Alumni Activities

Emily Carr Alumni Gallery at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre

Emily Carr and VSA graduates are invited to submit proposals for consideration to participate in a solo or group exhibition at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre / Emily Carr Alumni Gallery. Submissions are received on an ongoing basis by the Exhibition Committee and reviewed regularly. The program is open to all Emily Carr Full Circle members in good standing (application fee is waived for Level 2+ members).

The Gallery Committee curates and installs each show to profile the artists’ work and the artists to the broad range of audiences who visit the gallery space (see floor plan) and the theatre. All images must be family-friendly in consideration of this special public space venue (i.e. no nudity, politics or violence allowed).

Benefits for the artist include a listing in Preview Magazine and on the Emily Carr website. Click here for details on applying for this unique alumni program.
