If you have mobility issues good luck trying to view this gallery. Although all the right ramps and lifts are in place no one will point them out to you or operate them for you (They are not ones that can be operated by one self.) After enduring many sets of stairs you may finally spy the handicap entrance/exit where... More

This site is a treasure. Even though much of the permanent collection was still on tour during our visit here on 13 Jun, the pieces that remained were spectacular. A wide range of themes and genres is represented. The building itself is nicely arranged. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

If you ever happen to be in Fredericton and are looking to burn a few hours away or get out of the rain be sure to stop in at the Beaverbrook art gallery. It has an amazing collection but the must see is the Dali's 'Santiago El Grande' truly amazing.

A small but worthwhile collection - much from the collection of the newspaper magnate Lord Beaverbrook. His Lordship acquired all sorts of works from Picasso to Sutherland - and, surprisingly, a Lowry we'd never seen before. Nicely laid out and well worth an hour or so. It was good to see local school parties being introduced to the pictures by... More

Enjoyed the special exhibits of several Maritime artists I had not known about. Neree de Grace, an Acadian artist, is spectacular find; just like Chagall. Was impressed by all I saw even though I have AGO & McMichael memberships.
