Art Gallery of Guelph

The Art Gallery of Guelph (AGG) annually presents over 12 regional, national, and international exhibitions that explore contemporary and historical visual arts. AGG’s collections contain over 9,000 works, including Canadian and international contemporary art, Inuit art, and public sculpture.

AGG has the largest sculpture park at a public gallery in Canada featuring 38 works with an overall objective of 50 works. Education programming includes: family and culture days, children’s art classes, community events, artist talks, and guided visits.

The Art Gallery of Guelph’s mission is to be a leading public art gallery in Canada and a significant cultural focus for the university campus, the City of Guelph, the County of Wellington, and the surrounding region.

We believe contact with original works of art in a gallery setting enriches educational experience and contributes to the understanding of artistic vision.

AGG is one of Canada’s premier public art galleries. Its stimulating exhibition program and remarkable permanent collection make it an important educational resource, a centre of scholarship, and a key tourist destination.

Our objective is to present exhibitions that explore regional, national, and international contemporary and historical visual art.

Our artistic vision is to initiate dialogue, engage and challenge a broad audience. We promote education and provide a forum for the understanding of contemporary practice through historical research and interdisciplinary activities.

Our curatorial vision is achieved through an innovative program that makes contemporary visual culture accessible, engages the public, challenges the artistic and academic communities, and positions art in an ever-changing cultural landscape.
