Three regional galleries and one arts organization coordinate the program for the AFA:
- Northwest Alberta: The Art Gallery of 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
