Reaching Out? Here’s How!

1. When should I make contact?

We generally assign writers a month before exhibitions open, but sometimes we slot in stories even earlier. So let us know about your best shows well before they open. 

2. What do you need to know about exhibitions?

• The names of artists, unless it’s a big group show.

• Opening and closing dates.

• The show’s title.

• A brief description explaining the premise of the show.

• Short bios of the artists and links to their websites.

3. What’s the best format for sending information?

Please send information in the main body of an email or as an attached Word document so we can easily cut and paste. We don’t have time to retype information from other formats.

4. How can we improve the odds for coverage?

Provide a great image! Galleries West Digital is navigated visually so a strong image of interesting work grabs our attention.

5. What are the image requirements?

We prefer jpegs at least 630 (h) x 1,000 (w) pixels, which usually means a file of about 1 MB. Our standard captions are: artist’s name, title of work, year, medium, size in Imperial or duration, and any credits. When you provide a list of works, please make it clear which caption goes with each image. Dropbox or WeTransfer to editor@gallerieswest.ca works well for us. Large images sent by email sometimes go astray.

6. Why do you say no?

We get a lot of requests for coverage and can’t say yes to everything. If we’ve just done a story about the artist – or covered a similar show – we might choose something else. We also try to share coverage among galleries and geographic regions. Sometimes finding a writer, especially in remote areas, can be difficult. We also need to be confident that we’ll get great images to illustrate the story.
