The Gallery

0 Years of Culture

0 Works of Art

The MacKenzie Art Gallery is reinventing the role of the public art gallery, using art and experiences to shed new light on the world. With a permanent collection that spans 5,000 years and nearly 5,000 works of art, we encompass both the University of Regina’s vast collection and one of Canada’s largest collections of Indigenous art, the Kamplemacher Collection. Through art, education, and immersive programming, we bring fresh perspectives that transform how people experience history, themselves and each other.

The diversity of the MacKenzie collection continually offers fresh perspectives, bringing people together to re-examine what they thought they knew. Through exhibitions, education, performance, workshops, and more, we are transforming how people throughout Saskatchewan experience the world, including relationships to Indigenous peoples, newcomers, and cultures from around the globe.
