Become a Member

  1. Membership is open to anyone but becoming a member is not an instantaneous process. Gallery 44 is deeply committed to building a sustainable and supportive environment for the advancement of contemporary photographic practice. The process of becoming a member is an important means by which we can realize this goal.  
  2. As a small organization Gallery 44’s members are expected to use the facilities in an independent manner. Gallery 44 offers several supportive services to aid our members in their artistic development, including one-on-one workshops and portfolio reviews, which we encourage our members to attend.
  3. Members form an important part of our community at Gallery 44. As such, we ask members to volunteer to assist with various activities and to attend openings, public programs and events. Becoming involved in different levels of the organization offers members an opportunity to help strengthen our organization and to be part of the larger artistic community of Toronto and beyond.
