Imperial Theatre Exhibition Committee (ITEC) has brought work from area artists to the patrons of Imperial Theatre and the Saint John arts community since 1994. With the number of live performances at the Theatre, exposure for exhibits is high, focused to an audience knowledgeable in art, as well as newcomers to visual art. During the summer months tourist traffic flows through the exhibition space during guided tours of the facility.
The exhibition space, located in the lobbies of Imperial Theatre, has space for a large collection. Exhibits must be comprised of a minimum of 15 pieces. With medium-sized pieces, (roughly 30” X 30”) more than twenty pieces can be accommodated.
The exhibitions operate on a rotating basis where each exhibit enjoys a term of roughly two months. Additionally, our website has a page dedicated to the ITEC displays, featuring an image of some of the art pieces, facilitating further exposure of the work.
ITEC receives, on an ongoing basis, proposals from artists to display their works. Each proposal is reviewed by ITEC, and considered for display.
