Opened in 1971, MSVU Art Gallery exists as a resource to Mount Saint Vincent, communities served by the university, artists and art publics everywhere. The gallery reflects the university’s educational mission by emphasizing the representation of women as cultural subjects and producers. Through its focus on contemporary art and internships, the art gallery has been a catalyst to many careers in visual art. Its exhibitions explore various forms of cultural production, highlighting the achievements of Nova Scotian artists and themes relevant to academic programs offered by the university.

MSVU Art Gallery promotes critical access to its exhibitions through publications, lectures and other educational programs. It also manages the MSVU art collection, much of which may be viewed in the E. Margaret Fulton Communications Centre and other campus buildings. Exhibitions, publications and events are funded in part by a multi-year grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.

The office and gallery will be closed for the holiday on 22 December at 4pm. We will reopen on Friday 2 January 2015.

If you had work in the Annual Community Show and would like to pick it up before our holiday closure you may visit the art gallery on Friday,19 December from 9am -4pm. Saturday and Sunday, 20 and 21 December from 1pm-5pm; and Monday, 22 December from 9am – 4pm.

Your works can also be picked up in the new year beginning Friday 2 January.
