The Art Gallery of Algoma
Art · Artisanat · Anokaajigan
This regional gallery maintains a visual library of over 5,000 drawings, paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and mixed media pieces depicting different perspectives on life. The Gallery collects and displays both work by local artists and work that depicts areas of local importance. Come in and experience the wilderness of Algoma in paintings by the Group of Seven, or the energy and beauty of the St. Marys River in Anishinaabe artist John Laford’s “Spirit of the Sault Rapids.”
Cultural awareness is raised through local, regional and national exhibitions, educational tours, and art classes. An education room in the Art Gallery is dedicated to nationally recognized local artist Ken Danby. Outside a Sculpture Park can be enjoyed. What will you learn and discover?
