The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre is an incorporated non-profit, charitable organization with the objective to encourage and promote an appreciation for, and support the practice of the visual arts in St. Thomas, Elgin County and surrounding area. This has been accomplished in three predominate ways since the Art Centre's establishment in 1969: a permanent art collection that consists of over 1500 works, 16 exhibitions annually, that feature the work of local, regional, national and international artists, and ongoing educational programs for both adults and children.
Essential to the success of any organization is the ongoing cooperation of its supporters. The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre wishes to gratefully thank the City of St. Thomas, the County of Elgin, its’ membership, donors, and sponsors for their support.

the graphic novel project
Over this past winter, children between the ages of 8 and 12 from our community got together at both the Art Centre and the library to participate in "the graphic novel project". They spent the day with a graphic novelist, attended multiple workshops to learn about illustrating and writing and set about creating their own books. Their completed works will be on display at the Art Centre from April 16-30, 2016.
