The AGN’s Permanent Collection at present consists of over 1,000 works of local, regional, national and international significance, predominantly by Canadian artists.
The historical pieces focus on the development of Northumberland County through portraits of noted citizens, landscapes, depicting this area and other related pieces. There is also a collection of 20th century paintings, sculptures and works on paper.
One of the main functions of the AGN, and one to which we are deeply committed, is to be available and accessible as an education resource for the public. Our Permanent Collection as an online resource is a work in progress and we gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario Trillium Community Building Fund. We are currently in the process of digitizing the entire collection and will be updating our website regularly as the work is completed.
