A small but very worthwhile art gallery on the campus of the Confederate College. Exhibit of superb basket weaving and contemporary art by First Nation artists at the time we visited . The gift store is a treasure in itself with reproductions of Norval Morrisseau prints on shirts, umbrellas, mugs ,purses, magnets and key chains. I could have spent a... More

This small art gallery is a tribute to its founders. The gift shop is tastefully done and the public room is a great venue for intimate gatherings like showers. Very talented students were featured when I visited and the whole experience was very worthwhike

Thunder Bay Art Gallery has a huge space, so set aside at least an hour or two to see everything. Their exhibits are well chosen, meticulously set up and well chosen. The space accommodates larger pieces as well, so the sky is the limit as far as what you will see. The staff and volunteers are remarkably friendly and welcoming,... More

I attended the Gallery this afternoon and was really glad I took the time. The Michael Anderson exhibit of carvings was extraordinary. Etchings by George Raab were wonderful and spectacular. John Hartman's renderings were certainly thought provoking about " A view from Collins." This is a truly must see Gallery offering.

I wasn't sure about stopping by this gallery, but I had a bit of time by myself after arriving in Thunder Bay before the rest of my family arrived, so I checked it out. I'm very glad I did. This is a small museum, as another reviewer noted. There are three gallery rooms, one of large/moderate size and two smaller... More

Lots to see in the three gallery rooms. We also loved the handcrafted items in the gift shop- mostly jewelry and books. Free parking was a bonus.

Were rather disappointed with the very limited number of pieces, but what they had was nice. Lots of room, so hoping there are plans and arrangements to acquire many more pieces.
