Since 1986, Canmore’s Avens Gallery has been a beacon for local up-and-coming artists. Their diverse collection represents the work of local artists in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, photography, glass, stone and bronze, with an emphasis on pieces that speak to the spirit of Alberta. It’s the perfect place for visitors to soak up our province’s artistic spirit.
