The 1st ArtWalk of 2019 is May 2, 6–8:30 pm
Explore the venues. Love the art.
For over 15 years, ArtWalk has coloured the core of downtown St. Albert. Indoor venues present different exhibitions and artists each month from May to September. The first Thursday of the month between 6 and 8:30 pm celebrates the start of these exceptional displays and features an outdoor marketplace full of many talented artists, makers and musicians.
This year, ArtWalk St. Albert will feature a special (free) program and paid ArtWalking Tours each month!
Join us in the Perron District this May as we celebrate St. Albert as The Botanical Arts City by collaboratively painting planters inspired by famous art movements. The completed pots will be filled with beautiful flowers and placed outside ArtWalk venues for the duration of the season.
There are 2 ArtWalking Tours each ArtWalk. The cost is $5 per person and tours are limited to a maximum 8 people.

Perennial Plant Swap & Chat
Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 10:30 am– 1:30 pm
What better way to welcome gardening season than with a Saturday morning plant swap and chat with fellow gardeners?
A perennial plant swap is a great way to get new plants for your garden directly from other gardeners and hobnob with fellow green thumbs. Admission? FREE! For each plant you bring, you get one ticket; each ticket will be traded for a plant. Participants are also welcome to donate gently used gardening equipment to be sold at the event. Don’t have any plants to bring? No problem. Leftover plants will be sold at $5 each at the end of the exchange.
10:30–11:30 am: Plant drop off
– Participants drop off their (healthy) plants. All plants should be in individual containers and labelled. Please include botanical and common name, bloom colour, if the plant prefers sun or shade and any other helpful tidbits for its new caretaker on the label.
– For each plant you bring, you receive one ticket for the exchange, please bring as many plants as you wish.
– Gently used gardening equipment is dropped off at this time as well.
11:30 am–12 pm: Chat + Shop garden ornaments and botanical art
– Geek out on plant chats over some lemonade and explore the newly renovated Gallery while we organize plants for the exchange.
12–12:30 pm: PLANT SWAP!

MUGSHOTS–Spring Open House & Fundraiser
Each year, the Art Gallery of St Albert (AGSA) holds a fundraiser to raise much needed funds to support programming and exhibitions. Raise a cup to our newly renovated barrier-free building! Join us for MUGSHOTS! This month-long sale and clay extravaganza runs from June 6–29 and features hands-on programs, professional demonstrations, creativity and silly puns, all with the goal of raising funds and sharing our passion for art with the entire community.
Show and Sale June 6 – 29
Artists have generously donated a variety of mugs and cups to our cause. Patrons and supporters purchase these delightful drinking receptacles for $40 each. A selection of community created mugs are also available. Watch our social media to learn more about the artists and their mugs.
We have concocted a variety of creative programs, get your hands dirty and make-your-own-mug. Programs will be listed on our events page soon. Classes are offered for all ages. Watch out for our ‘Rouges Gallery’ (think paint night – but way better – wand with mugs!).
Are you a pottery pro? Expert behind the (potter’s) wheel? Always wanted to try? Come to the gallery and we’ll have a good old fashioned (pottery) throw down! There will be demos for the clay-curious and opportunities for the experienced to share their talents!
More information coming soon.
