Artist Opportunities

Area Artist Database

The Pembina Hills Arts Council is excited to begin hosting an Area Artist Database through our website. The purpose of the database will be to connect Pembina Hills area artists with each other, other artists, and the public. If you would like to be considered for inclusion, please contact PHAC with your name, location, medium(s), phone, email, and website or other social media information. With enough interest, we expect this free service to be running later this year!


Keep an eye out for information about these and other opportunities through our newsletter or Facebook!

    • Summer season –  Pembina Threshermen’s Museum  2018 ‘Artists Day’  –  June 10, July 8, Aug 19, Sept 9 (1 – 5 pm)  You can’t look anywhere at the museum without seeing a new perspective of history or a ‘photo op’ … and even then, two people looking at the very same thing can capture entirely different views of it.  So come anytime between 1 – 5 pm to relax and explore all the little ‘nooks & crannys’ of “Life in the Past Lane” at the Museum with YOUR favourite medium!
