Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX)


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:

New TREX Exhibitions for 2015/2016 from the AGA

…rattled to the bone This exhibition, which begins travelling in September, 2015, features the work of five contemporary Alberta artists who, through visual art and exposition, ponder the nature of beauty in the 21st century.

Echo Chamber This exhibition, which begins travelling in September, 2015, features the work of three contemporary Alberta artists investigating memory and personal narrative and engages viewers in the creation of new perceptions of reality and experience.

Imprints Featuring works drawn from the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts this exhibition, which begins travelling in August, 2015, examines the history of printmaking in Alberta and recognizes individuals who, through their artistic efforts and administrative/educational roles, are responsible for the stature of print media on the provincial, national and international art stages.

The AGA TREX exhibition Dreaming with my ‘Great Mother’…., sponsored by Syncrude Canada Ltd., begins travelling TREX Region 2 in December of 2015. This exhibition, organized by and featuring the work of First Nations artists Camille Louis, Heather Shillinglaw and Carla Rae Taylor, explores the personal journeys of these artists as they seek and receive knowledge from their grandmothers and Great Mother Earth.
