August 2020 Updates:

VISAC Gallery facilities & the Community Building we are housed in will not be able to open this summer, but hopefully will in September. We will however be running some art programs outside of the gallery in the Greater Trail Area during July & August.

We keep you updated on these new offerings by way of newsletter, social media, & our website.

TRAIL Window ArtWalk Sept 2 - 30, 2020!



    During Covid times, the Arts community has been pushed to get creative in finding ways to support and present the works of our local Artists. So came the idea of the ‘Trail Window ArtWalk’; paying Artists to create art installations inside downtown Trail business windows so that they may be seen during the month of September. With goals to support and pay artists, celebrate downtown businesses, and offer a way for the public to experience art at their own schedule without going inside a venue.

Join us Sept 2nd 2-7pm outdoors in downtown Trail (w/ Covid protocols respected) to celebrate Trail's new mural & the 1st day of the Window ArtWalk. 
Start out at the new mural site , 1501 Cedar Ave, to get your ArtWalk map, free balloons, coloring books, ArtBoxes for kids and more! Check out the FB Event details here.
