How can I get my work exhibited at the MacKenzie?
In order to consider works for an exhibition at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, we require an Artist Exhibition Proposal (including written description and CV) supported by visual images in slide or digital format. Proposals are reviewed by committee on a quarterly basis and may be addressed to our Head Curator.
To submit work for review, please mark clearly 'Exhibition Proposal' and send to:
Administrative Assistant – Curatorial
MacKenzie Art Gallery

How are exhibitions put together?
Unlike some museums that have permanent displays, the Mackenzie Art Gallery’s exhibitions change regularly and it is the curator’s job to research and select work for exhibitions. Exhibitions are developed in three ways:
- In-House Exhibitions are created by a curator employed by the MacKenzie Art Gallery. In-house exhibitions start with an idea or theme and then artworks are selected to correlate to the vision of the exhibition. Curators acquire work for their exhibitions by borrowing from other art galleries, using artwork from the MacKenzie’s permanent collection, and/or working with artists, who sometimes create work specifically for the exhibition. Our in-house exhibitions sometimes turn into touring shows that we loan out to other galleries.
- Permanent Collection Exhibitions are curated by a MacKenzie curator and the artwork is selected exclusively from our Permanent Collection.
- Hosted Exhibitions are organized and toured to other art galleries. For a fee, the MacKenzie is able to host the exhibition in our gallery space. Hosted exhibitions are also called travelling, touring or borrowed exhibitions.
