DESCRIPTION

From  its  inception as the first gallery in the City of North York in  1977, Glendon Gallery has steadily received the respect of the public and the  professional arts community alike as a vital presence on the Toronto art scene.  Focusing on contemporary art, the Glendon Gallery provides a monthly  exhibition  from  September to  May,  with a mostly educational mission.


The Gallery offers a balanced exhibition programme of historical, modern, and contemporary Canadian and International art. It focuses, in particular, on the presentation and interpretation of emerging Canadian art of merit, with an added interest - consistent with the bilingual identity of Glendon College - in francophone artistic expression.  As a university public art gallery, we serve two communities with equal responsibility.

The selection of the exhibits is assumed by the Advising Committee formed by professional artists and art critics. In addition to this committe, the Glendon Gallery retains the services of a curator whose main task is to assume the gallery's artistic mission, a Coordinator in charge of the exhibit logistic, and finaly a team of technicians responsible for setting up the Gallery exhibits.

The Glendon Gallery is a member of the Ontario Association of Art Galleries and de l’Association des groupes en arts visuels francophones (L’AGAVF).


Première  galerie  d'art  publique  dans la ville de North York, la galerie Glendon  ouvre ses portes sur le campus du Collège universitaire Glendon en 1977.  Elle  se  spécialise dans  l'art contemporain et offre un programme d'expositions mensuelles du mois de septembre jusqu’au mois d’avril.


Fonctionnement
Le  choix  des  expositions  est  assuré par un Conseil consultatif composé d'artistes  professionnels et de théoriciens de l'art. En plus de ce comité de  sélection,  la  galerie s'est adjoint, un commissaire chargé de mener à bien  la mission artistique de la galerie, d'une coordonnatrice responsable de  la logistique des expositions et finalement d'une équipe de techniciens responsables de la mise en galerie des expositions.


La galerie Glendon est membre des associations professionnelles suivantes : Ontario Association of Art Galleries et de l’Association des groupes en arts visuels francophones (L’AGAVF).
