The focus of the HUB Gallery is on three main streams of exhibitions: Community Exhibits, Exhibits by Emerging Artists, and Educational Exhibits.
Community Exhibits: artsPlace hosts a number of exhibitions created by artists who currently reside in the Bow Valley, with an aim to celebrate the local creative talent by showcasing our artist instructors, local youth, individual artists, and local artist groups. An annual call for community submissions goes out in the fall. Submissions are reviewed by a committee of local artists and community members.
Exhibits by Emerging Artists: artsPlace provides an artistic platform to support Alberta emerging artists interested in pursuing a career in the arts, by helping them to gain valuable exhibition experience. An annual call for submissions goes out in the fall. Submissions are reviewed by a committee of professional contemporary artists.
Educational Exhibits: artsPlace endeavors to include exhibitions that serve to educate the Bow Valley community about contemporary arts and to bring in new and engaging artwork to be experienced by the Bow Valley community. This may include TREX, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program designed to promote Alberta art and artists through professionally developed exhibitions, as well as other partnerships and projects.
Some exhibitions may fit in more than one category. For example, Community Exhibits or Exhibits by Emerging Artists, may also serve to provide educational opportunities to the Bow Valley Community to experience contemporary arts, or a Community-Created Exhibit may be created by an emerging artist.
