About Membership

Membership is open to everyone but becoming a member is a step-by-step process. Gallery 44 is committed to building a sustainable and supportive environment for the advancement of contemporary photographic practice. Following our carefully developed membership procedure is important to realizing this goal.

Gallery 44 is a small organization; members are expected to use the facilities independently. Gallery 44 offers several services to support our members in their artistic development, including one-on-one workshops and portfolio reviews.

Members shape the Gallery 44 community. We ask members to volunteer at various activities and to attend openings, public programs, and events. Getting involved in different levels of the organization offers members an opportunity to strengthen our organization and to belong to a larger arts community in Toronto and beyond.
