The art gallery offers art lessons on saturdays for kids. The gallery itself was a little weird as most of the exhibit was along the walls of a rampy hallway that goes nowhere and you have to double back to get down. The art on display was quite good. Nothing too out there. Some really amazing photographs the time we... More

As other reviewers have noted, kind of small but in a beautiful waterfront location. It was drizzling when I parked, so it provided a welcome diversion. Art that WAS on display was very good. A featured show of a photographer who's worked "On the Labrador" for 20 years was just breathtaking. I bought a small book of his work. It's... More

There are long ramps down to the basement, the walls along the ramps lined with local art, and several small galleries in the basement, again featuring local artists and parts of the permanent collection. We usually... More

I've visited this place several times over several years whenever I'm in Peterborough. They have an interesting display of artwork each time I visit. There's a program promoting private art classes with children and displays some of the highlights, some are amusing to look at. It's great to see art being promoted at an early age.
