MacKenzie Art Gallery

The MacKenzie Art Gallery is Saskatchewan’s oldest and most compelling public art gallery, offering original exhibitions of works by local national and international artists.

An interactive and creative space, it provides educational programs and free public tours for people of all ages. Spanning over 100,000 square feet, our multi-facility hosts an art conservation lab, the BMO Learning Centre, Enbridge Young Artists Studio, Taylor Automotive Engagement Space, Gallery Shop, Shumiatcher Theatre, and a variety of rental spaces for meetings and events. The MacKenzie's vault is home to its permanent collection of more than 4,500 works by internationally renowned artists such as Picasso, Rodin, and Edvard Munch, as well as an impressive Canadian collection with pieces by Greg Curnoe, Joyce Wieland, Dorothy Knowles, the Regina Five, Joe Fafard, Bob Boyer and many others.

MacKenzie Art Gallery now maintains a separate board governance, site and an expansive mandate and quarters in the T.C. (Tommy) Douglas Building. It features an outdoor sculpture garden with potential for growth through loans, acquisitions and commissions. The MacKenzie is situated in Treaty Four territory, traditional land of the Cree, Saulteaux and Metis, and a home to Dakota, Nakota and Lakota peoples. Located on the edge of the 2300-acre Wascana Centre, the largest urban park in Canada. Wascana Centre (1962) was designed by renowned modernist architect Minoru Yamasaki, designer of the original World Trade Center in New York, and is a living artifact of modernist design heritage.

The MacKenzie Art Gallery receives ongoing funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, Saskatchewan Arts Board, Sask Culture, City of Regina, University of Regina and South Saskatchewan Community Foundation.
