Goals & artistic mission

To present professional contemporary art exhibitions; to encourage those engaged in the practice of contemporary art; to interpret and promote an interest in contemporary art by providing an educational space designed to advance the public’s knowledge of and participation in artistic endeavour and art appreciation; and to acquire, maintain and exhibit a permanent collection of art for the public.

Our Gallery engages a diverse audience in contemporary Canadian visual art, created and presented in a wide variety of media. Our annual exhibition program is at the core of all the activity at the Gallery, directing workshop themes, lectures, school tours and community outreach.
