Canfor Galleries

The Gallery hosts quarterly exhibitions in two exhibition spaces. Emphasis is on showing work of professional artists and on bringing exhibitions of national importance to Prince George.

Gallery Physical Specifications

The Galleries are each roughly 1300 square feet with 140 running feet of wall space. Two exhibitions usually run concurrently. Each Gallery has fourteen-foot high side walls, terminating in a sloping ceiling. Gallery temperature and relative humidity are kept within the paramaters of generally accepted museum standards (21° C and 47.5% RH) and light levels from overhead track lighting can be easily controlled.

Artist Support

Two Rivers Gallery is a professionally run public art gallery. As such it is not our practice to hold exhibitions of art for the purpose of sale. We support artists exhibiting in the Gallery by providing:

  • artist’s fees
  • shipping
  • exhibition promotion
  • exhibition installation
  • insurance for work in our care

Crating and, where appropriate, framing or specialized mounts is typically the responsibility of the artist and must meet appropriate standards.

Artists' Submissions

Most exhibitions are developed by Two Rivers Gallery’s curatorial team, however  artists are encouraged to submit portfolios of recent work to the Curator & Artistic Director. Portfolios will be reviewed periodically.

If you wish to submit a portfolio of recent work you might consider sending us the following:

 

  • A current resume or curriculum vitae;
  • High-resolution good quality images: jpegs or tiffs, for example. All images must be labelled with the artist’s name, and title of work. PowerPoint presentations will not be accepted;
  • An image list including titles, date of production, medium and size;
  • A statement relating to your practice and current work.
  • A link to your website and/or social media platforms. 

If you have any questions, please contact George Harris, Curator and Artistic Director.

Sculpture Court 

This is an outdoor space that is unsheltered and exposed to the elements. Artists are encouraged to consider seasonal change and its impact on the Sculpture Court and the work therein. This space is dedicated to exhibiting sculpture and installation work, but will also consider projects that fall outside of this domain. Exhibitions will generally extend from October to May and from May to October. Artists will receive a professional fee for exhibiting in this space.

Please submit questions to Meghan Hunter-Gauthier, Assistant Curator.
