This year, we are able to build on the success of the 2020 TD Artist Guide, and are inviting other arts organizations to share their work and programs with the public, building a month-long series that does what we love to do the most: be creative and share our wealth with one another.

We are excited to announce that the our Art Rental & Sales program has expanded! In addition to the Massey Sales Gallery, we have dedicated a second space to show local fine art in the new Spencer Showroom. The Spencer Mansion, built in 1889, serves as a beautiful contrast to the contemporary works now on display.

Last March as we geared up to have our annual volunteer appreciation events and celebrations, COVID-19 came in the way and brought our volunteer program to a halt.
This year’s school workshops have gone virtual! The AGGV’s workshops for school-aged learners look a lot different this year, and we’re excited to share them with you! This project started with a heartfelt conversation between local artists Bradley Yuxwelupton Dick, Farheen HaQ, and the AGGV’s Educator of School & Family Programs, Jennifer Van de Pol.

To all of our readers, a warm hello! My name is April Caverhill, and back in October, I took on the role of Family Sunday coordinator. It’s been a treat so far.

There are certain words we seem to use repeatedly when talking about art-making. Express! Explore! Create! Such words are generally synonymous with the creative confidence of a child but at the AGGV Studio we say “Hey! Adults!” come celebrate your expressive exploratory creativity too.
With school being quite different from the norm during the pandemic, the AGGV is excited to lend a helping hand with our Teacher Resource Guides.
