2017 marked the end of our 31st year as an established Canmore destination as well as our 1-year anniversary at our new location. Avens Gallery has expanded in every way, and we could not be happier to see what 2018 brings!
Our new space was celebrated the weekend of December 16 and 17, 2017 at Avens Gallery with artists Heather Pant, Rena Bierman, David Zimmerman, Andrew Kiss, Erica Neumann, Michelle Grant, Rachelle Brady, Tom Hjorleifson, Fraser Hine & Branko Marjanovic.
There are not many things more beautiful than celebrating family during the holidays, and we at Avens are lucky enough to have grown with this family of artists and friends to create a hub of creativity, community, and this large presence which illustrates what (we feel) Canmore, Alberta is all about.
2018, you are looking beautiful already!

An art exhibit a half-century in the making has the artist of the hour wondering, “Wow, where did the time go?”
Canmore’s Avens Gallery hosts Celebrating 50 Years – Andrew Kiss: A Life Well Travelled, beginning Friday (Feb. 9) at 5 p.m. and running until Feb. 16.
A master of oil and canvas projects, the Calgary-based artist specializes in documenting outdoor landscapes such as the mountainous Kananaskis Country wild.
“Really, some of it is luck and a lot of it is hard work,” Kiss said, who’s career has spanned five decades.
“It’s been very, very amazing to have a career in the arts this long. The arts have taken me to a lot of different places and it’s been quite a great way to see the world.”
