+15 Galleries (located on the west end on the +15 walkway) Arts Commons is proud to facilitate local artist-run organizations to use these display windows as exhibition spaces since the early 1990’s. These artist-run organizations provide exhibition opportunities for emerging and professional artists. These display windows are curated by the artist-run organizations.
The +15 pedestrian network is a system of above-ground walkways connecting commercial and public buildings in Calgary's downtown core. A series of display windows in the +15 walkway in Arts Commons, located at 205 8 Avenue SE, is used as exhibition spaces by local arts organizations. The New Gallery, TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary, Stride Gallery, Alberta Printmakers, The Marion Nicoll Gallery, The University of Calgary Fine Arts Program, The Alberta Craft Coalition, and Untitled Art Society program these spaces throughout the year. +15 Window exhibitions are in place for a period of two months and are viewable during Arts Commons’ regular building hours.These exhibition spaces are open to all emerging and pre-emerging artists with an emphasis on showcasing site-specific installations or small bodies of work. The Untitled Contemporary Art +15 Window promotes artistic excellence in emerging contemporary art and emphasizes the increased outreach opportunities of this highly visible space. Receptions are held in conjunction with other artist-run centres with drinks to follow at a local pub. Artist fees are paid for +15 Window exhibitions.
