“Good collection of Canadian art.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This art gallery proved to be quite interesting and educational. It has a good collection of relevant Canadian art and is rather quick and enjoyable to peruse through.

“Arts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Pretty good for Charlottetown, some folks call it the cultural capital of Canada. Confed Ctr. Rivals serious self-righteous places like Ottawa's National Arts Centre
