Established in 1976, the Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery specializes in exhibitions by local, national and international art organizations. The gallery is operated by Toronto Arts & Culture Services, with direction and support from the volunteer Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery Committee.
The Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery (ECCAG) opened in May 1976, designed as both a showcase for local artists and as a "cultural uplift" to the newly renovated civic centre. Over its history, the gallery has presented more than 400 art exhibitions. While Etobicoke arts groups have always been a mainstay, the gallery has also brought the world of art to our community, with national and international shows featuring works from artists across the globe, including Japan, Korea, Hungary, and Latin America.
Volunteers have always been key to the ECCAG's success. From 1976 to 1987, the Etobicoke City Hall Gallery Committee was responsible for all aspects of gallery operations. Throughout the four decades, volunteer committee members have programmed the exhibitions, coordinated installations and worked with city staff to maintain and promote this wonderful public gallery, for the benefit of everyone who visits the Etobicoke Civic Centre.
Our 2016 season includes eleven exhibitions from local, provincial and national arts groups. For details on our exhibitions, please click here.
The Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery Committee was formed to assist with the operations of a community gallery. The Committee provides their expertise to assist with community engagement, selects and coordinates exhibitions.
