The city of Edmonton was named the cultural capital of Canada in 2007 and some would argue that the city deserves that title every year due to the strong arts community and sheer number of cultural venues and festivals to be found in Edmonton.
It is not surprising therefore that Edmonton is home to a large number of art galleries, featuring artwork from across Alberta and the rest of Canada.
Many Edmonton galleries are located in the High St (124 St) area, close to downtown, so this is a good place to start browsing. The list below features some exquisite Edmonton galleries, each specializing in a different aspect of Canadian art.
