The Pumphouse offers contemporary art exhibits, sometimes by local Niagara region artists. Also classes, lectures and special events.

Interesting artwork displayed in an historic old building situated on a scenic spot. A nice place to spend a few minutes while on your way to or from the Shaw Festival.

Two rooms of art in a heritage building near to the mouth of the Niagara River. Entrance is free (small donation appreciated) with a variety of artists showing their latest works. Beautiful sea scape paintings current show. Open every afternoon during tourist season.

The old pump sits out in the parking lot. It worked a very long time. The art centre has some artist painting on the walls, and also acts as a actual in-use art learning centre.

High quality instruction by working artists provides help and directions for all levels of abilities. Monthly salons feature creative persons whose work will be displayed for the following month. There are many special events... More

I live in St Catharines and we love going to Niagara on The Lake. When my Daughter was younger she took art lessons at the Pump House. They have a beautiful lighthouse and some very nice pieces hanging in the gallery. They are right on the water and there is a cute Gazebo we love taking our lawn chairs and... More
