Junction North GalleryCall for Submissions Spring 2018

In the Northern hemisphere, the North Star (or Polaris) is known as the guiding star in a night sky. Located nearest the north celestial pole, Polaris shows us where due north is and has been used historically as a way-finder and reference point. Junction North Gallery, inspired by the North Star, is a hub and a reference point in Western Canada that brings together creative projects and emergent ideas from the fields of art, design and environmental studies.
