Art House Special Exhibitions are our way of offering up our walls to the community, creating space for collaboration and connection.

Individuals or groups are invited to apply to curate and present their work in our Drawing Room for a month-long exhibition.


Special Exhibitions at Art House are our way of building creative connections, directly linking artists with the community and providing them a platform to show their work. Special Exhibition programming is just about to restart after a long pause, we're thrilled to be spotlighting local artists once again! Visit our Submit page if you'd like to find out more about submitting your own body of work.

Isabelle Miltioux - October 2017


Art House Special Exhibitions are our way of offering up our walls to the community, creating space for collaboration and connection. Artists and curators have the opportunity to use the walls of our Drawing Room space for a month-long exhibition with a rental fee of $250 (plus HST).
Art House is happy to celebrate your Special Exhibition by facilitating a vernissage, complete with two bottles of wine on us. Also included in the rental fee is promotion of your exhibition via our highly-engaged social media channels and posters in high-traffic areas of our space. Of course, the number of Special Exhibitions we can host in a year is limited, so we encourage you to consider your proposal carefully  to submit your very best work.

See our Submit page for full details on how to apply for a Special Exhibition at Art House.
