Our Annual Appeal Campaign has raised $60,000 thanks to the great generosity of our donors.

We are so grateful to all of you who have stepped up and given gifts. This is how we ensure that Gordon’s legacy continues to flourish in these difficult times. Because of you, several talented students will be receiving

scholarships this year to attend a post secondary institution to further their artistic endeavours, young artists will be able to continue to participate in virtual after school classes this spring and hopefully in person this summer and YOU will be able to enjoy our latest Exhibition; Unfixed, curated by Meredith Preuss.


All those who contributed $100 or more to the Annual Appeal were entered into the draw for a framed keepsake Smith image. The winner of the work is Diane Neufeld.


While the draw has concluded, we continue to encourage you to support us through your gifts, large or small. Every gift means a boost to art

education for youngsters who might not otherwise have an opportunity to nourish their creativity.

Please visit our website for information on registering for a visit to the gallery and for virtual events we are presenting in conjunction with the exhibition.


Thursdays: 12:30pm – 5:30pm

Please make 1 booking for each individual visitor. There are a maximum of 10 bookings available per time slot. CLICK HERE TO BOOK
