We’re Coming Home!

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is coming home! The construction in our main gallery space was completed this week and we’re having the first exhibition in that space in 14 months. Join us this Friday at 7:00pm for the opening reception of John Kissick: A Nervous Decade. Although we’ve enjoyed bringing you 11 art exhibitions held within the available gallery space and within the Montrose Cultural Centre, we’re happy to welcome the public back to our largest exhibition space.

Beginning September 7, 2010, the construction project required the gallery’s art exhibitions to be temporarily interrupted with the closure of the largest exhibition space. On September 2, 2011 the construction project required the gallery to close completely while the exhibition and reception areas were completed, including new flooring throughout. The gallery staff set up temporary offices at Centre 2000 as guests of the Grande Prairie Museum and Heritage Discovery Centre.

“Both the City of Grande Prairie and the Heritage Discovery Centre have been very kind to us and we thank them for their generosity,” says Robert Steven, Executive Director and Curator of the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.

The construction to the restored Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, west of the Montrose Cultural Centre continues and the completed gallery is scheduled to open in spring 2012.
