Art Gallery of Bancroft

The Art Gallery of Bancroft (AGB) is a public art gallery in the town of Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.  The AGB boasts a permanent collection including a large collection of Oscar Schlienger's work. The AGB Gallery Shop displays work from the area's artists and artisans and exhibitions from local art and craft associations. 

Operated by  volunteers and financed by fundraising, the AGB mounts 10 exhibitions per year focusing on local  artists.  Every month the Gallery presents new shows, which include the annual "Invitation - Juried Exhibition" for which the best in show receives the David B Milne Award.  Exhibition proposals are accepted for the Dec 21 and June 21 deadlines.

In encouraging public participation in the visual arts, the Gallery runs a slate of workshops (mostly one-day sessions) throughout the year with talented instructors teaching skills in a variety of artistic media.
