Mezzanine Gallery Exhibit Space

Our Mezzanine Gallery provides artists, craftspeople, curators, and groups with a space to showcase artwork to the public. The PWNHC hosts two six-month temporary exhibits a year that feature art representing the cultures and history of the NWT.

Submissions are evaluated by the Art Selection Committee, which is made up of PWNHC staff and community members.

The PWNHC will pay artists a standard exhibition fee, which is sort of like a minimum wage, as well as cover any shipping expenses.


The application intake is now closed. The next call for applications will be in summer 2025.


  • artists, craftspeople, curators, and groups must be from the NWT.
  • Artists must have previously exhibited their work.
  • 50% of the show’s pieces must be completed before applying.
