So much to see here. It was invigorating, inspiring, and interesting! My friend and I spent a few hours and could have easily spent another!! Will definitely go again.

Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to share your review. Our exhibitions all change every few months (which is why one of the spaces was closed during your visit), and this means there's always something new to see. We hope you’ll give us another...More

As director of the Edmonton Art Gallery, Tony Lupino did a very good job curating worthwhile exhibitions. Since getting rid of its distinctive modern brutalist appearance and EAG name the exhibitions are mediocre, with a sprinkling of pieces on tour from Canada's National Art Gallery....More
