Edmonton Art Events 

Art Cart

You can also catch the AGA and Edmonton Arts Council Art Cart out at Churchill Square every Wednesday at lunch!

Summer is officially here. Along with the sunny skies and longer days comes a festival season full of events, indoors and out. To help you plan your evenings, weekends and days off, we’ve put together a list of visual arts and art gallery related events happening this summer.  The list below includes summer art walks and local galleries who feature artists in our Art Rental and Sales department. This unique program not only supports local and Alberta artists—who receive remuneration for work sold or rented—but also builds people’s understanding and appreciation of local and Alberta art, affordably.
