On the cusp of the development of the new Agri-Food Hub and Trade Centre, Lethbridge & District Exhibition is excited to create a lasting connection with the art community in Lethbridge & region. This year, we’ve created La Galleria, our designated art gallery, wine bar, buskers’ stage, and art auction area.

Lethbridge & District Exhibition is seeking dynamic artists to showcase their work at the 125th anniversary of Whoop-Up Days, an annual festival taking place in sunny Southern Alberta. The event takes place from August 23-27, 2022, with a dedicated gallery space, La Galleria, being offered daily. La Galleria is a 34,000 square foot industrial-style space with an art gallery, dining experience, and small buskers' stage. We welcome 2D (board, canvas, paper, or photography), 3D (functional or sculptural art), and digital art.  

We encourage artists of all backgrounds to apply and ask that you read the full description for each call to identify which opportunity is best suited for you.

Deadline for submissions is July 15th.
