The Grimsby Public Art Gallery is located within the new Library and Art Gallery complex located on Carnegie Lane (formerly Victoria Avenue). The Gallery was established in 1975, as a non-profit organization which operates for the benefit and enrichment of the public. Our immediate audience is the Town of Grimsby and surrounding centres in the Region of Niagara.
The galley’s mandate/mission statement is:
1. To be a public, non-profit gallery, serving the Town of Grimsby and surrounding areas.
2. To be dedicated to the exhibition, preservation, encouragement, and collection of visual art of professional standard.
3. To provide lectures, seminars, workshops, tours, and other forms of public education relating to visual art.
Forging and maintaining connections with the community is of primary importance and they do this through careful selection and presentation of exhibitions and programs. They encourage visual art by maintaining a gallery that is open and welcoming to all visitors and by offering a range of thought provoking art and art related programs for all ages.
