The RDAC Visual Arts Committee oversees the operations of the Kiwanis Gallery. Red Deer Arts Council pays artists fees in accordance with CARFAC rates for Exhibitions in Other Public Places, where applicable. Packing materials must be returned with the artist as there is no storage at the gallery. This call is open for Alberta Artists to apply unless the artist has family in the region – the RDAC does not pay travel or shipping costs. Shipping is the responsibility of the artist(s). Insurance is carried by the artist(s).

Note: Artists who have shown at the gallery in the previous two years are not eligible to apply until the third year, with an exhibit held in the fourth year. (For example, if you applied and had a show in 2020, you could submit again in 2023 for a 2024 exhibition.)
