Art Gallery of Regina
Acquaintance - by Andrew Salgado - October 2013
The Art Gallery of Regina is a non-profit public gallery which showcases contemporary art with a focus on Saskatchewan artists. In addition to the art exhibitions, the AGR offers an extensive public education program, including lectures, seminars, workshops, and demonstrations.
The AGR first opened as a satellite of the MacKenzie Art Gallery in 1974. Originally called the Rosemont Art Gallery, the gallery was initiated as a location to support more local and regional programming. In 1976, control of the gallery was transferred to an independent non-profit organization, and in 2005 the name was changes to the Art Gallery of Regina.
