The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre is a non-profit 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 if 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.
