The Robert McLaughlin Gallery is celebrating Doors Open in Oshawa on May 6th. Come discover this year’s theme with us, FOOD!

Join a guided architecture + art tour

11 AM and 2 PM

Our welcoming Visitor Engagement Assistants will deliver tours of this stunning modern building. Discover the original vision for Oshawa’s public gallery, brought to life in 1969, and how architect Arthur Erickson designed a massive 36,000-square-foot extension that made the gallery what it is today.

Participate in a family-friendly art-making activity

10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Have fun making your very own food inspired piece of art, combining gel plate printmaking with decorative paper collage techniques. It’s a recipe for creativity!
