a diverse schedule of exhibitions by Prince Albert-based artists, guilds, and collectives, and touring exhibitions through the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils. Exhibitions at the Hicks Gallery are programmed and presented by the Mann Art Gallery and the Prince Albert Council for the Arts, thanks to the support of the City of Prince Albert, Sask Culture, and Sask Lotteries.
We welcome proposals for exhibitions in all media from local Prince Albert artists, guilds, and collectives. The Hicks Gallery has one exhibition space and provides professional technical services for the selected projects. Exhibitions change on a monthly basis. Artists are responsible for transporting pieces to and from the Hicks Gallery and to ensure the work is presentable (i.e. framed; outfitted with hanging hardware, etc.)
The gallery does NOT currently offer CARFAC/CARCC exhibition fees. Submitted projects are assessed and recommended for program inclusion by the Director/Curator of the Mann Art Gallery. The John V. Hicks Gallery typically programs 6 months - 1 year in advance.
