Anna Leonowens Gallery

Named after NSCAD’s Victorian founder—feisty heroine of film and theatre productions of The King and I—the Anna Leonowens Gallery is the public exhibition space and resource centre on campus. Three public galleries are devoted to the exhibition of contemporary studio and media art, craft and design, and curatorial projects generated exclusively within the university community. Weekly exhibitions primarily feature student work, with occasional shows by faculty members, visiting artists and curators, and two-week graduate thesis projects.

The gallery mounts 125 exhibitions per year on average, consistently attracting more than 20,000 visitors annually with a busy street-level location on a pedestrian mall in Halifax’s downtown core. Due to the gallery’s high profile, many exhibitions are reviewed by local, regional and national media outlets and arts journalists.

Port Loggia Gallery

In conjunction with the Anna Leonowens Gallery programming, we are pleased to announce the activation of Port Loggia Gallery, a dynamic new exhibition space located at NSCAD University’s Port Campus.

The Port Loggia aims to maintain an engaging program of student, staff and alumni led projects that can be viewed by visitors passing through the Halifax SeaPort.  Vaulted ceilings, diffuse natural light, and a high-profile location make The Port Loggia Gallery an ideal presentation space for works in a variety of media.
