The buzz at the SMU Art Gallery

Many exciting things are on the go over at the Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery! The exhibition catalogue for 'The Closer Together Things Are’, a publication that the Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery partnered to produce, has been shortlisted for the annual ‘Exhibition Catalogue Award’ in the 2018 OAAG (Ontario Association of Art Galleries) Awards. This exhibition, which features the works of many prominent Canadian artists, was on display at the SMUAG in the spring of 2018, and tours across the country between the fall of 2017 and fall of 2018. More information about the publication and awards can be found at

Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery has also received confirmation of an Operating Assistance to Arts Organizations grant from Halifax Regional Municipality, in the amount of $9000.00, for the fiscal year 2018-19. This is the fourth consecutive year Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery has received operating assistance from the Municipality!
