Travelling Exhibitions

Travelling Exhibitions

The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibition program (TREX) since 1981. The mandate of TREX is to provide every Albertan with the opportunity to enjoy visual art exhibitions in their community. Each year more than 300,000 Albertans enjoy nearly 100 exhibitions in communities ranging from High Level in the north to Milk River in the south and virtually everywhere in between. The Program also offers educational support material to help educators integrate the visual arts into the school curriculum.



Our Google TREX map is updated regularly to show where current exhibits are touring in Alberta. Please contact the venue for exhibition hours and visit the respective regional partner website for further exhibition information.

Use the TREX map’s zoom feature to focus on the community closest to you!

Three regional galleries and one arts organization coordinate the program for the AFA:

  • Northwest Alberta: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, Grande Prairie
  • Northeast and North Central Alberta: The Art Gallery of Alberta
  • Southwest Alberta: The Alberta Society of Artists
  • Southeast Alberta: Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre

There are 10 BOOKING PERIODS per year allowing each venue to enjoy an exhibit for a full 4 weeks. Details can be found on page 19 of the booking catalogue.
