Who We Are
Motion Gallery Society is a not for profit gallery that provides support to emerging artists, a venue to exhibit art, volunteer opportunities and is part of an arts hub in Sunalta in the West Village of Calgary.
Why We Are Doing This
As a non-profit art gallery our mandate is to mentor, inform and direct new and emerging artists towards attaining a successful presence and career in the world of art. Motion Gallery needs the support of the community and its members to continue to offer programs, training sessions and a venue for emerging artists to showcase their work that would otherwise not be shown in a traditional gallery.
Why You Should Contribute
Motion Gallery needs the support of the community, its members and of people who love and believe in the value of art in our lives. We know that art positively affects everyone and we hope by increasing awareness and access to art through memberships, art classes and exhibitions, we can include you in our group of creators and art appreciators. Each and every contribution to our crowdfunding campaign will be rewarded with a social media shout out, prints from our artists, memberships to the society or paint classes depending on the level of contribution so that you can continue to be involved in our society.
How Much We Need
We are targeting a total fundraising goal of $5,000, which will be used to fund new programs, artist exhibits, classes and ongoing operations of the Gallery.
Please help support the emerging artist community in Calgary by supporting this critical not-for-profit organization!
