Founded in 1983, the Paul Kuhn Gallery was the first contemporary art gallery in Calgary Alberta, and for several years, the sole venue for experimental art and emerging artists.
Since its inception, the gallery is dedicated to representing the best of innovative, progressive and established Canadian art and artists. Located in a turn of the century concrete warehouse just south of Calgary's downtown core, the gallery offers 3,000 square feet of exhibition space on two levels. The gallery exhibits work in all media: painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and printmaking. The Paul Kuhn Gallery was instrumental in launching the careers of many artists and played a leading role in the expansion of Calgary’s contemporary gallery scene. Beyond the immediate artistic program, the Paul Kuhn Gallery has hosted many community events, notably, book launches, performance art, poetry readings and musical concerts.
