We welcome proposals each year for the Doris Crowston Gallery at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. We encourage proposals for exhibitions and artwork that will challenge visitors, provoke conversations and connect to pressing concerns of our time. While membership in the SCAC is not required in order to make a submission to the gallery, selected artists must become members if they are selected to exhibit.

We are looking for submissions from the greatest range of art mediums and forms. As we have limits for what we can display, we encourage you to visit the Arts Centre before submitting a proposal. We have a commitment to education and engagement, and present at least one workshop/talk/program with each exhibition. We encourage submitting artists to be willing to present an artist talk or demonstration, or have a suggestion for another program (performance, music, dance, etc) related to their exhibition.
