MacKenzie Art Gallery
The MacKenzie Art Gallery's policies support a mandate for exhibiting, collecting, preserving, researching and interpreting original works of art. The objective is to be both excellent and accessible with a focus on art of significance, reflecting the art history and contemporary practices of local, regional, national and international artists.
While historical art is to be addressed, the main focus continues to be contemporary art in all its diverse forms. Contemporary exhibitions engage a variety of critical interests and are complemented by lectures, film/video, and panel discussions designed to encourage dialogue within the community. The acquisitions program of purchases and donations places a major emphasis on selected examples of major international art, a broad sample of Canadian art from across the nation, a representative selection of art from western Canada, and a comprehensive collection of art from Saskatchewan.
The MacKenzie Art Gallery is committed to establishing public programs which make the gallery's exhibitions and collections more accessible to the public and that meet the needs of specific audiences. Gallery Curators and Educators continue to collaborate with other organizations and individuals in the community, and actively promote their programs to the diverse audiences of our community. An active provincial extension program, MacKenzie Outreach, reaches smaller communities throughout Saskatchewan.
