Who We Are

Through thoughtful and engaging programs, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (KW|AG) connects people and ideas through art. The Gallery's exhibitions and programs are built on the mission that art is the catalyst for shared experience, dialogue and imagination. The Gallery emphasizes contemporary art, often premiering works by Canadian and international artists. Exhibitions frequently draw upon selections from the 4 000-work permanent collection to provide a forum for dialogue. KW|AG plays a vital educational role in the community, offering a full spectrum of artistic experience for adults, children and families alike. Established in 1956 and operating within Centre In The Square, KW|AG is the oldest and largest public gallery in Waterloo Region: roots in the community, eyes on the world. For general information, contact mail@kwag.on.ca or Visitors Services at (519) 579-5860.

History

KW|AG is the oldest, largest collecting public art gallery in Waterloo Region. The Gallery is working to position itself as a leader in Canada. From its humble beginnings in a bicycle shed beside KW Collegiate, to a church meeting hall on Benton Street, to the Gallery's present purpose-built accommodation in the Centre In The Square, the Gallery is setting a new direction for the visual arts in Waterloo Region and beyond. KW|AG would not be here today without the vision of the founders and early supporters and builders who created this public treasure.In 2007, the Gallery celebrated its 50th Anniversary featuring a special exhibition titled A Telling Story: KW|AG @ 50 with displays of historical artefacts and artworks from the Permanent Collection, along with its recent commissions of the Gallery's ongoing Parochial Views photographic series. A 50th anniversary celebration alumni event was also in September 2007, attended by over 200 past members and supporters, board members, leaders and community champions
