About Our Gallery

The Grand Manan Art Gallery was established in 1993 under the umbrella of the Grand Manan Historical Society. The Locke family donated the land and the building which was renovated under the direction of architect John Large. The gallery was formally incorporated in 2010.

We are a seasonal gallery that displays work by artists from Grand Manan Island, the Bay of Fundy region and from further away. Our goal is to provide island residents and visitors with the opportunity to enjoy a diversity of quality exhibits by both established and emerging artists. Our exhibitions begin the first week in June and run until late September. The shows are 14 to 20 days in duration with a Sunday afternoon Opening Reception.

A volunteer Board of Directors maintains the building, plans the exhibitions, and serves in many other ways including hanging shows, preparing press releases, making refreshments for opening receptions, and greeting visitors to the Gallery. The Board is ably assisted by a dedicated group of volunteers.

We do not receive operational funding from any level of government, and we rely on our regular supporters to renew their membership annually. Click here to renew.

The Gallery welcomes workshops for both adults and children. Our boardroom is available to rent for educational and cultural initiatives.
