The 2021 Taste of Wetaskiwin event for this year has been postponed until 2022 due to Alberta Covid Restrictions. Maybe next year we can all be back to normal-ish? If you want your money back for the tickets you purchased from our location only, please stop in with your tickets and we will give you your $$$ back. Or alternately they can be honored at the event next year, or consider your purchase as a donation towards the Wetaskiwin Heritage Museum.

We have decided that we will not be carry as many artists works of art as we have in the past. There will be only a handful of artists here with a 3 month display time. Since we have renovated to allow more space for Carters Creations Bakery, we have a smaller space for our own side of things now. Please follow us on Facebook and we will post photographs and other information when it/they become available.

The Wetaskiwin Arts & Music Festival took place on July 31, 2021 at the Ag Grounds and although it was a long weekend here in Alberta, we feel that we are going to call this a success. The turn out was lower than the previous festival, but still not a bad turn out. We had close to 30 artists and 7 musical acts all of which did fairly well given the long weekend.
Next year, we are confident that you will see a new look and lots of changes and a different date. If you want to see a video of the festival, please click here and see what you missed if you weren't there.

Hell yeah, yet another reno is in the works. We have framed and are insulating and finishing our North wall. It gets real cold in the winter time and should help to keep some of this hot summer weather in check as well. What this also means is that we will be drastically reducing the number of artists in our gallery. The plan is to showcase 2-3 artists at a time. Not sure on the duration yet, but we will work that out with the artists themselves.

A couple things will be happening. First of all, we are AGAIN doing some renovations to expand our daughters business within our building. Her business name is Carters Creations Bakery. Business has been expanding real fast for her, so we want to make sure she grows in space to keep up.
Second, we will once again be part of the  Wetaskiwin Arts & Music Festival as a partner and Vendor. Located at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds, there is a lot of room for everyone, so we hope to see you there on July 31, 2021

We have completed the renovations for our matte cutter. We have also brought our glass cutter up from the basement to the same room. Now most of our equipment is on the same floor and is easier to access. Which means a faster turnaround for you. We are still in the learning phase of using the software, but that too is coming along very fast. 

Also, we are having a 25% off sale from April 29 - May 7 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Hard to believe it has been that long already!

We have purchased a computerized matte cutter and are in the process of making a room for it and other machines/tools we have, so we will be closed Mon/Tue March 8,9 2021.

Since the second Covid-19 lockdown (as we call it), the gallery is still open but you need to make an appointment or call prior to coming to our gallery to ensure we can accommodate you at that time. We appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please be safe everyone!
Our store hours now reflect that we are NOT open on Saturdays only during the winter. We will be open on Saturdays again the first weekend in June 2021.


At the Manluk Theatre, they have made some changes to the "Front Room" as you come in. Say good bye to that terrible yellow colour and say hello to a more modern look. Featured (in the photo below) is a new artist feature wall. This month (February 2020), it is Dalcon Visual Arts and the artists we carry. We carefully chose these 3 to promote 3 things in particular. Local, Albertan and Canadian.

We here at Dalcon Visual Arts are donating a large canvas (36"x48") toward the local CHiPS organization. The goal is to have all the kids that are involved there, paint something on this canvas, and when it is completed, the canvas will be raffled off in time for the Wetaskiwin Arts & Music Festival in June. All proceeds will go towards the CHiPS organization. Childrens Indoor Play Society.

The Battle of the Badges is happening again this year, Feb 16 5:00 - 8:00pm, in support of the Special Olympics Wetaskiwin. In this rock em sock em hockey game, the Fire Fighters and the Local Police battle one another for supremacy and bragging rights! All the while helping our local Special Olympics organization. Stay tuned for photographs from the game and tailgate party! Click here for the Facebook information.

The Taste of Wetaskiwin on this past September 27, 2019 was a huge success. 500 tickets were sold (sell out), and the artists, food and beverage vendors all showed in awesome fashion. Wetaskiwin has a lot to offer, but you have to make the effort sometimes to find these things. This event took care of a lot of that for you. Can't wait until next year. Congratulations to the Montgomery Glenns Restaurant for taking top honours as the most popular! If you want to be part of this next year, and yes it will be bigger and better, send us an email or message us on Facebook to see how you can get involved.

Once again this annual event, Free Our Finest, helped raise funds and raise awareness for the Wetaskiwin Special Olympics. Sept 13-15. Every year at the Walmart store, 4 members of protective services, ambulance and the fire department, get arrested and taken atop scaffolding and brave the elements and sleep in tents. They also entertain through out the day and other events happen on site as well. Please show your support by making a donation and every $25.00 donation gets the boys to do the YMCA dance. The first one of the day is free :)

The Truck and Tractor pulls at the Wetaskwin Ag Grounds were the first ever for this newly dedicated track. Wayne Vanouck is a long time puller and has done so much for this sport. Here's a link to some photos of the Saturday event.

Mark your calendars for September 27, 2019 to attend the Taste of Wetaskiwin happening once again this year. There will be several wine, beer and spirits vendors as well as some great food from different restaurants in and around the area. We have partnered with the City of Wetaskiwin, The Wetaskiwin & District Heritage Museum and Super Value Liquor to bring this event to you all. Not to be out done by last years event, we once again will have a few artists on stage completing paintings that will be sold during a live auction through out the night. Each artist will have a couple hours to complete their art and will receive all the monies generated by the auction. As well, each artists will have other pieces of art on display and for sale showing their diversity as artists. Please visit for all the details and prices of admission and more.

We here at Dalcon Visual Arts send our deepest condolences to friends and family of James Gilbert. RIP James, you will be missed by so many.

We are proud to say that we have in our own way, been a supporter of this local hockey team, the Shooting Penguins. We may have been a little biased because our daughter was the coach and our grandson played on it :). If it's for the kids, we're all for it!
