About


 Salon 44 is Gallery 44’s annual fundraising exhibition in support of our education and exhibition programs. Representing the best in Canadian photography, Salon 44 brings together an incredible collection of over 60 established and emerging artists with works priced for both new and seasoned collectors alike. Salon 44 is co-chaired by Tatum Dooley and Maegan Broadhurst.

Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography is a charitable, non-profit, artist-run centre committed to supporting multi-faceted approaches to photography and lens-based media. Founded in 1979 to establish a supportive environment for the development of artistic practice, Gallery 44’s mandate is to provide a context for meaningful reflection and dialogue on contemporary photography.

Gallery 44 is committed to programs that reflect the continuously changing definition of photography by presenting a wide range of practices that engage timely and critical explorations of the medium. Through exhibitions, public engagement, education programs and production facilities our objective is to explore the artistic, cultural, historic, social and political implications of the image in our ever-expanding visual world. 

Make a difference
All proceeds from the sale of the artworks directly support our charitable mission to support artists through meaningful production, education and exhibition opportunities. 

We are really proud to provide an open space for artists to experiment and take risks, and our approach to programming that encourages us all to look more critically at the world around us.

In particular, our education programs break down existing social and economic barriers for youth from underserved communities. Many of the youth who participate in our education programs come back to us as mentors, which speak to the importance of these programs in providing meaningful opportunities for young people to grow.

Gallery 44 acknowledges that it is situated on stolen land. On the ancestral and traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Huron-Wendat, who are the original owners and custodians of this land that they continue to inhabit today.

Acknowledging the land on which we work and create is an important first step towards truth and reconciliation, however, much more needs to be done by settlers, by our government, and by us as arts practitioners to educate ourselves and others, and to endeavor to end ongoing colonial violence.

During this global pandemic, it is important to acknowledge that Indigenous communities in Canada continue to live under increasingly inequitable conditions.
