The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibitions (TREX) program since 1981 to provide as many communities as possible across Alberta with the opportunity to see visual art exhibitions. We welcome Northwest Alberta venues of all kinds, including schools, libraries, museums, galleries, health centres, visitor centres, and businesses to book month-long exhibitions for their community using the request form. Exhibition themes are varied to suit every audience, with historic and contemporary artwork in a wide range of media. Each exhibition comes with an interpretive catalogue and educator’s guide that provides exhibition information and creative lesson plans. Plus, the guides are available in a PDF format making exhibition information and lesson plans accessible for Smartboards and easily printable. Exhibitions are designed for ease of handling and may be displayed in different ways depending the type and amount of space available.
Booking catalogues are sent out each year in May. The booking catalogue for 2020 – 2021 and the request form can be found below, in addition to PDFs of the educational guides for all the available exhibitions. Bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis and we recommend that you submit your requests early. TREX exhibition fees remain affordable at $75.00 for each four-week loan period. The TREX Program pays all shipping and insurance costs. To make your request, simply fill out the request form and submit it by fax or email. You are welcome to contact us at any time for assistance or more information at:
