Exhibitions at the Public Art Centre take place in our Gallery ONE, TWO and THREE. Tours are free of charge and can be organized in advance for school and community groups. For more information please see Education Programs.

Gallery THREE is dedicated to the Public Art Centre's permanent collection. It is important to us to feature and rotate our collection to ensure the appreciation of this valuable collection. The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre’s Permanent Collection is one of the largest and most significant in the St. Thomas and Elgin County region, made up of approximately 1700 artworks of local, regional, national and international origin in a variety of media, with special emphasis on contemporary and historical Canadian art, - in particular Canadian - and on the artists associated with St. Thomas and Elgin County.
