Celebrating 50 Years!
Welcome to the LAGS
The Lunenburg Art Gallery Society was founded in 1972 under the auspices of the Heritage Society, to provide a home and display area for a collection of paintings by local artist, Earl Bailly. LAGS has since evolved into an independent society with around 150 members and our bright Lincoln Street gallery is a popular destination.
The Art of Our Community
Everyone is Welcome
We welcome artists with every level of skill and experience. You don't even have to be an artist! All you have to do is join.
In 2022 we will mount a new Member Exhibition on the first Friday of every month, April - October. For an annual membership fee of $40 ($20 for students) every member can participate in each of these shows.
We are a volunteer-run gallery and we encourage all members to donate time and skills if possible. Please note there is a 40% commission on all sales of artwork.
