We are a non-profit, exhibition-driven space for contemporary art and visual culture in so-called West Grey, Ontario. Durham Art Gallery rests on the traditional land of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, which is represented by the communities of Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. We thank them. We also thank of the Métis Nation of Ontario, whose history and people are well represented in what are now Bruce and Grey Counties. From our earliest incarnation in the local Carnegie library to our current purpose-built home, the Gallery’s evolution is marked by an engaged community and a diversifying landscape.
