The Next Generation /

The New Gallery (TNG) is pleased to announce The Next Generation. The Next Generation is a new umbrella of programming at TNG designed for emerging artists. Our staff members, all of whom are emerging artists themselves, will be curating and programming different events, artworks, tools, and more, designed at developing stronger community spaces and resources for emerging artists. Programming under this umbrella will be rolling out over the next few months, so stay tuned for updates!

Emerging Artist Studio Visits

As part of this programming, TNG is seeking to expand our network of emerging artists in order to better understand how to meaningfully create opportunities and programming centring emerging/ early career artists. We are able to pay emerging artists $50 for a 45 minute studio visit with TNG’s team. If you’re a self-defined early-career artist and you’re interested in meeting with the team, fill out the google form below, and someone will be in touch to schedule!

Our team is mindful of the fact that artists begin their practice from many different circumstances - emerging/ early-career is a definition that is flexible, and personal to you. If you feel like you'd benefit from the resources and programming we are offering, and want to create a connection with the team and introduce yourself, please reach out!

If you have any thoughts, questions or concerns, please email

Thank you to all who applied for studio visits! We are temporarily closing the call for applicants while we meet with current applicants!
