Travelling Exhibition Program

The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibition program since 1981. The mandate of the AFA Travelling Exhibition Program is to provide every Albertan with the opportunity to enjoy visual art exhibitions in their community.

Three regional galleries and one arts organization coordinate the program for the AFA:

  • Northwest Alberta: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, Grande Prairie
  • Northeast and North Central Alberta: The Art Gallery of Alberta
  • Southwest Alberta: The Alberta Society of Artists
  • Southeast Alberta: Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre

There are 10 BOOKING PERIODS per year allowing each venue to enjoy the exhibit for a full 4 weeks. There is now a week in between periods for travel. Details can be found on page 19 of the booking catalogue.


About TREX

Each year more than 300,000 Albertans enjoy nearly 100 exhibitions in communities ranging from High Level in the north to Milk River in the south and virtually everywhere in between. The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program also offers educational support material to help educators integrate the visual arts into the school curriculum.

A major part of the program assists in making the AFA’s extensive art collection available to Albertans. This growing art collection consists of over 8,500 artworks showcasing the creative talents of more than 1,700 artists. As the only provincial art collection in Alberta, the AFA collection reflects the development of the vibrant visual arts community in the province and has become an important cultural legacy for all Albertans.

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie’s involvement with the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program dates back to its inception. The Gallery values its role in the promotion of art in communities throughout Northwestern Alberta. Residents of the region served by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie have experienced, through the Travelling Exhibition Program, new opportunities to view and learn about art.
