Mandate & Vision
Since 1931, The Alberta Society of Aritsts has been stimulating growth, inspiration and passion for excellence in Alberta visual arts. Our mandate is to foster and promote the visual arts in Alberta and to endorse the recognition of Alberta artists throughout our province, country and the world.
The Society is a Non-profit, Registered Charity that works with many organizations and cultural groups to provide enhanced support for existing programs in education and exhibition. Members of the Society are juried in by their peers, thereby providing professional recognition to the province’s artist community. At the same time, there is a membership category for Associate members who may participate in many of the events/programs of the Society, some of whom go on to become Juried members. Many of our members have been recognized as among the finest artists the province has produced since our inception in 1931.
Through exhibitions and education programs, the ASA wishes to increase public awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in Alberta.
In addition, the ASA is responsible for the TREX program in South-western Alberta, which provides art exhibitions to communities, schools and libraries throughout its designated region.
