Gallery Closure Update

March 10th, 2021

While the RMG could be open to the public now within current public health and Provincial guidelines, we are taking this opportunity to undergo some essential and critical maintenance to our building.  We know many folks are anxious to visit once again, however the work is necessary for the ongoing health and safety of our collection and visitors.

We appreciate your understanding and hope to confirm our opening date by the end of March.

In the meantime, please check our Virtual RMG and a special series we’re launching with our cultural partners in Oshawa, Culture Chats @ Lunch.

Take care,
