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.
