Sunshine Coast residents aged two to eighteen are invited to submit their artwork for display at the Gallery during our annual SHOUT OUT exhibition. In addition to offering an inspiring body of work that represents the creativity of our community’s youth, this exhibition is also an opportunity for young people to experience what it is like to be a professional exhibiting artist at GPAG. Don’t miss this vibrant and popular exhibition featuring drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, and more running March 14 – March 31. See our submission guidelines and form. Entry is free and submissions will be accepted March 7 – 10, 2024. Deadline, 4pm Sunday, March 10.

General submissions for exhibitions at GPAG in 2025 are now open. The deadline to submit is March 31, 2024.

Joe’s Lounge (formerly, the GPAG boardroom) is our newest exhibition space, named after GPAG benefactor, the late Joe Peters of Gibsons. The vision of Joe’s Lounge is to provide a salon-style exhibition space for members of Gibsons Public Art Gallery. It’s the perfect space for emerging artists or those with a smaller body of work. Applications are accepted on a first-come first-served basis and an honorarium will be offered to each artist. Artists working in all mediums may apply. Please note: due to the number of applications received, exhibitions are now closed for 2024. If you are interested in applying for an exhibition in 2025 you can check out the space in person and submission guidelines online.

The inaugural season of shows in Joe’s Lounge is generously sponsored by Russ Qureshi and Jon McRae of Coast Lifestyles Network Realty.

We encourage local and visiting artists of all abilities to contribute and donate to the tiny art gallery. This is a free exchange (similar to a tiny library); you bring in a piece of art and exchange it for one of your choosing. Pieces are not juried, but are selected for display at the discretion of the Gallery. Donations of tiny artworks (without exchanging) are also welcome.

The size is limited to six inches by six inches maximum and can be either 2D or 3D. Please ensure 2D work is ready to hang.

The Tiny Art Gallery is located in the front west window of the Gibsons Public Art Gallery and will be open for exchange during gallery hours and visible 24/7. Drop by and have a look. Take photos and share on social media (tag #gpagart).

In addition, we will be featuring a ‘tiny’ artist exhibit each month (for four weeks duration) in a side window. To be featured, artists should apply to info@gpag.ca with your name, contact information (including email) and information about your artwork (type, size, genre). Artists do not need to be GPAG members, although membership in our gallery is a wonderful opportunity and is strongly encouraged. Applications to be a featured ‘tiny’ artist will be on a first come, first served basis. The size limitations for pieces apply and there is room for three to five pieces of art. These art pieces will be available for sale, if the artist so wishes. We also strongly encourage the featured artist to donate a piece to the Tiny Art Gallery for free exchange. Note: featured artists and work may be identified in gallery promotional materials.
