Art and Art History presents Juliana Zalucky on Contemporary Art Galleries

Time 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Location Trafalgar Road Campus, Annie Smith Arts Centre, 1430 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, Ontario, L6H 2L1

Juliana Zalucky: I will talk about running a contemporary art gallery in Toronto, and what I think emerging artists should know about the commercial art market in Canada. Topics under discussion will include: how commercial galleries work; when to seek representation; best practices on approaching a commercial gallery; what to consider when drafting a submission; what to expect when working with a commercial gallery, as well as other opportunities for young artists to present their work. 
 
Zalucky is the director and sole proprietor of Zalucky Contemporary, a Toronto commercial gallery launched in 2015 with a focus on presenting and promoting the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery currently represents a small but expanding roster of artists practicing in an eclectic range of media. In its first years of programming, the gallery appeared on several “Must-See” lists, was reviewed in the press, and was awarded the prestigious Gattuso Prize during the 2016 CONTACT Photography Festival for Lee Henderson’s exhibition Never Letting Us Take Breath. 
 
Zalucky holds a Master in Fine Arts from York University and an Honours BA from the University of Toronto. She has extensive experience working in commercial and not-forprofit galleries, in addition to her ongoing volunteer service on gallery boards and auction committees. For 6 years, Zalucky was Exhibition Coordinator at the Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
