About The Craig Gallery

The Craig Gallery provides an important opportunity for amateur and established artists to display their works. Painters, sculptors, and interactive multi-media artists have exhibited their works in the Gallery to date. Future plans for the Gallery include programs for children providing education and exposure to the world of visual art. We believe that Alderney Landing is an important component in the development and overall enhancement of the visual arts in our community.

Founded by Jack and Joan Craig, this private family foundation supports the visual and performing arts in Nova Scotia. As long time philanthropists, Mr. and Mrs. Craig have contributed to a number of local and provincial organizations with emphasis on the visual and performing arts. The Craig Foundation has contributed significantly to Alderney Landing's Capital Campaign and in recognition of their donation; Alderney Landing's Art Gallery is designated in their honour.

The Craig Gallery is staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers, some of whom belong to the Dartmouth Visual Arts Society. Becoming a Craig Gallery Volunteer is a wonderful opportunity to see a wide variety of art, meet new people, and help support the arts in Dartmouth. Please call (902)461-4698 if you wish to become a volunteer at the Craig Gallery at Alderney Landing

 Of all the various galleries in which I showed my work, Craig Gallery was definitely the most memorable
and pleasant.

 The Craig Gallery provided both my 2010 and 2013 exhibits with a bright yet intimate space to show my work and a fabulous location that attracts a wide and varied audience. Thank you to the Craig Foundation and its staff and volunteers for two great experiences.

 Working with the Craig Gallery was so satisfying for both Visual Arts Nova Scotia and our Mentorship Program artists. The atmosphere is very professional while also flexible and collaborative. Our Mentorship Program exhibition at the Craig Gallery garnered us our first media coverage of the annual exhibition with significant articles in the Chronicle Herald and The Coast weekly providing welcome exposure for the continued success of the program. I am certain that this success was in large part due to the dedication and promotion of the Craig Gallery, and I was happy to see several media outlets at the opening event to interview the program’s artists.
