Cambridge Galleries

Cambridge Galleries are a part of the Cambridge Public Library system with art exhibition spaces at Queen's Square, Preston and the new Design at Riverside location. Together, the three galleries host approximately 23 exhibitions per year reflecting a range of local, regional, provincial, national and international developments in contemporary and historical visual art.
An extensive program of art education is offered at five Cambridge locations, including studio art courses for children, teenagers and adults. Our Printmaking Studio within the University of Waterloo School of Architecture provides opportunities for artists, students and members of the community to develop skills in this lively medium.
Lectures, concerts and bus trips are offered throughout the year. Cineseries is an ongoing program of alternative film, organized in conjunction with the Toronto International Film Festival. The Queen's Square location is home to a growing collection of contemporary Canadian fibre art as well as being the site of the Public Art Program, an annual outdoor installation of a contemporary work of art.

Permanent Collection

Cambridge Galleries' policy of collecting contemporary Canadian fibre art was established in 1986 to reflect upon Cambridge's historical connection to the textile industry as well as looking to the future, to new and innovative concepts in art-making. Acquisitions have been supported by annual fundraising events, acquisition grants from the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Culture and Recreation, the Walter and Duncan Gordon Charitable Foundation, and private and corporate donations. Works from the collection are installed throughout the Queen's Square location, where they can be enjoyed by the public.
