ABOUT THE MACKENZIE ART GALLERY

The MacKenzie Art Gallery is Saskatchewan’s oldest and largest public art gallery: an immersive centre for engaging with the world through art, with an ongoing focus on Indigenous culture and diversity.

Located in Regina’s Wascana Park, the MacKenzie’s permanent collection contains over 4,500 works of art by such internationally renowned artists as Mary Kelly, Agnes Martin, Anthony McCall, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, and Frank Stella, as well as an impressive Canadian collection with pieces by Shuvinai Ashoona, Bob Boyer, Victor Cicansky, Greg Curnoe, Joe Fafard, the Group of Seven, Dorothy Knowles, William Perehudoff, Edward Poitras, the Regina Five, David Thauberger, Jeff Wall, Joyce Wieland, and many others.

The MacKenzie has developed a national reputation and won numerous awards for its leading-edge contemporary exhibitions and publications. Every year, over 160,000 people visit the MacKenzie’s acclaimed exhibitions and take part in its innovative public programs, which include touring exhibitions, artist talks, lectures, film screenings, and workshops – including collaborations with other cultural and educational organizations throughout the province.

The MacKenzie is the legacy of Norman MacKenzie, a prominent Regina lawyer, art collector, and pioneer patron of the arts in Saskatchewan. Upon his death in 1936, MacKenzie bequeathed his collection of art works, along with an endowment, to what would eventually become the MacKenzie Art Gallery, realizing a long held wish to share his collection with the people of Saskatchewan.
