Beautiful old building that once held the Library nicely renovated. Rotating displays all items can be purchased. I bought a unique raku polar bear. Unfortunately, the 'clerk' we had was unfriendly and came off as snobbish. Did not suit the small town feel of Dundas...Maybe better training is needed? Still worth a look around.

Just before Christmas we decided to stroll around Dundas and stopped into Carnegie Gallery . What a lovely gallery ! As it was the Christmas season many different artists had their wares on display for purchase. The many tree ornaments were wonderful and the pottery and art works were really a joy to look at ! I bought each of my grandchildren pretty Angel ornaments that they will treasure for many years to come. We really enjoyed our time here and will definitely be returning for another look. Many of the artist are local and it's great for them to have such a nice place to display their artwork and pottery etc ! The staff were very friendly and helpful.

It's wonderful that if I have a place where local artists can display their art. it's great that the community comes out and supports local people with an establishment like this. Also it's great that community has made use of this wonderful old Carnegie library. Remember when I was a kid living in Dundas this was our library a great gift from the Carnegie foundation

This is the favorite art gallery of my Canadian friend who lives in Dundas, a former town and now a community of Hamilton as a result of amalgamation.

At the time of our visit, the gallery had lots of original works in different media by local artists that included glass, woodcuts, screen prints, acrylics, oils, and mixed media. One work was a mixed media piece that resembled a tree and was made of clay, India ink, paper, and wire. It was titled Unbound by Gise Trauttmansdorff.

I especially liked a woodcut titled Heading Out by Ralph Heather, a mixed media graphic in a zigzag design titled Pop Psychology by Karen Thiessen, and a wall hanging that was a collage of birds, a statue, snowflakes, and a twiggy tree titled Story Without Words by Roger Wood, plus another titled Tulip 2 in delicate pastel shades by an unknown artist

There were some cases of hand-made jewelry that included bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.

My friend bought some limited-edition artwork print note cards. I got an oversized postcard with a line drawing of the Carnegie Gallery building shaded in pale colors by Danuta Niton in a series called The Historical Buildings of Dundas. It was $3.00 CAD. The building was formerly occupied by the public library. I also got a large oblong note card with its envelope that was a painting of Webster’s Falls in Dundas, the best-known of the waterfalls in that area and the place we were headed next. That was $4.00 CAD. With the 13% tax, the total was $7.91 CAD.

And, as expected with galleries, admission is free.

I rate Carnegie Gallery at 5.0. I highly recommend a visit to anyone who appreciates artistic talent and creativity.

For those who can’t or don’t want to climb the stairs at the main entrance, there is an elevator that is accessible via the side entrance on Ogilvie Street.

A smaller gallery but many interesting displays,particulary in pottery made by local artists.Only reason i subtracted a star is the difficulty for people with physical challenges would have difficulty with stairs.

Whenever I go walking in downtown Dundas, Ontario I make a point of stopping in to the Carnegie Gallery at the corner of King & Ogilvie St. It’s a beautiful old building that started as the public library. There are entrances with stairs on King & Ogilvie plus an elevator off Ogilvie St. The artwork consists of paintings, sculpture, pottery, glass, photography, jewelry & more. I’m constantly amazed at the quality of artists in our region. I particularly like the Raku pottery. This is an attraction that shouldn’t be missed. Make an effort to come to Dundas for this gallery alone. Come during one of the festivals, Buskerfest or Cactus Festival & see what the town has to offer.

This gallery always has a great curated show and lots of great gift items like ceramics or jewellery. I think the exhibit changes each month and there are a lot of variety between their shows.
