Friends of the AGA

Meet our friends! We have asked some wonderful people from across Alberta to share their love of the AGA Collection through a series of personal anecdotes and memories. Their stories of the artists and artworks they’re passionate about speak to the many ways viewing art can transform our lives. Please make a donation in support of these, and the many other outstanding artists, the AGA is proud to collect and exhibit!
