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

The Art Gallery of Alberta is pleased to present these new TREX Exhibitions for 2016/2017. For more information on these and other TREX exhibitions please refer to the TREX exhibition schedule.

The Ties that Bind This exhibition, which begins travelling in September, 2016, features the work of four contemporary Alberta artists who, through needle and thread, explore our ties to the past, present and future and to the ‘family’ of man.

Art and Design in the 21st Century Featuring the art and design work of three contemporary Edmonton artists, this exhibition investigates the links and differences between art and design.

Cattle Call Featuring works drawn from the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts this exhibition, which begins travelling in September, 2016, examines the important economic and cultural roles cattle have played in Alberta’s history.

The AGA TREX exhibition Breaking Barriers – The Artist Inside, developed in partnership with the Alberta Department of Justice and sponsored by Syncrude Canada Ltd., begins travelling TREX Region 2 in December of 2016. This exhibition explores the personal journeys of First Nations artists currently involved with provincial correctional services.
