Each year, members of the Art Dealers Association of Canada (ADAC) organize a gallery hop where attendees can enjoy special programming at their local commercial art galleries. This year is no exception: nine different galleries in Calgary have coordinated talks by artists, curators and guests at different times throughout the day. They have specifically timed the programming so that guests can plan to see each and every special event throughout the day.

Below are the times, locations and programming details for what to expect on the 2019 ADAC Calgary Gallery Hop. The motto for this year’s hop is “Trust the Experts” — accordingly, these descriptions have been left minimal. You’ll have to show up to learn more!
