Drawn to the Horizon

The mandate of the Art Gallery of Northumberland is to promote and provide access to art and related programs as a community gallery for the enjoyment and education of the people of Northumberland County.

We exist to serve all of Northumberland County as a public gallery. We present intellectually stimulating exhibitions and programming, as well as maintain a permanent collection of visual arts. Along with exhibitions we fulfill our mandate through educational activities which encourage active dialogue between the Gallery audience and the visual arts; including lectures, films, workshops, artist talks and tours.

Student educational programs are provided both in the Gallery and in the classroom. Special programs for secondary school students have been developed in collaboration with community schools and teachers.

The AGN is Northumberland County’s largest collecting public art gallery, exhibiting historical, modern and contemporary Canadian art and is a vital cultural hub for artists.

On View

The AGN presents intellectually stimulating exhibitions that spark conversations, inspire creativity and enlighten the minds of all-ages.

Featuring a year-round program of exhibitions, the AGN is committed to nurturing and promoting Canadian artists, and we strive to exhibit works that advance critical enquiry and community connection to contemporary visual arts. 

Events at a Glance

The AGN hosts a variety of community-involved events throughout the year including exhibition opening receptions, artist talks, artist meet-ups, and fundraising initiatives. 

We also engage with our audiences virtually on various digital platforms. This has been successful for allowing our events to reach a wider audience and they are easily accessible at any time.
