OAC Exhibition Assistance

OAC Exhibition Assistance

Gallery 44 is a third party recommender in the Ontario Arts Council's Exhibition Assistance Program. We accept applications for exhibition assistance from Ontario artists with a confirmed exhibition of photography or photo-based work. Applications must be received prior to the opening date of the exhibition and no later than our deadlines of June 14, 2019 and November 15, 2019. Applications may be submitted up to one year in advance of the exhibition. Please do not call or email to inquire about remaining funds in our budget, Gallery 44 ensures that funds are available for both our deadlines.

For detailed information about the Exhibition Assistance Program, including eligibility and requirements, please review the information on the Ontario Arts Council website.
