EDMONTON, AB.- Albertans will continue to enjoy Canada’s national art treasures for another three (3) years. The Art Gallery of Alberta, along with the National Gallery of Canada (NGC), announced today their partnership has been renewed for 2013-2015.

Known as The National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta, or NGC@AGA, this exciting initiative will continue to allow AGA Members and visitors to enjoy presentations of work by prominent Canadian and international artists—from contemporary art in all media to old masters.

“The National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta is a special program that provides the AGA with the unique opportunity to work with National Gallery staff on the development and presentation of new, special exhibitions from the National Gallery of Canada’s incredible collections. We are proud of this ongoing museum partnership which gives local audiences opportunities to look at our world from different perspectives and stimulates them to actively engage with visual art and culture,” says Catherine Crowston, AGA Executive Director / Chief Curator.

“We are thrilled to continue this very useful relationship with our colleagues in Edmonton. Although our collections and services are present in many communities throughout Alberta, the opportunity to share the AGA’s audience in this more focused way helps us intensify our service to the province. The success of our first three years speaks for itself and explains our enthusiasm for renewing this partnership. Indeed, it has since spawned similar agreements with galleries in Toronto and Winnipeg,” adds NGC Director and CEO, Marc Mayer.

The National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta program will continue to receive valuable support from Capital Power through the Capital Powered Art initiative.

This fall, there are two National Galley of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta exhibitions: Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque (September 15) and Beautiful Monsters: Beasts and Fantastic Creature in Early European Prints (October 13).
