I enjoy taking my four year old on Sundays to their family art class. It's inexpensive and fun to get creative as they always have a new activity.

Make sure you go on a Thursday as there is no admission charge. It is a small museum that had three local exhibits. Popular with kids with activities.

An interesting display but very sparse. The major exhibit was a collection of photos of local migrate Mexican workers with their thoughts on being in Canada. It was rather repetitious but endearing as well.

Small gallery with free entrance on Thursdays! Open, airy, but quaint. The exhibits change frequently enough, and are always feature lesser known artists. There's also an interactive room -- great for kids!

We went to opening night of an exhibition of artist members of the art gallery, It was a classy event with food, wine, music and very good art. We were glad we went.
