‌The Gallery —


Since 1985, The Gallery has served communities in the Fraser Valley by featuring a stimulating variety of exhibitions by regional, national and international artists. Over the years, UFV and the Visual Arts Department have remained committed to exhibition practices founded on principles of intellectual and artistic freedom, cultural sensitivity, social diversity, and collaborative relations with Indigenous peoples.
Guided by a 2010 pledge to protect artistic freedom--Canadian Association of University Teachers Policy on Academic Freedom and Artistic Expression--The Gallery routinely exhibits work that addresses social issues and contemporary critical concerns. Preference is given to innovative and challenging exhibitions related to program and pedagogical activities of the Visual Arts Department. A valuable learning resource, The Gallery supports and encourages student exhibitions, teaching the complexities of showing art and visual culture.
All exhibitions in The Gallery and in Visual Arts dedicated locations must be approved by The Gallery Advisory Committee. Below are a series of documents that will assist with applying for exhibitions and events in The Gallery.

Multiples / Various Artists

VA 116 Multiples is an annual collaborative project with the unifying theme that examines the space, nooks, and crannies of the gallery and the psyche. The culmination of completed works installed into a unified installation has the objective of simultaneously engaging the audience with a physical, visual, psychological, and sentient experience.

VA 402 Poster Open House

…for all of the art that is about place, very little is of place – made by artists within their own places or with people who live in the scrutinized place, connecting with the history and the environment…Too much art “about place”, then is more about art and the place of art, than about the actual place where artists and viewers find them selves”

                       Lucy Lippard, The Lure of the Local:  Senses of Place in a Multicentred Society
