What if I want to have a solo show?
Solo shows are held in TNL Annex, our auxiliary building/workshop space just a few doors west. This is a separate program from the gallery and you do not need to be a gallery artist in order to apply for an Annex show. If you are interested in showing a larger body of work, please submit an application for TNL Annex here.

If I am accepted as a Term IV artist, will everything in my application be shown in the gallery?
Not necessarily. If you are accepted, you will receive an initial, general acceptance letter. After that we will contact you to request specific work and follow up with more information. Final curation is at the discretion of TNL creative director.
