Voices of the Valley brings together The Reach and MSA Museum’s rich material culture collections, photographs, archival material and collections of oral histories. It is designed using Historical Thinking concepts which allow visitors to view multiple perspectives and primary source evidence to identify the historical significance of the events and develop an appreciation for the decisions made in the past. Through a more personal understanding of Abbotsford history, students will gain valuable insight into their place within this history. Voices of the Valley provides a crucial educational resource for local history and social studies students, as well as adults.
The Reach Gallery Museum has been exhibiting the work of national and regional Canadian artists since 2008. As well, The Reach Gallery Museum maintains a comprehensive publications program alongside our exhibitions program to encourage critical engagement with our exhibitions.+
The curatorial program at The Reach Gallery Museum is carefully considered to bring the best in visual arts and historical research to our audience. Exhibition programming is primarily invitational. Exhibitions presented at The Reach are confirmed 18 to 24 months in advance and are generally developed by the Curator of Art & Visual Culture, Curator of Historical Collections, Guest Curators and Curatorial Interns (where appropriate).
The Reach welcomes informational packages from artists.+
