Administrative history

Neutral Ground, an artist-run gallery, was founded in 1982. Mandate: 1) Neutral Ground operates as an access centre and outlet for contemporary artists and art events. It is also a centre for the development, investigation, production, presentation and dissemination of art and information about artists and their work. Neutral Ground acts as a laboratory for the research and development of contemporary art. 2) Neutral Ground considers proposals in all disciplines that have significance to the visual arts. Activities include exhibitions, installations, multi-disciplinary art events, performance art, dance, music, media arts and photography. Administrative relationships: Neutral Ground is an independent, non-profit, volunteer based arts organization with charitable status. It receives support from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Canada Council, the City of Regina Arts Commission, Sask Trust, and the Department of Canadian Heritage among others. Neutral Ground also supports its activities with self-generated revenues. Administrative structure: Neutral Ground is controlled by a board of directors who are either practicing artists, art administrators, curators or writers in the Regina community. There are a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve members serving on the board at one time. Board members are elected by vote of the general membership at an annual general meeting for a two-year term. The board is responsible for all policy decisions affecting the gallery. Neutral Ground employs a full-time administrator who is responsible for the management of operations and implementation of all programing including fiscal control, grant writing and exhibition management. The Administrator is supported by a Gallery Assistant and volunteers. Other significant information: Neutral Ground was the first artist run centre in Regina and the third in Saskatchewan. It is part of a national network of more than one hundred artist-run galleries which are unique to Canada. Neutral Ground accepts submissions for exhibitions, performances, screenings, lectures and projects three times a year.
