The funds raised from the First Friday in May - Gala at the Gallery support our public programs including exhibitions, educational opportunities, and community initiatives. Gallery Stratford is funded entirely through grants, fundraising events, donations, sponsorships, memberships, and admissions. 

We are one of Ontario’s longest operating public art galleries and have been a significant contributor to the cultural heart of South-western Ontario since 1967. We annually present over 8 exhibitions of contemporary visual art, with a focus on regional and Canadian Art, which engages the public, creates dialogue, and offers this community unique opportunities for education, exploration, and interactive learning. Our growing collection contains more than 1000 works by Canadian and international artists.
