Gallery Information

Many NSCAD students show their artwork publicly for the first time at the Anna Leonowens Gallery and at the Port Loggia Gallery. A critical yet nurturing environment, the galleries are a key component of a student’s education into the realities of life as a practising artist. Most programming is reserved for solo projects by undergraduate studio majors in all fine art, craft and design disciplines. Though exhibitions are just one week in length, students participate in the entire professional process of exhibition application, preparation and installation. Unique within the Canadian university system, the galleries allow students to experience the full template for future exhibition practices, including hosting the very popular opening night receptions and optional noon hour talks.

Graduate students acquire the exhibition spaces for two-week periods, to mount and defend their final thesis projects. Group exhibitions often consist of thesis-oriented projects organized by students, as well as exhibitions showcasing activity within specific divisions. The university also sponsors several six-credit internship programs including a graduation catalogue design practicum, a curatorial graduation exhibition internship and a Seeds Gallery internship among others. This initiative offers senior students an opportunity to develop assemble an exhibition and publish a catalogue under the guidance of the gallery director and faculty members.

Please note: Since all exhibition programming is developed within the university from student, faculty and divisional sources, the Anna Leonowens Gallery does not accept unsolicited professional exhibition proposals.
