Loved the Art Gallery of Alberta. Amusing architecture designed building. Many different art displayed inside from local artists and artist from other Canadian cities. My wife and I visited the Art Gallery last year

Thoroughly enjoyed spending four hours in this art gallery today. Especially enjoyed the gallery depicting the history of Canada in art and photographs, and the news photography. Beautiful building, relaxing place to enjoy art.

I found the exhibits to be a bit disappointing. The biennial artist exhibit had some interesting pieces and some pretty put there. There was very little of the permanent collection on display though they were setting up one area which wasn't open. The building is...More
