Alberta Printmakers Main Space Gallery provides paid opportunities for artists from a variety of locations, working in a range of concepts and techniques, to exhibit their work. A/P provides opportunities for artistic and public communities to experience the diversity of print media art as a contemporary and vital artistic medium. Alberta Printmakers, including the Main Space Gallery is located at 4025 4 St SE, in Calgary (Moh’kins’tsis), Alberta.

Applications will be reviewed between December and January by an invited juror, A/P staff, and members of our community.  Please stay tuned to A/P’s website and social media for a future announcement. Applications will be chosen based on artistic and conceptual merit and feasibility of the proposed exhibition within the Main Space Gallery. 

Gallery Mandate

Operating since 1989, Alberta Printmakers’ Society (A/P) cultivates an inclusive and collaborative environment to learn about printmaking, to create printed works, and to pursue exciting artistic opportunities. We demonstrate this through our publicly accessible Main Space Gallery programming and emerging artist satellite exhibitions, through our studio facilities and educational programming, and by regularly coordinating projects and  events that foster artistic excellence and community engagement in printmaking and the arts. 

A/P has an open membership. It is governed by a board of directors and operated by the Executive Director and  Studio Assistant, who reach out to volunteers to accomplish A/P’s goals. 

 

A/P gratefully acknowledges that our activities take place on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First  Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
