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.
Note: AFA will continue to support the TREX program in 2020-21 while being responsive to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to work with our TREX providers to support them through Alberta’s phased relaunch plan as facilities begin to reopen to the public.
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 600,000 visitors enjoy exhibitions in more than 150 venues.
The program also offers educational support material for teachers to encourage visual arts exhibitions into the school curriculum.
