From our Patrons

Thanks to everyone who has supported and keeps supporting KOAC. 

We wouldn’t be here without you.

“The Kiyooka Ohe Arts Center has heart and soul and it comes from the two iconic founders. Katie Ohe and Harry Kiyooka are Calgary Arts royalty who have taught, mentored, curated, wrote, painted and sculpted Calgary’s contemporary art scene. Meeting them is an honour and a memory to be treasured.”

Deborah Herringer

Director, Herringer Kiss Gallery

“My wish is for KOAC to accomplish everything they set out to do for the future of Calgary & culture. Katie and Harry have all the knowledge necessary to provide a home for excellent examples of art.”
