AGB News

News, notes and the latest general information about the Art Gallery of Bancroft.


Several residents have asked where are the street murals created by our local artists. The murals have been taken down for reconditioning, as several of them were feeling the effects of the weather. The Gallery has plans to do some  rework  on them through the winter, and then remount them in the spring. 

Many thanks to the Town works department for their assistance in taking down these items.

What a great year it's been at the AGB!

Our monthly shows have brought an eclectic mix of art to the region, ranging from the work of a printmaker based on the Bayeux Tapestry, to a series of paintings that celebrated the ability of classical music to inspire abstract art. We have showcased stunning photography that explored the transient nature of utility in today's brave new world, and been fascinated by the marriage of craftsmanship and natural science that taxidermy and museum display art creates.

A great time was had by all at the recent AGB benefit event "Brews and Blues" which raised over 5000 dollars to support the gallery and its mandate to grow and promote the arts culture of our community.

The silent auction table was a busy spot, as guests competed to get that final winning bid on a fantastic selection of mini original art, and our thanks go to all the artists who so generously gave of their time and talent with their donated pieces. Congratulations go to Dan Boileau and to David Maris for being the top fundraisers of the auction with their two very innovative and creative pieces which whipped up quite the bidding war!

Attention all “Starving Artists”! Let's talk about the grants available to individual artists in the visual arts field. A clear, concise and persuasive grants application is needed to bring success in securing funding from organizations such as the Ontario Arts Council.

Plan now to attend this informative "Show Me The Money" workshop. Roy Mitchell will outline the process of planning, writing and submitting proposals that represent your project, and will focus on how to best present your idea, prepare a budget and develop the necessary support material.

The Fade Kings are headlining the Art Gallery of Bancroft’s “Brews and Blues” event, coming up soon at the York River Room of the Bancroft Eatery and Pub.

Here's what music aficionados they say about them:

"The Fade Kings positively wail! A solid group of musicians, they were a huge hit with the crowd at the Limestone City Blues Festival. I hear mixes of R&B, soul, Latin, funk, jazz and blues.....This band is good!" ........ Ron Dickerson, Buff Blues, CFRC – FM, Kingston, ON.

"This is just one of those bands you want everyone to hear. They are that good! Great feedback, all saying how incredibly tight the band played"....... Steve Bartlett, Wingfield Farm Blues and Jazz Festival

This will be an evening you won’t want to miss! Don’t be disappointed: pick up your tickets now at the Gallery and enjoy an evening of great music, plus a whole lot more! How about:
