The AMS Art Gallery is an opportunity for UBC and non-UBC students to showcase their work with numerous showings including local artists and exhibitions of the visual art department’s class projects.
The Alma Mater Society Art Gallery is a great opportunity for UBC students and non-UBC students to showcase and promote their work. Located on the main floor of the Students’ Union Building in the southwest corner, the space has been an art gallery for more than 20 years.
Opened in 1982 as an on-campus site for students and local artists to exhibit their work, the AMS Art Gallery supports all exhibitions in the field of contemporary art. The gallery provides a venue for UBC’s fine arts program, as well as serving students, researchers, and the public on local and national levels.
In addition to the weekly exhibitions, the gallery also houses its own art collection, started in 1940; it now includes 67 pieces, which provides students and the public with a historical record of growth and change in contemporary Canadian art.
If you are interested in exhibiting your work please contact the Gallery at email@example.com.
