Best Art Gallery: Esker Foundation


Located on the top floor of the Atlantic Avenue Art Block in trendy Inglewood, the privately-funded non-commercial Esker Foundation programs three exhibition changes per year. The foundation’s focus is 100 percent on contemporary art. It set the tone early by showcasing the work of Alberta’s emerging artists – recent grads of the province’s major institutions. During your visit, be sure to check out The Nest and The Lantern (the latter offers a sweeping view of downtown!). After enjoying the main gallery, head down to street level to see what’s happening in the ever-changing Project Space.
