Friday,  June 7 - Saturday, July 20 

Friday, Aug 2 - Saturday, Sept 14

All proposals are accepted or denied based on the review of the Waterloo Arts Gallery Committee in consultation with the Gallery Coordinator. Upon reviewing, the committee may also counterpropose to pair artists together for group shows. 

To submit an exhibition for consideration, please complete the form below. Email with any questions.
