Annual Opportunities (not currently open for submissions):
Each month, our Gallery Shop (or shop.leightoncentre.org if we are temporarily closed due to health regulations) features up to five artists, each with an approximately 3′ x 6′ space to display a small collection of their works. The artist chooses which pieces to submit to fill the space available (e.g. one large painting, multiple smaller paintings or a combination – your choice!).
Here’s how it works:

The Leighton Art Centre invites submissions from artists, artist groups, and curators of all artistic backgrounds working in all genres, styles, and mediums for exhibition in 2022. We endeavor to provide a platform for artists at all levels of their artistic careers, as well as present diverse programming and a stimulating exhibition schedule that challenges, and appeals to, a wide audience.
Deadline for submissions: 12 pm (noon) on Monday, July 5, 2021.
Artists will be notified of their result by July 30, 2021.
The Leighton Art Centre preference is for exhibitions that are for sale, however, we are willing to work with artists and curators to pursue grant funding to cover fees for projects such as installations and non-commercial exhibitions. The LAC takes a commission of 40% on all sales. All exhibitions are organized by the LAC in coordination with the artist. Exhibitions generally run between four and eight consecutive weeks.
For more details or assistance please contact our Manager of Exhibitions, Events & Volunteers, Lindsay Corbet at email@example.com or 403.931.3153.
This annual juried exhibition, open to both members and non-members of Leighton Art Centre, with a nominal per-piece submission fee, honours the practice of creating art outdoors, in the moment.

The exhibition format(s) will depend on the current state of health regulations at that time but, as of now, is anticipated to be held in person, with an online catalogue and online sales (within Canada) also available.
This popular annual exhibition showcases the very best of the Leighton Art Centre’s artist members’ work, in all styles and mediums.
