Visual Art

GALLERIES

curator: Steven Teeuwsen

The four Visual Art Galleries host bold and diverse artwork from 19 emerging artists! Their work is on display for the duration of the festival. The mural and three of the galleries are within walking distance from each other and the last is the Art Gallery of Alberta, so pick-up the audio tour and go exploring!

OPENING RECEPTIONS

Tour the galleries, hear the artists speak about their work, and have a snack along the way! Join us for the gallery openings!

VISUAL ART AUDIO TOUR

Wanna get some of the visual art in your ear holes as you wander the galleries? Drop by The Roxy on Gateway Theatre and we will toss you a classic iPod to listen to at each venue where you can hear from the artists themselves as you view their work. Collateral is required to take an iPod out of the venue.

The Nextfest Art Audio Tours are produced by What It Is Podcast
