The Arts in Bancroft Ontario
Art Gallery of Bancroft
The Bancroft Art Gallery is located in the old train station, on Station Street in Bancroft.
The gallery provides a new exhibit every month with an "opening night" evening usually held the first Friday of each month. Many local artists are featured in these exhibits and their works are also available in the gallery gift shop.
Other shows throughout the year feature well-known artists from outside of our area, which is an excellent way to expose local art enthusiasts to what is happening elsewhere.
For more information on the Art Gallery of Bancroft, including upcoming shows, please visit their website.
