The Experience

The VASA  gallery and artist studios are open to visitors during our regular hours. A new exhibition is curated monthly so there is always new exciting art in the gallery. Most artist studios will be open for viewing as well. Visitors are likely to meet one of our resident artists, as they each work a shift managing the gallery and surrounding artist studios. Resident artists on duty are happy to share their work and discuss their art and artistic practice.

Each year VASA participates in St. Albert's Art Walk and several other community events. Please visit us regularly and during these special events!
