The RMG is dedicated to collecting with intention in order to reflect the diverse voices and contemporary issues that make up the continuing story of Canadian art, including that of our local community.

The RMG annually programs over twenty exhibitions across six gallery spaces. With a focus on modern and contemporary Canadian art, we present a variety of exhibitions that reflect a diverse range of artistic output, including painting, photography, sculpture, film, installation and performance. Reflecting our commitment to connect our communities through art, we strive to produce innovative and timely exhibitions that recognize our collective responsibility to contend with the past and vision a more equitable, just, and expansive future.

We animate our exhibitions and collections through artist talks, lectures, workshops, performances, and conversations to inspire our audiences and activate curiosity. Dedicated to deepening and enhancing the experience of art for people of all ages, our programs bring people together to learn, experiment, dismantle, reflect, discover, question, reimagine, and create.
