Background |

Founded in 1979 in Durham, West Grey, the Durham Art Gallery is a regional arts organization serving Grey and Bruce Counties. Our mandate is to inspire, educate and delight people of all ages through access to a wide range of contemporary art. We embrace a multidisciplinary view of cultural practice and present visual and media art together with literary and performance events.

From our earliest incarnation in the local library to our current purpose-built home, the Gallery’s evolution has been marked by transformation and maturity. Over the past years we have introduced new exciting initiatives: off-site exhibitions in supermarkets, public parks and local businesses; satellite events in underserved communities; collaborations with art universities and colleges across Ontario, and the launch of several professional arts festivals: the Words Aloud Spoken Word Festival began as a collaborative effort between the Gallery and the Words Aloud Collective. Hosted by the Gallery and organized in collaboration with OCAD University, the Common Pulse Festival is a panorama of emerging art genres and practices.
