A Legacy

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.
