I am a local patron who loves to frequent the gallery, whether just popping by with a friend for a visit or to pop into the gallery gift shop to pick up a gift. The AGP gallery is a hidden gem, that shouldn't be missed.

I grew up in Peterborough and went here often. They get great exhibits fro pretty well known Canadian artists, especially for a gallery this size. Admission is also free, and it's in a beautiful location overlooking Little Lake.

This gallery marries an old house on the waterfront with a new , more brutalist extension, in the Trent University style. A good combination, providing the light area space of the house for the offices and gift shop and a more vault-like exhibition space in...More
