    Administrative history

    The Alberta Association of Art Galleries was formed out of the Alberta chapter of the Western Canadian Art Association. The Association incorporated in 1983. Prior to 1983, the Association was known as the Alberta Association of Art Galleries.

    The Association formed to assist with the development of public galleries in Alberta, facilitate cooperation between art galleries and museums throughout Alberta, to act as a spokesperson for its members, and liaise with government. The Association offered four kinds of memberships for individuals and institutions: Full Members, Affiliate Members, Business Members and Friends. A Board of Directors consisting of five elected Directors, and three Members managed the Association.

    After 1988, the Association dissolved.
