Making Connections - Kawartha Art Gallery

The Kawartha Art Gallery has been making connections in the community since its inception, when it was known in the late 1960s as the Kawartha Arts & Crafts Association. The Lindsay Art Gallery was then incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1983. In the early 1990s, the Gallery moved to its current home on the second floor of the Lindsay Public Library.
