Three Sisters Gallery
Located on the second floor of Elevation Place, the Three Sisters Gallery is a public gallery established in 2013 by the Town of Canmore Public Art Committee. The Three Sisters Gallery is located in an open, public space, used by a large cross-section of residents and visitors who might not normally go into gallery spaces. The gallery engages the community by presenting a diverse mix of visual art and artists from Canmore and beyond. The goal of the gallery is to offer artists the opportunity to exhibit in a public space and to engage the community by exhibiting new artists, artworks and ideas.
