Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is a Hotbed of Creativity

posted by: Stonebridge Hotel on: February 27, 2015 06:16:02 PM
Grande Prairie is home to some of the most interesting innovative and cultural artifacts in Alberta. The town is often overlooked in the artistic sphere but it surprisingly is a creative hotbed of exploration, art, and invention.
 

 
Which is why the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is an exciting place to visit because of its unique collection and artistic space.
 
The gallery recently has expanded. In 2007 their previous location, the historic 1929 Grande Prairie High School partially collapsed but was restored and then connected to the Montrose Cultural Centre. Together they make up the new and improved Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.
 
The art gallery is one of the biggest in Alberta and they work to preserve and share beautiful and inspiring art with residents and visitors of the town. They offer free admission, programs, tours and activities for all.  They usually have 12 art exhibitions per year and welcome over 10,000 visitors annually.
 
They have artwork from local, national and international artists. Their goal is to showcase the diversity that can be found in art through different mediums. The gallery also has opened up an area in their gallery called “The Green Space.” This space offers hand on activities during gallery hours so visitors can interact with art that will hopefully inspire and cause reflection.
 

 
Right now they have multiple exhibitions underway. One to note is Grande Prairie born, Jeremy Hof’s who has an exhibition called “Morass of the Arduous.” In his show he combines painting and sculpture to create a historical perspective that poses questions about traditional artistic expressions and how contemporary art makes way for new meanings.
