Guide to Archival Holdings /

Our collection has been coming into being as long as our organization has. Holdings include anything relating to The New Gallery that staff saw value in preserving, including ephemera from our programming, internal communications, correspondence between our staff or volunteers and artists, and reference material on artist issues gathered by TNG members since 1975. Visit the evolving finding aids below ︎︎︎ for an idea of what is available.

In 2008, a collection of documentation relating to The New Gallery’s founding, organization, board materials, histories and reports, was deaccessioned to the Glenbow Archive for custody. If you are interested in material pertaining to the founding and early organization of TNG, visit the page for this collection at Alberta On Record.

Our most extensive collection is our artist and exhibition files. These files are continuously updated, with a folder added for every new exhibition. These collections are also in the process of being made fully available online. You can browse those already digitized by artist, year or exhibition location and type by using the links on the search page. If you browse by artist name, you will also find folder numbers corresponding to the physical archival files we hold about that artist. Occasionally, everything in that folder has been digitized, but often, further material is available for perusal in the physical file. If you’d like to browse the contents of these archives, please make an appointment by contacting one of our staff. They will pull the files you are interested in for your visit. Please cite the collection in your research with: [folder number], The New Gallery Archive, The New Gallery, Calgary.
