2017 / 2018 Season

The Firehall Gallery is a unique brick faced gallery space located in the lobby of the Firehall Arts Centre. The Centre is celebrating its 35nd season as a producer and presenter of contemporary dance, theatre and multidisciplinary work. The Firehall has an active schedule of performances and festivals and the Lobby Gallery provides exposure to a diverse audience. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.


The Firehall is currently inviting proposals from emerging and established artists for exhibitions during the 2017/2018 Season. We are particularly interested in work that engages with contemporary issues of diversity and community. We welcome all 2-dimensional work, but unfortunately we cannot exhibit video works at this time. Exhibitions will run approximately 6 weeks.

Firehall will take 25% commission from sales.
