George Fry Gallery

Open to the public, our College gallery showcases the work of students, faculty and invited artists in a schedule of regularly changing exhibitions. It is an exciting learning resource that features a wide range of makers, materials and processes. It is also home to our annual Christmas Craft Sale, a chance for you to market and sell your work in a public venue. The gallery exhibits promote and demonstrate professionalism, enhance student employability and contribute to the economic and cultural life of Canada.

He was awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for a lifetime of contributions to the arts, and he continued to make, exhibit and inspire fine art and craft until his death in 2014.
