Santiago El Grande, by Salvador Dali

   One of the Gallery's most renowned attractions is our awe-inspiring Santiago El Grande, by the celebrated Spanish artist Salvador Dali.
   This famous painting never fails to impress visitors with its mystery and grandeur. It is one of the finest examples of Dali's religious period, laden with intriguing symbols which visitors enjoy discovering.

   Lord Beaverbrook's magnificent contribution has inspired the generosity of others. Successive generations of the Aitken, Hosmer-Pillow-VaughanFlemer, and Harrison McCain families have shared their passion for the arts by making substantial gifts to the Gallery.

Yvon Gallant, Aveugles Au Coin St-Denis, Cherrier, Montreal, 1987

Phillip Iverson, Night Train, 1991   Canada's cultural community is celebrated and explored through dynamic programming, art exhibitions, lecture and film series, art tours, and special presentations.
    For many of us, our first visit to an art gallery was on a school tour. Today, that tradition continues with our vibrant school tour program, which offers exciting opportunities for young people learning to look at art. Discoveries in art for all ages come about through workshops, art camps, self-guided activities, and special seasonal celebrations for families, such as the annual Open House and the Nutcracker Tea.
   How does all this happen? The Friends of the Gallery, members and volunteers, are its mainstay. Their enthusiasm attracts supporters; their excitement about art inspires children; their talents add flair to special events; and their vision provides for the Gallery's future. Join us and share the experience!
