Junction North Gallery
In the Northern hemisphere, the North Star (or Polaris) is known as the guiding star in a night sky. Located nearest the north celestial pole, Polaris shows us where due north is and has been used historically as a way finder and reference point. Junction North Gallery, inspired by the North Star, is a hub and a reference point in Western Canada that brings together creative projects and emergent ideas from the fields of art, design and environmental studies.
What: Junction Gallery (JN) is a micro sized, pop-up, 'green', touring art & craft gallery and art centre based in Calgary, Ab Canada. It features exhibition and workshop space and a variety of sustainable living options including LED lighting, on-site recycling & composting and solar energy options. Our mission is to tour to local and regional festivals and events and to connect artists making work around energy use, climate change, nature & culture (and more) with local communities. JN features 6-8 group or solo exhibitions of small-scale works per year, each lasting anywhere from one day to four weeks. Many works on exhibition will be offered for sale. Each contemporary art exhibition is created from juried calls for submission and from our own collection of contemporary art.
