Beaverbrook Art Gallery
Due to the COVID-19 virus and construction of the Harrison McCain Pavilion, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery is currently closed to all visitors and other groups.
A world-class collection meets the tranquility of the Maritimes at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton – explore outstanding art and exhibitions from an international collection, without the hustle and bustle of larger cities. Centrally located on the banks of the Saint John River and across the street from the Provincial Legislature, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery provides an ideal venue to experience an international art collection featuring works by renowned and rising artists alike.
The Beaverbrook Art Gallery presents contemporary and historical exhibitions giving focus to the art and visual culture of New Brunswick and the Atlantic region, as well as of Canada and internationally, reflecting the particular strengths of the permanent collection. The gallery provides a forum for the art of the province’s First Nations and Acadian communities. Along with organizing and circulating exhibitions, including curated presentations of the permanent collection, the Gallery also hosts exhibitions on loan from other institutions.
Exhibitions are changed multiple times per year, providing a wide variety of art works and the opportunity to see new works upon repeat visits. Each exhibition season typically includes a mix of traditional and contemporary, permanent collection and visiting works, and a variety of media.
Services include guided tours (booked in advance); art camps and programs for children, teens, adults, and families; lectures and educational programming; a gallery shop featuring reproductions from the collection and locally-sourced fine craft; gallery space rental for events; and much more.
The Gallery may be closed to visitors for the time being but they are still available virtually. Our exhibitions, programming, and digital teams have been hard at work finding new ways to bring the Gallery to you at home!
