Description: 
The Art Gallery of Peterborough is a small gallery located on Little Lake that caters to local artists and talent. When you visit the gallery, you will have the option to take a guided tour or even take part in a workshop. This gallery also offers a unique opportunity to rent or buy original work from regional artists for your home or business. The gallery is located in a house that was built in the early 20th century and the surrounding parkland is home to the summer Festival of Lights. The collection of The Art Gallery of Peterborough began in 1974, with a gift of historical European and Canadian paintings from the Peterborough Teachers' College. These works had been brought to Peterborough in 1910 when the regional Teachers Colleges were first established, and had previously been part of the collection established for the Toronto Normal School by Reverend Egerton Ryerson in the 1850's.
