Kiwanis Art Gallery

At this time, the Red Deer Public Library is closed due to COVID-19 and thus our Kiwanis Gallery is inaccessible. In order to support artists and continue our exhibitions as scheduled as much as possible, we have created a virtual gallery (see tab on the right side of this screen) for the opportunity to showcase the works of art during this period of closure.

The Kiwanis Gallery hosts exhibits from artists around the province of Alberta.

The Red Deer Arts Council is responsible for programming this wonderful, unique gallery space. Eclectic rotating exhibits features artists working in all media and subject matter, from landscapes to abstracts to 3D. Artists range from emerging to professional and come from around the province. Two highly popular school exhibits are hosted in the spring and include five middle schools and two high schools. The gallery hosts opening receptions on the first Friday of every month. (View the 'First Friday Red Deer' tab for more information.)

Red Deer Arts Council operates the Kiwanis Gallery in partnership with the Red Deer Public Library. The exhibits in the Red Deer Public Library Kiwanis Art Gallery are scheduled, organized and maintained by the Visual Arts Committee of the Red Deer Arts Council. You can reach the Library at

The Red Deer Arts Council Kiwanis Gallery is located in the downtown branch of the Red Deer Public Library at 4818 49 Street, Red Deer, AB.

  • Monday – Thursday: 9 am to 8 pm
  • Friday and Saturday: 9 am to 5 pm
  • Sundays: 10 am to 3 pm

The talented visual art students from Hunting Hills and École Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High Schools have persevered in their creativity throughout the school year, even through the COVID-19 pandemic and we are here to celebrate their achievements by sharing their works online, even if we can’t do so in the Kiwanis Gallery space. Art posts will take place daily in June, while the multi-disciplinary #OnlineArtsFestival pauses for this special feature.
