Christine Klassen Gallery / CKG represents a dynamic group of artists from Canada, the United States and abroad, united by their craft-intensive approach to art-making. We represent artists at all stages in their creative careers, from emerging to established, working in a wide range of media including: painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. Above all, we are passionate about art, and strive to stimulate gallery visitors through consistently innovative projects and exhibitions, which rotate every six weeks.
Established in 2007, CKG relocated to a 4600 square foot mid-century warehouse in the Manchester Industrial area in February 2014 and is now one of Calgary’s largest commercial gallery spaces. The CKG FRAME SHOP soon followed, opening in-house in July 2014 with Master Framer Candace Larsen at the helm, specializing in custom framing and mirrors as well as art restoration and cleaning.
