The Maple Ridge Art Gallery

Community art lovers founded the Maple Ridge Art Gallery Society, with its first exhibition in 1982. In April 2003, the Maple Ridge Art Gallery moved into its current complex within the Arts Centre and Theatre (ACT) in the downtown core of Maple Ridge.

The Maple Ridge Art Gallery promotes the visual arts and educates through ongoing exhibitions, educational tours, workshops, artist's talks, art rental programs, and a gallery shop. The Gallery provides a facility for both amateur and professional artists of all ages.
