The AFA's Travelling Exhibition (TREX) program strives to ensure every Albertan is provided with an opportunity to enjoy fully developed exhibitions in schools, libraries, health care centres and smaller rural institutions and galleries throughout the province.
The TREX program assists in making both the AFA's extensive art collection and the work of contemporary Alberta artists available to Albertans.
Four regional organizations now coordinate the program for the Foundation:
- The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie - Northwest Alberta
- Art Gallery of Alberta - Northeast and North Central Alberta
- Alberta Society of Artists - Southwest Alberta
- Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre - Southeast Alberta
These partners offer a wide range of exhibitions to communities from High Level in the north, to Milk River in the south, and virtually everywhere in between. Annually, more than 300,000 visitors enjoy exhibitions in more than 100 communities.
The Alberta Foundation for the Arts is now seeking proposals for partners to deliver provide the Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) services. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2017, 4:00 pm MST. For more information, see our call for proposals on the AFA News feed.
The program also offers educational support material for teachers to encourage visual arts exhibitions into the school curriculum.
Our Google TREX map is updated regularly to show where current exhibits are touring in Alberta. Please contact the venue for exhibition hours and visit the respective regional partner website for further exhibition information.
