TREX testimonials

What people are saying about the TREX program

Selected comments from 2020 AGA TREX exhibitions

Exhibition: Real Women
Venue: Calmar Public Library

Both the Booking Catalogue and the Interpretive Guide were excellent. Once again we are impressed with the quality of the exhibit and the interpretive guide.

 

Exhibition: In Dreams Awake
Venue: Warburg School Library

The exhibition was excellent and the Interpretive Guide was very useful. It allowed for a non-artistic person, as myself, to present the artwork appropriately tour students.

 

Exhibition: Real Women
Venue: Dow Centennial Centre, Fort Saskatchewan

The Interpretive Guide was very useful. It provided good information for both myself and our gallery docents and helped us engage visitors in conversations more. Those who visited did enjoy the work – it sparked a lot of conversations and feelings too. The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program was very good as usual – we appreciate this program very much!

 

Exhibition: Nitssaakita’paispinnaan: We Are Still in Control
Venue: Concordia University of Edmonton

We all love having the travelling exhibition program hosted in the library. We were able to work out dates for the exhibits that we wanted and it worked out great. The exhibition was very well received. Everyone was very impressed with the quality of the exhibit.

Selected visitor comments:
-I love how colorful the paintings were. Especially the work by Smith Wright. All the art was absolutely beautiful.
-The cracked effect on the paintings is very cool and quill work is fantastic.
-Really liked the same picture with the variations on the theme, very well done and I thought the whole exhibit was very neat.

 

Exhibition: Real Women
Venue: Alice Melnyk Public Library, Two Hills

The booking procedure is great and the Booking Catalogue and Interpretive Guide were both excellent. The Interpretive Guide was very useful, especially on class visits. It helped me to talk about the subjects and the art processes involved. Most visitors found the art media very interesting and many were captured by the stories (the Interpretive Guide was a tremendous help!) Shipping is always convenient and for the past four years has been totally seamless. I love this program and will continue to book for our library. Thank you AGA and Shane.
