Located inside the Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS) office at the Halifax Seaport, since 2000, the Corridor Gallery is complimented by a historical legacy of Nova Scotia culture, simple yet modern architectural elements and an array of current cultural activity in the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia office. The Corridor Gallery is located at 1113 Marginal Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia and is open Monday through Friday, 9:30am-5pm.
The Corridor Gallery consists of the two walls in the corridor space of the entrance to our offices with track lighting, the front wall in the main courtyard (dark purple) wall and a smaller (grey) wall in the main office area. The measurements are as follows: Corridor walls (two that face each other) measure at 100″ wide x 84″ high and 110″ wide x 84″ high which includes track lighting. The front wall in the main courtyard measures at 72″ wide x 72″ high and the small wall in the main office measures at 36″ wide x 24″ high. Exhibiting Corridor Gallery artists are expected to install and dismantle their own exhibit.
As an organization that advances the visual arts through leadership, education, and communication, we appreciate proposals that are well thought out and organized.
Visual Arts Nova Scotia accepts proposals for the Corridor Gallery on an ongoing basis. Artists selected are granted four weeks to exhibit their work, and are required to set-up and strike the exhibit the first and last week of the slotted month. Materials and tools will be provided if necessary.
