Exhibitions

As the officially designated art gallery of New Brunswick, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery presents a rotating schedule of contemporary and historical exhibitions that give focus to the art and visual culture of New Brunswick and the Atlantic region, as well as of Canada and Britain as reflective of the particular nature and strengths of the permanent collection. The Gallery presents a wide spectrum of ideas, themes, and media within the visual arts, presents the work of both established and emerging artists, and provides a forum for the art of the province’s First Nations and Acadian communities. Along with organizing and circulating exhibitions, which include curated presentations of the permanent collection, the Gallery also hosts exhibitions on loan from other institutions.

Our exhibitions change every 3-6 months, so there’s always something new to see!

This means that, for a few weeks of the year, some of our Gallery spaces will be inaccessible or have limited art objects on view, as our staff work to install these exhibitions and take the time to produce professional and pleasing spaces for your enjoyment.

It also means that some works are not on display at any given time. If you have a specific interest, for research or pleasure, feel free to contact us to enquire about whether a specific work or artist is on display, and we will do our best to assist you.

We try to keep this page updated as best we can with a listing of currently accessible spaces and exhibitions, in order to help you plan your visit. Sometimes, however, operational conditions prevent us from doing so, so we recommend that you verify anything on your “must-see” list with our helpful Front Desk staff.

We hope that you’ll enjoy these exhibitions as much as we do! Perhaps you’ll find a new, unexpected favourite on display…
