What people are saying about the TREX program

Selected comments from 2018-2019 AGA TREX exhibitions

Exhibition: Beyond ‘the patch’: Stories from Wood Buffalo

Exhibition: Re-Imaging Normal
Venue: CARFAC Alberta

Thank you for curating (with Michelle Lavoie) such an excellent exhibition, both timely and visually encompassing the passages along the way to Re-Imaging Normal.

The selected artists and their works made this exhibition an event not to be missed and provided needed information for visitors to gain a larger perspective on our society and our citizens.

The attendance was superb, as over 60 people were drawn to the lively Panel discussion on opening night. Other successive events (such as the Works opening and art tours) encouraged people to visit more than once and spend some thoughtful time with the works.

As always, the TREX exhibitions have been very well-received and enjoyed by Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC Project Space visitors.

Selected visitor comments:
- Thought-provoking!
- Exciting Examples
- Extraordinary

- Lovely show - Thanks.


Exhibition: Woodlands
Venue: Stuart MacPherson Public Library, Lac La Biche

Both the Booking Catalogue and Interpretive Guide were excellent. The Interpretive Guide was very useful and we appreciated the artist biographies and the sections on First Nations Groups of the Boreal Forest. This particular exhibition was well received by visitors as Lac La Biche and the surrounding area have a high Indigenous population and it was nice to feature Indigenous art works. The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program is excellent! We are very pleased with how well it’s organized and very pleased with the directions provided for packing the displays: easy to understand labels and care instructions. Thank you!


Selected visitor comments:

Exhibition: Re-Imaging Normal
Venue: Chuck McLean Arts Centre, Camrose

Our experience with the AFA Travelling Exhibition Program is Excellent!  I love this program and Shane is amazing.


Selected visitor comments:
-It is very refreshing to see such a beautiful display of art! It promotes thought and acceptance through beautiful works of art and script.
-This exhibit is truly amazing. Changing ‘normal’ through art has been our way since the beginning - pushing lines, making space and adding voices that have traditionally been silent. LOVE THIS!


Exhibition: Cattle Call
Venue: High Park School

I wanted to let you know that with this particular exhibit I have had more comments from parents and staff about how much they love the art that comes from your program. I have even had a handful of people ask if the art was for sale! Anyways, I thought you would like to know that the ‘vibe’ in my library changes because the TREX program is available and I am so very grateful for the opportunity to showcase it for a few weeks. 


Exhibition: Plate Tectonics
Venue: Caslan School Library

The booking was very easy, fast and efficient. Both the Booking Catalogue and Interpretive Guide were excellent. The biographies and the visual learning and hands-on activities in the guide were especially useful. It was the first time for the majority of our Métis students to see any artwork from a gallery. This was a great first time and we look forward to doing this again in the future!
