About Us

The Tom Thomson Art Gallery develops exhibitions and programs that enrich the region and contribute to national visual arts discourse. We promote and support emerging and professional artists, advocate for the creative sector, and actively research, preserve, develop, and exhibit the collection to promote scholarship and to generate and explore new ideas. We are committed to welcoming and inspiring people of all representations, ages, backgrounds, and abilities.


To be an open landscape for exploring art.


Tom Thomson Art Gallery is a public art gallery operating within the municipality of the City of Owen Sound with an Advisory Committee comprised of members of the public and City Council dedicated solely to supporting the programming and operation of the Art Gallery. The Gallery is funded by the City of Owen Sound and by provincial and federal Arts Councils through operating grants. Named in commemoration of iconic Canadian landscape artist Tom Thomson whose work and legacy inspired the founding of the organization, the Gallery presents exhibitions and programs, and conserves a nationally significant collection of contemporary and historical art for the public.
