TREX Space 


TREX Space is a public art gallery, project space and headquarters for TREX Southeast — one of the four regional partners responsible for managing the AFA Travelling Exhibition program. In alignment with the TREX program mandate, TREX Space is committed to making Alberta artwork accessible to Albertans. The gallery is dedicated to exhibiting and promoting the work of Albertan artists and is always completely FREE and open for all to enjoy.

Located in the heart of downtown Medicine Hat, TREX Space helps position the city as a leader in championing and celebrating the work of Albertan artists.


JAN 27 – APR 8  👉 Party On! Celebrating 50 years of the AFA Collection 

Party On! Celebrating 50 years of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Collection presents a lively grouping of work by 14 Albertan artists. Each artwork depicts a single moment of shared revelry and interconnectedness; scenes of musical performances, dancing, carnivals, community gatherings and shared food and drink help mark this special occasion. Step into our time machine to celebrate the ages of knees-up, shindigs, hoedowns and classic ding-dongs!
