Art Gallery of Sudbury

The Art Gallery of Sudbury was established in 1967 as a Centennial project of the Sudbury and District Chamber of Commerce. Originally operating as the Laurentian University Museum and Art Centre, the gallery was incorporated in 1997. Housed in a turn of the century mansion, the former residence of lumber baron William Joseph Bell, the gallery has a unique architectural appeal. Local history and contemporary works of art come together in the lush surroundings of the Gallery grounds. Our exciting exhibitions, lecture series, art classes, special events, facility rentals, the opportunity to rent and buy local art and purchase Canadian art from our boutique make the gallery a gathering place for the local community. The Art Gallery is open to the public year round.

The Art Gallery of Sudbury / Galerie d’art de Sudbury is a dynamic bilingual public visual art gallery and key art educational, cultural and tourism destination in Northeastern Ontario, creating meaningful engagement opportunities in dialogue with contemporary artists and our permanent collection for all who visit the gallery — and beyond.

Myth and Mirrors Community Arts

Contact Name: Blaire Flynn

“Through the process of multi disciplinary artistic practices and public art interventions, Myths and Mirrors collaborates with community to weave art and story into the landscape and practices of our daily lives.  We actively seek unexpected connections, openings, opportunities and possibilities of collectively being in the world.  We push boundaries and create openings for public participation in social transformation.  Everyone is welcome to imagine and create community with us.”

We work to blur the lines between artist and audience and push boundaries around places of artistic creation and experience. We use methods of artistic subversion to question who is artist, who is audience, where and when art is made and experienced. As community and environmental connections become increasingly electronic and virtual, Myths and Mirrors seeks ways to reconnect. We believe it is necessary to find opportunities for first hand connections. By sharing our stories in meaningful and tangible ways we humanize and learn to be a community.

While M&M continues to create collaborative visual art such as murals, we are also directing our energies toward performance, puppetry and circus arts.
