Named after NSCAD University’s feisty Victorian founder, the Anna Leonowens Gallery (ALG) is a public exhibition space offering emerging artists hands-on experience for what is often their first solo exhibition.

The ALG has three locations: two storefront premises in Granville Mall and the Port Loggia Gallery on the Halifax waterfront. These spaces are devoted to the exhibition of contemporary studio and media art, craft and design, and curatorial projects generated exclusively within the university community.

With more than 125 exhibitions a year attracting over 20,000 visitors, weekly exhibitions primarily feature student work, with occasional shows by faculty members, visiting artists and curators, and two-week graduate thesis projects. Learn More →
