SAP Submissions

Woodlands Gallery is a commercial gallery representing a select group of contemporary Canadian artists from emerging to established career levels. We accept artists’ work on consignment, keeping a commission when the artwork is sold and sending payment to the artist after the sale is final.

Our Supplementary Artists Program (SAP) features emerging artists from Manitoba for a limited engagement, providing them with gallery exposure and mentorship while building on our mandate to support Canadian artists. This program also gives our clientele the opportunity to survey and purchase work from local artists who are not (or not yet) on our roster of artists.

Are you a local emerging artist looking for gallery exposure, but you don’t quite meet all the criteria for our Gallery Artists Submissions?

Apply to be a Woodlands Gallery SAP-ling!

SAP Submissions are accepted by email only and reviewed periodically throughout the year. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we may not have the opportunity to respond to each one. Selected artists may be chosen to participate in solo, duo or group SAP exhibitions in which we try to host one or two annually.
