George Fry Gallery

Welcome to the George Fry Gallery at NBCCD!

Open to the public, the NBCCD gallery showcases craft and design work of NBCCD students, faculty, staff, and invited artists in a schedule of regularly changing exhibitions. It is an exciting learning resource and features a wide range of makers, materials, and processes. It is also home to our annual Craft Sale, which provide students with an opportunity to showcase the skills gained in their entrepreneurship classes by marketing and selling their work in a public venue. Gallery exhibitions promote and demonstrate professionalism, enhance student employability, and contribute to the economic and cultural life of Canada. Visit us at 408 Queen Street in beautiful downtown Fredericton.

featured exhibitionIt started with a thought...

Visit the George Fry Gallery from March 2 to 28 to experience an exhibition by students, alumni, and staff from NBCCD’s Wabanaki Visual Arts studio. The exhibit considers Indigenous storytelling and relationality through beadwork, wood, wampum, painting, photography, and quillwork. In the Wabanaki First Nations oral tradition, the world was created with a single thought from a mystical being—demonstrating that every being and object is interconnected and even the smallest ideas matter.

Masks required.
