Kiwanis Gallery

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.

Red Deer Arts Council and Red Deer Public Library are pleased to present:

Visual artists share their 2020 visions for new exhibit

which runs from February 19 to April 19, 2020 in the Kiwanis Gallery.

Please note this exhibition has moved online to our 'Virtual Gallery' tab due to the closure of the Red Deer Public Library in response to COVID-19 containment recommendations.

It’s hard not to draw a connection between the year 2020 and vision. For the next Kiwanis Gallery exhibit, the Red Deer Arts Council invited its visual arts members to share their vision for 2020. The theme is open to many interpretations and this tested our members’ imaginations! Wait until you see what direction our members have taken with this idea.

Thirteen artists are represented, with 23 artworks that take very different approaches to the theme. See the results of their explorations, as they sought relationships between visual art and vision, whether literal or metaphorical. This is an exciting exhibition open to myriad possibilities.
