  • Great space and gallery. We especially love the children's programs. There usually a small children's exhibit offered on the main floor, which is something that is usually not available at most galleries. They are quick to respond to inquiries and questions. Front desk staff vary in their ability, but overall usually very helpful.
  • You can actually rent original art for decent price (40-60 bucks a month). My employer does this on the occasion. Minimum 3 month rental. Cheaper than buying thr painting and you can always change up to keep your office fresh.
  • The exhibits change regularly enough and are quite varied. If the art itself isn't enough, the design of the building is interesting to observe as well. For a poor student, I especially love the free community nights every month
  • Nice place to go in downtown Edmonton, good place to spend a few hours exploring.
  • Beautiful location! Great art. Reasonable price for families.
