Art Gallery Of Sudbury

The Art Gallery of Sudbury was established in 1967 as a Centennial project of the Sudbury and District Chamber of Commerce. Originally operating as the Laurentian University Museum and Art Centre, the gallery was renamed in 1997. Housed in a turn of the century mansion, the former residence of lumber baron William Joseph Bell, the gallery has a unique architectural appeal. Local history and contemporary works of art come together in the lush surroundings of the Gallery grounds. Our exciting exhibitions, lecture series, art classes and special events makes the gallery a gathering place for the local community. While the close proximity to Bell Park, Ramsey Lake and the downtown core make the Art Gallery of Sudbury a must see for any visitor.
The Art Gallery is open to the public year round.
The gallery, comprising two main display spaces, generates exhibitions that showcase the work of local, national and international artists. Shows change an average of 10 times per year and are very well attended. The exhibition is launched with an opening reception designed to provide the public a first chance to see new exhibitions in a social and comfortable atmosphere. In many cases, the artist is present and available to meet guests. Examining diverse themes and showcasing a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, video and the internet, exhibitions are always thought provoking.
