Gallery 1313 is a not-for-profit, charitable artist-run centre exhibiting local, national and international contemporary art. The gallery operates with support from mixed sources of revenue, including memberships, sponsors, donations, fundraising, and gallery rentals for exhibitions and events. The gallery rents its space to artists at special rates and to other exhibition clients as it does not receive operational funding. Artists are welcome to sell their work and keep all proceeds as the gallery does not take any commission on sales. Occasionally Gallery 1313’s programming committee organizes special exhibitions and events. Applicable submission fees for these shows go toward covering administrative and operational costs. Payment of artist fees for these shows depends on project funding and fundraising. Gallery 1313 encourages artists, collectives and curators to seek exhibition assistance funding for their shows and is able to provide advice on how to apply for grants.
To promote creativity, learning and growth in the careers of artists, and to inspire passion and appreciation for arts and culture in the public.
