Mount Rose Lookout Gallery – now accepting submissions


Announcing a potential new art gallery atop Mount Rose in the Armstrong-Spallumcheen region of British Columbia. Beginning January 2012, this public art space will non-profitly manifest a new exhibit each month until December, when the lookout will return to the black-capped chickadees, sleepy cinnamon bears and chocolate lilies.

Submissions: The gallery seeks proposals for works in any medium for select months, including February to May and September to November. There is no electrical power anywhere near the gallery. Works will be fully exposed to weather conditions, potentially touch wildlife and likely suffer vandalism. We are unable to compensate artists with anything other than smiles and respect. We especially encourage site-specific exhibitions; here is one short vid and another that show parts of the potential gallery space. Please send proposals to kevin mcpherson eckhoff and the local gang of ne’er-do-well poet/artists via

Directions: To visit Mount Rose Lookout Gallery, follow Wood Avenue until it merges to the right into Salmon Valley Road and head west out of Armstrong. After 3 ninety degree turns, take a left at Hallam Road, which winds up towards Chamberlain Road, another left. The parking lot for the Rose Swanson Hiking trails is roughly 2km up Chamberlain Road. The gallery can be accessed from either the upper or lower trail; both routes measure about 2500m with an elevation gain of approximately 300m. There is a garbage can at the parking lot and an outhouse at the lookout. It is usually a good idea to bring water and to wear bear bells in the summer and to don snowshoes in the winter.
