Annexe Submissions 2


OAG Shop and Galerie Annexe
The new OAG has been open for just over one year, and our new purpose-built space is as full of energy and excitement as it has ever been!
This past year has seen the expansion of many departments for the OAG, included among them Galerie Annexe, the commercial gallery space and the OAG Shop, our first ever, dedicated boutique. Celebrating the vitality of the arts and cultural sector in Ottawa-Gatineau, our new commercial spaces strive to focus on the artist and makers of the region. This is a collective opportunity for both the gallery and regional artists to showcase the unique excellence of local arts.
We are looking for artists and makers to submit original, handmade and one-of-a-kind pieces. These products can range in price points and can include ceramics, jewellery, textiles, sculptures, prints and oneoffs. We want to hear from you!
Galerie Annexe and the OAG Shop are two distinct spaces and each have a different set of qualifications and instructions for submissions. Please refer to the detailed submission processes below.
Any additional questions can be directed to Amanda Henry, Supervisor, Commercial Gallery and Shop either by phone at 613-233-8699, or via email at
Submissions to the OAG Shop will be juried by both gallery staff and selected representatives from the local arts community. The deadline is no later than 30 June, 2019 and applicants will be informed in July of the jury’s decision.

This gallery space, formerly known as ART Rental and Sales, promotes artists working within the Ottawa-Gatineau region, through the rental, sale and exhibition of their work. Artists must live or work within 150km of the Gallery to be considered. Artworks selected by the jury will be consigned to Galerie Annexe for approximately 12 months.
The submission will be juried by both gallery staff and a selected representative from the local arts community. We will be accepting submissions now, up until 30 June 2019. Artists will be informed of the jury’s decision in July.
The intention of this submission process is to have your works taken on as consignment pieces for the commercial gallery, which includes the rotation of your work on view as well as the opportunity to sell and rent your artwork through the gallery. This submission is not specifically for an exhibition.

If you have exclusive representation with another gallery/dealer, we must be made aware of this so we can arrange consignment permission through them.
