WHO WE ARE

The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) is a public, not-for-profit, art gallery generously sponsored by the City of Mississauga, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, private citizens and its members. Visitors to the AGM enjoy a diverse programme of changing exhibitions, ranging from historic to cutting-edge contemporary art, photography, design, crafts and community friendly exhibitions.   As a public gallery with a strong community connection, the AGM is interested in assisting visitors as they learn about art.  The gallery therefore offers a wide range of tours, discussion, and workshops for adult learners, as well as innovative youth programmes for schools, universities and community groups.

The gallery is envisioned as a centre for community building which aims to energize the cultural producers of Mississauga and beyond.  The AGM is committed to presenting stimulating exhibitions which are aesthetically strong  and intellectually challenging alongside multi-platform ancillary events.  A particular interest is in projects that engage our community and reflect our awareness of contemporary and relevant cultural  topics and issues.  Crossing of social boundaries in terms of artistic discipline is vital by linking elements, concepts and notions that are at the core of universal artistic expression, and traversing social and class lines in valuing multiple audiences is paramount to visual art experiences at the AGM.


The AGM is proud to admit people free of charge, serve communities, and provide positive visual art experiences for all visitors.
