Galleries at the Arvada Center host a dozen or more fine art exhibitions each year in three distinctive galleries with 10,000 square feet of space. The Arvada Center prides itself on keeping its gallery and museum exhibitions FREE and open to the public seven days a week, something that it has done since inception in 1976.

- – Discovering & Interpreting the West: 20th Century Landscapes By the 20th century most of the West had been settled, and interpreting it took on a new meaning. No longer were artists documenting new geological features, flora and fauna that were nowhere to be seen in the East, they were interpreting the West artistically.
- – Discovering & Interpreting the West: 21st Century Landscapes In the 21st century, the concept of the West and what it means in a rapidly and ever-changing world as well as different art movements and media influence artists depicting landscapes.
