The Fridge Door Gallery is McGill’s original student-run art gallery. Our mission is to exhibit, promote, and encourage the production of student art. Founded by a group of Art History students in 2007, the Fridge Door team organizes one exhibition per semester, drawing much deserved attention to the artistic achievements of McGill’s student artists.
In the absence of a Fine Arts program, The Fridge Door Gallery is a unique and valuable addition to the McGill student experience. The gallery aims at providing the McGill campus with a creative arena, where students from any faculty may to show their creative work, and where the student body at large has a chance to view works made by their peers and engage in discussion about visual art. We also aim to help boost artist careers by forming a supportive sales network with peers and enthusiasts at no commission cost.
The gallery also provides Art History students with the valuable opportunity to apply critical skills they have acquired in the classroom in practice, and to gain curatorial and business skills through the exhibition planning process. The Fridge Door Gallery team is composed of an executive committee of 9 members and active volunteers who together curate, organize, and mount the exhibitions, and an eight member editorial board creating content for this website.
