Art lovers have plenty of choice at Edmonton’s newly expanded Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA), including new exhibitions of the work of Edgar Degas and Francisco Goya.

Edgar Degas: Figures in Motion explores the artist’s innovative compositions, skillful drawing and perceptive analysis of movement.

The Goya exhibit features the artist’s infamous print suites: Los Caprichos (1799) and The Disasters of War (1810-1820).

Ideal for incentive group activities, both exhibitions continue until May 30.

Launched in late January, the remodeled 85,000-sq.-ft. gallery, designed by Los Angeles architect Randall Stout, features three floors of exhibition space that will showcase historical and contemporary Canadian and international art.

The new AGA also includes a fully outfitted theatre; a ‘floating’ room, the Borealis Lounge; fine-dining restaurant, Zinc; L1 Espresso Bar and third-floor Terrace Café.
