Art from the 2023 heARTburn exhibition

Each February Canmore's community art centre, artsPlace, is home to the heARTburn event, and art exhibition in their Hub Gallery. The art we showcase comes from our community; from artist submissions and creative workshops. We offer art grants to support the creation of the art that goes into the exhibition.

"Creating community through art" - heARTburn's mission.

Our upcoming exhibition will be longer than usual, with art on display from January 4 - February 11, 2024! The exhibition opening event will be Saturday January 13th from 8pm and will include live art, music and performing. Artist applications are now closed.
