Exhibition Assistance

WWG is a Zone 5 recommender for the Ontario Arts Council’s Exhibition Assistance program. In addition to the OAC program priorities and criteria, the Gallery prioritizes applications from artists at a significant point in their practice, helping them to disseminate their work beyond their locality and increasing the public’s capacity to view contemporary art across Ontario.

The Gallery accepts applications from June 1st to January 16th and reviews them on a first come first serve basis.  The programming committee reviews applications in July, October, and January.

For Exhibition Assistance program guidelines and application forms, please visit the OAC webpage.

NOTE: Applicants are now also required to create a profile in OAC’s online system, NOVA, because applicants will be notified about grant results through that system.

Digital submissions are preferred. Please send a copy of the completed application form, letter of confirmation of exhibition, and any supplementary materials to: programming@whitewatergallery.com
