Durham Art Gallery is a non-profit, exhibition-driven space for contemporary art and culture in so-called West Grey, Ontario. From our earliest incarnation in the local Carnegie library to its current purpose-built home, the Gallery’s 40 years of growth have been marked by an engaged community and diversifying landscape. 

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.
