PoMoArts is run by the Port Moody Arts Centre Society, a not-for-profit community arts organization mandated to develop, promote, and celebrate the visual, performing, and literary arts in Port Moody, BC. PoMoArts provides more than 300 art programs and music lessons along with a schedule of eight exhibitions in three gallery spaces each year. The main floor of this heritage building is mainly devoted to the gallery. It is open 7 days a week, except holidays, and there is no charge to view exhibitions.
The Gallery at PoMoArts accepts proposals year-round for both group and solo exhibitions. In the past we have had a wide variety of shows, including but not limited to, painting, photography, clay, metal, glass, mixed media, textile art and wood. Exhibition proposals are reviewed twice a year to evaluate work based on a cohesive theme, non-derivative, and skillful execution of chosen media. Proposals including a participatory element are encouraged.
PoMoArts provides promotional materials and marketing support for exhibitions. This includes printed rack cards and posters, digital materials for website and social media, as well as information in our digital newsletter, in local print and online sources. In addition, we feature exhibitions on the gallery page of the website and on social media channels. Each exhibition also includes wall signage and labels.
Exhibiting artists are eligible to have an Artist Directory profile page on PoMoArts website.
