This stand-alone art gallery opened in mid-1995. The gallery is a public facility contributing to the cultural life of the campus, the city, the province and beyond. Throughout the year the Gallery hosts a variety of informative and provocative exhibitions which confirm the creative and eclectic aspects of contemporary art. Exhibitions are generated internally or borrowed and draw on work from local, national and international artists, other Canadian art institutions, art organizations and international sources. The gallery attempts to expose the broadest possible spectrum of visual concerns to both the University community and the public at large. It also sponsors visiting speakers as well as occasional symposia.
