We were looking forward to seeing the current exhibition of Arthur Shilling painting and were not disappointed. What a great show. I am not sure how many people did get to see it. Sadly we were the only ones there on a Sunday afternoon and by all appearances were the first ones through the door that day. It is a... More

The Thunder Bay Art Gallery is tucked on to a piece of Confederation College's Campus. It is a must see for any one who appreciates the Arts. The gallery is home to many works of Aboriginal Artists as well there are installations travelling through all year. If you are visiting Thunder Bay the Art Gallery is a must see!

A small but very worthwhile art gallery on the campus of the Confederate College. Exhibit of superb basket weaving and contemporary art by First Nation artists at the time we visited . The gift store is a treasure in itself with reproductions of Norval Morrisseau prints on shirts, umbrellas, mugs ,purses, magnets and key chains. I could have spent a... More

This small art gallery is a tribute to its founders. The gift shop is tastefully done and the public room is a great venue for intimate gatherings like showers. Very talented students were featured when I visited and the whole experience was very worthwhike

Thunder Bay Art Gallery has a huge space, so set aside at least an hour or two to see everything. Their exhibits are well chosen, meticulously set up and well chosen. The space accommodates larger pieces as well, so the sky is the limit as far as what you will see. The staff and volunteers are remarkably friendly and welcoming,... More

I attended the Gallery this afternoon and was really glad I took the time. The Michael Anderson exhibit of carvings was extraordinary. Etchings by George Raab were wonderful and spectacular. John Hartman's renderings were certainly thought provoking about " A view from Collins." This is a truly must see Gallery offering.

I wasn't sure about stopping by this gallery, but I had a bit of time by myself after arriving in Thunder Bay before the rest of my family arrived, so I checked it out. I'm very glad I did. This is a small museum, as another reviewer noted. There are three gallery rooms, one of large/moderate size and two smaller... More

Lots to see in the three gallery rooms. We also loved the handcrafted items in the gift shop- mostly jewelry and books. Free parking was a bonus.
