A Legacy

George Fry Gallery

Welcome to the George Fry Gallery at NBCCD!

Open to the public, our college gallery showcases the work of students, faculty, staff, 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, which gives students the chance to market and sell their 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. Visit us at 408 Queen St. in downtown Fredericton.
