History

The Rosemont Art Gallery began as a satellite gallery of the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina, Saskatchewan in January 1975. The gallery was an experiment for the purpose of examining the cultural needs of the community situated in the Northwest area of the city and of evaluating the response of the public and artists to a gallery located in a local store front. The Gallery was located in the Rosemont Shopping Plaza.

In September 1976, the Rosemont Art Gallery Society was incorporated. The Society and the MacKenzie Art Gallery successfully lobbied the City of Regina for the first operational grant. By April 1978, the Rosemont Art Gallery Society took over the operation of the gallery. The Society was able to secure funding from the City of Regina, the Saskatchewan Arts Board and the community at large. In 1984, The Rosemont Art Gallery moved from its original location to space within the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre.

Multi-level programming at the Rosemont Art Gallery included exhibitions of local and national artists, as well as workshops for both adults and children featuring weaving, puppetry, photography and printmaking.

In May 2005, the Rosemont Art Gallery was renamed the Art Gallery of Regina upon a resolution passed at the Rosemont Art Gallery Society's Annual General Meeting. The name change reflects the Gallery's greater scope as a community rather than a neighbourhood art gallery. It continues (2005) to operate as an independent art gallery leasing space within the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre. Karen Schoonover is the Art Gallery of Regina's Executive Director.
