This is a quite small gallery. We were pleased with the group of seven pieces as well as other local artists. There was no admission as one of the rooms was closed while a new exhibit was being set up. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into the collection on what has to be a fairly limited... More

We enjoyed the Bondar exhibit and the high-school art too. The latter gave us pause to think. But I loved the photos by Dr. Bondar. The staff was very friendly and the gift shop was fun to browse around and we picked up a few nice cards and specialty buttons - my wife knits and found some buttons that were... More

Exhibits were okay, but could have been more. Place is good to visit if wanting to put in time for a bit while waiting for other things.

We went as it sounded like a great place to see Group of Seven art. We get there and are told there is a "special" Group of Seven exhibit in the first hall that is why the admission is more than stated on the website. We view the "special" exhibit and one other hall and that was the whole gallery.... More

We found out after paying our admission that only one exhibit hall was open. We saw some interesting Inuit art, courtesy of some generous patrons. However, I would have expected to hear/see much more about the Group of Seven who spent so much time in the Algoma area.

The curator gave my students a very clear description of the exhibits and greater insights into art appreciation. Afterwards, everyone completed an activity in the Ken Danby Room that made them feel like accomplished artists. Thank you, Lori

There are always interesting exhibits in the main gallery and they do revolve. The curators are very good at bringing in art that tells a story of the region or of a Canadian nature. Side exhibits are unique and worthwhile. Nice gift shop for people who are from out of town. Definitely worth a visit on a lazy afternoon with... More

The best thing is the visting sculptures. They are very cool. The painting are ehhh. There are some very nice one but the are more truly horrible paintings. I don't mind modern painters but this is abstract art at its worst. If not for the abstract i would give 5 stars. There are some nice water subject photos that I... More
