Membership matters! Join the Art Gallery of Alberta Society

Why become a member?

Membership supports the AGA and allows us to support the arts in Alberta and help us provide a wide range of exhibitions, education and public programs to everyone.

Did you know?
The Art Gallery of Alberta is a standalone, charitable organization. The support of our members is vital.

More than half our members join to support the AGA or the arts in general.

Join today, benefit all year!

Benefits of AGA membership

National Gallery of Canada
National Gallery of Canada
AGA members enjoy reciprocal admission at galleries and museums across the country, including the National Gallery of Canada.

Reciprocal admission across Canada

All types of AGA memberships grant reciprocal admission to the following Canadian museums and galleries:

Ultra and philanthropic member levels also receive reciprocal admission to the Art Gallery of Ontario

Unlimited admission

Membership has its privileges. AGA members are always welcome—no need to come on special days or evenings. Plan your visits according to your own schedule. 

I like to bring my three-year old daughter to the AGA but don't want to test her patience. My membership lets me come for short visits with her, and then come back on my own to have a more in-depth experience.

Exclusive opening receptions

Get first peek at new exhibitions and socialize with the artists and curators at our AGA member opening receptions. And every cardholder can bring a guest, too!

This is the best part and the AGA does this so well. It's nice to go to the galleries and look around, but the talks, tours and openings add much in terms of appreciating the work presented—and it's a treat to rub elbows with other art lovers.
