Applications must be postmarked by October 15 to be considered for the coming programming year. Decisions are made within 4 months of the deadline date, and so often relate to subsequent years’ exhibition schedule. The exhibition schedule is often programmed roughly 2 years in advance. This enables the gallery to fulfil provincial and federal government funding requirements and provides adequate planning time to mount significant exhibitions that are supported through educational programs and public relations.
