Grand Opening – Sept 28-29

The board and staff of the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie wish to invite you to join us for the grand opening of the newly restored building! Our grand opening will be a 2-day event! The Community Block Party on Friday and the Family Festival on Saturday. Both events are free and open to the public.

The gallery’s previous home in the historic 1929 Grande Prairie High School building partially collapsed in 2007 and has been under construction for the past two years. The building has been fully restored and we’re happy to welcome visitors to explore the new space and view four art exhibitions.
