The gallery has nine (9) portrait-orientated display frames that are approx. 8' by 5'. Each frame is wrapped in digitally printed vinyl with one (1) piece of art. All art mediums are considered as long as they are suitable for reproduction in a 2-dimensional high-resolution image that can be printed on vinyl.

Only one artist or arts collective will be selected for all nine (9) pieces. Artwork can be created specifically for this call or be previous work that fits the requirements. 

The artist or art collective selected to present work in The Galtway will be notified on February 14th, 2024 and contracted for twelve (12) months, currently set for March 1st, 2024, to February 28th, 2025.
