About Us


The Maple Ridge Art Gallery Society was founded by community art lovers in 1982. It was in April of 2003 that the Maple Ridge Art Gallery moved into its current location within the Maple Ridge Arts Centre & Theatre (The ACT), and by 2005, the operation of the gallery came under the guidance of the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council (MRPMAC).

 

Funding is provided by the generous support of individuals, corporations, community businesses, and the City of Maple Ridge. The gallery also raises money to support its programs through gift shop sales, gallery sales, fund raising activities, donations, and educational workshops and talks.


Our Mission


1. To engage the public in the visual arts and visual literacy through ongoing exhibitions, educational tours, workshops, talks and lectures. During the 2012-013 season the Gallery welcomed some 7692 visitors.


2. To support emerging and mid career artists by providing a place to exhibit and share their knowledge through talks and workshops. To provide a place for artists and artisans to sell their unique items in the Gallery Gift Shop. Our mandate is to offer one exhibit per year to a local arts group.


Gallery Hours


The Maple Ridge Art Gallery is open through Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 to 4:00.
