About Our Gallery

Our building was originally a partially-built structure belonging to the Zion Full Gospel Mission. Ownership of the building was transferred to the Grand Manan Historical Society in 1992, and the Society renovated the structure to serve as an art gallery for the Island. The Gallery was established in 1993, and officially opened by the Hon. Hermenégilde Chiasson, Lt. Governor of New Brunswick in 2005. It was formally incorporated in 2010.

We are a seasonal gallery that opens during the first week of June and closes during the third week in September. We display work by both Island and off-Island artists. 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.

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

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

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