Mandate

The mandate of the Art Gallery of Northumberland is to promote and provide access to art and related programs as a community gallery for the enjoyment and education of the people of Northumberland County.

We exist to serve all of Northumberland County as a public gallery. We present intellectually stimulating exhibitions and programming, as well as maintain a permanent collection of visual arts. Along with exhibitions we fulfill our mandate through educational activities which encourage active dialogue between the Gallery audience and the visual arts; including lectures, films, workshops, artist talks and tours.

Student educational programs are provided both in the Gallery and in the classroom. Special programs for secondary school students have been developed in collaboration with community schools and teachers.

We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the Treaty and Traditional Territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer gratitude to the First Peoples for their care for and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.

Each of us have a responsibility to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
