Tired of looking at the same old scenery? Why not check out the gallery? Beauty IS in the eyes of the beholder, and here is the place your eyes will appreciate beholding. A great way to start conversations while appreciating fine artist originals and upcoming new art styles. Sculpture, colour, and a true feast for the eyes! Feeling peckish? Head upstairs to the fine dining experience upstairs. The only restaurant that allows you to buy half a decadent cake slice with your coffee. If you still feel like educating further, the library is right across the parking lot. REAL BOOKS and a REAL LIVE EXPERIENCE for all the bookworms!

This is a very small gallery with an extremely limited collection. Fortunately it is free, because that is about all it is worth.

The museum is tiny, but satisfying. It showcased many nice pieces, but lacked space. In fact, They need more funding to expand their space. Art pieces were awesome.

A gallery near/in the civic centre of Oshawa. A small gallery with around 3 gallery spaces. The collections of varied and the gallery containing the identity collection is nice. Some contemporary and more traditional works. A small group of children were having a lesson in 1 gallery which was also nice to see. We visited mid week around 11am, only 2 other adults present. Our 2 year old enjoyed the spaces that have educational activities for children. He was able to play with felt, do some colouring, write on the windows and have a photo in the selfie space. 1 hour was sufficient. No charge, the gallery asks for a donation. Small shop on entry. Parking close by for up to 2 hours free parking. Worth a visit.

We visited the gallery on the first Friday evening of the month, which is a "free" night. We have lived in Oshawa almost four years and always wanted to go so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. It was extremely busy, and as a result, very warm in the gallery but the atmosphere was enjoyable. In addition to the art there was music, and all in all it made for a very pleasant evening. We will certainly attend again.
