Thank-you for your interest in Jack’s Gallery, a shared venture of the Just Us! Wolfville
café and the Acadia Cinema Co-op! It is funded in part by Youth Challenge International, a
non-profit organization that involves youth in community-based projects in developing
countries. Honoring this support, we aim not only to provide a vibrant, shared community
space for local artists to display their work, but also to build, empower and energize the
creativity of young artists to share their personal visions and benefit financially from their
efforts. While we do not refuse consideration of any age group, if you are a young artist (aged
15-35) interested in actively participating and contributing to the local and global community,
you are exactly who we are looking for!
We welcome submissions in all mediums. You may submit up to 6 pieces, while
remembering that space is limited and they may not all be exhibited whether you are selected
this time or not. Exhibitions will likely feature a combination of artists and last approximately
two months before changing to a new exhibition. For each new show there will be an Opening
Night to create a sense of shared public space and an ongoing forum for discussion, education,
activism, and visual art appreciation.
