PUBLICATIONS

The Southern Alberta Art Gallery maintains an extensive publishing program as a complement to its exhibitions. SAAG produces approximately six to eight exhibition catalogues each year, of which the majority are monographs. A major mailing is undertaken every year to distribute catalogues to over 250 art institutions, independent curators and publishers across Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe. In addition, ABC Art Books Canada regularly orders and distributes the gallery’s publications, a service which is international in scope.
