About the Gallery
As one of the largest art organizations in Alberta, the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie works to preserve, inspire and explore the world of art to share with the community and the region. Located within the Montrose Cultural Centre, we offer free admission, art exhibitions, guided tours, educational programs, and activities for all ages. We are a Class A public art gallery that presents an average of 20 art exhibitions annually and we welcome over 20,000 visitors per year. The Art Gallery also features the popular Carlstrom Family Green Space, an interactive gallery and self-directed studio space where visitors of all ages have the opportunity to enjoy responding to the current exhibitions and themes through free art activities. Since 1975, the community has created an engine for creativity, one that will never cease to expose the minds of this community to the newest, the most innovative, and the most beautiful creations of our society.

Construction at the Montrose Cultural Centre
The City of Grande Prairie continues the construction project to build the South Montrose Concourse. It will bring a green space with trees and benches running parallel to the south side of the Montrose Cultural Centre building.
During construction, visitors to the Montrose Cultural Centre must enter the building through the North entrance from 103 Ave or the underground parkade. The South entrance doors are now closed for the duration of the construction.
